Do you want to stay low carb or keto but not give up your favorite drinks?! Well, don’t ignore this drink recipe if you’ve missed your frappuccinos. Here’s your chance to make a blended drink at home with the Keto Frappuccino—and what better way to keto on than to slash all of the calories and sugar content at the same time!
Starbucks vs. Perfect Keto
We all know coffee chains, like Starbucks, have many different drinks and flavored frappuccinos to choose from. Sometimes, they’ll even add drinks to the menu and label them “light,” yet will still contain way too much sugar for our low carb diet standards. Remember that any low carb lifestyle or the ketogenic diet has macronutrient targets of high fat, moderate protein, and low carb. With the high sugar content of your usual 16 fluid ounce Starbucks drink, this tips the normal targets as it’s much heavier on the carb side. Let’s compare the popular Starbucks caramel frappuccino with the Keto frappucino.
With the regular Starbucks caramel frappuccino, there is 15g of fat, 67g of carbs with 66g of that being sugar, and 4g of protein. While the light version of this Starbucks drink cuts the sugar content in half, you end up with 0g of fat. What, no fat?! The Keto frappuccino, on the other hand, has 8.1g of fat, 3.8g of carbs, and 10.9g of protein—and this is for one 16 fluid ounce serving.
Put those Starbucks cups down and create a more delicious yet lesser carb drink. Let me know how your Keto Frappuccino turns out in the comments below!
