The original Brazilian Batida is made with coconut milk, condensed milk, cachaca, sugar and optionally fruit juice. To make this cocktail low-carb, I used homemade keto condensed milk and skipped the sweetener. If you don't have cachaca, you can replace it with white rum - like I did - or vodka.

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.

- Prepare the condensed milk by following the instructions in this recipe. Freshly made condensed milk is liquid and thickens as you refrigerate it. Don't worry if it thickens, it will work just fine.
- Place all the ingredients, except for the ice, into a blender: coconut milk, keto condensed milk, lime juice, ...
- ... and white rum. Process until smooth and frothy. You can add a few drops of stevia if you prefer a sweeter taste.
- Fill two glasses with ice and pour over the blended coconut mixture. Garnish with lime slices and optionally sprinkle with some unsweetened shredded coconut. Enjoy!
