Drinking coffee or tea is not a requirement of the keto diet. It can provide you with a great way to get some extra fats and energy, but it is not necessary.
If you like the idea of getting a fat-filled energy boost in with your morning beverage, consider drinking a keto smoothie or milkshake instead:
- Keto Tropical Smoothie
- Peanut Butter Caramel Milkshake
- Blueberry Banana Bread Smoothie
- McKeto Strawberry Milkshake
- Cucumber Spinach Smoothie
- Blackberry Chocolate Shake
They are delicious, filling, and have plenty of ketone boosting MCTs.
Some common keto-friendly hot beverage alternatives you can also try are bone broth and herbal tea. You can even blend either one up with a keto-friendly sweetener and fats of your choice (e.g., MCTs, coconut oil, butter, and/or heavy cream) or a keto friendly creamer if you’d like.
