Daiquiri is a classic rum cocktail where the main ingredient is rum (my favourite!), fruit and sugar. And guess how many carbs an average lime Daiquiri has? Did you know that classic Daiquiri contains about 20-25 g of net carbs of which 16-20 g is sugar — all this just in one cocktail!

I made this low-carb alternative using just a few drops of stevia and it tastes great — even my non-keto friends couldn't tell the difference!

One serving recipe contains just 3.6 g of net carbs. And you can make it almost zero-carb: Substitute half of the juiced lime with some natural lime or lemon extract, 1-2 drops of essential oil.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

I want to thank BIG TIME for including carbs and net carbs. So many sites only list net carbs. I appreciate not so thank you very much.
