Low-Carb Raspberry & Blackberry Mojitos

|Low-Carb Raspberry & Blackberry Mojitos

This Mojito is a great addition to my keto cocktails. Make sure you use powdered - not granulated - Erythritol or use any of the sugar substitutes I listed in the ingredients below. I gave these mojitos a summer twist by adding fresh raspberries and blackberries - blueberries will work too.

Is Alcohol Keto?
Avoid drinking alcohol if you want to lose weight. Even if there is no sugar, your body can't store alcohol as fat - it has to metabolise it. This means that your body will utilise alcohol instead of body fat which will slow down weight loss.
