Low Carb Halloween Cocktails and Mocktails

October 28, 2021

According to Fitbit, the average trick or treater (or parent accompanying a trick or treater) walks 1.25 miles. That’s enough to work up an appetite for a pot of low carb turkey chili and low carb cornbread for you and your little ghouls and goblins. All you need is a piping hot low carb Halloween cocktail or mocktail as a reward for getting those extra steps in:

Low Carb Boozy Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte

This will keep you warm while trick or treating with the kids. It’s equally good with or without the spiced rum.
