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? There is about 20-25g of net carbs of which 16-20g is sugar - all this just in one cocktail! If you are wondering about the effects of alcohol on low-carb, read this.

I made this low-carb alternative using just a few drops of stevia and it tastes great! I made some of these for my friends today and they couldn't tell it was low-carb!

My recipe has 3.6 g of net carbs which is quite low. And you can make it almost zero-carb: Substitute 1/2 of the juiced lime with 1 tsp of natural lime extract. The net carbs content of such cocktail will drop to only 2 grams!

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.


Thank you Cheri!
