Keto Tea Drink Recipes

Keto Iced Apple Green Tea

– Keto Summit

Keto Iced Apple Green Tea #keto https://ketosummit.com/keto-iced-apple-green-tea

Ingredients: brewed green tea, ice, apple cider vinegar, stevia.

Unlike many store-bought iced teas, this Keto-friendly version won’t kick you out of ketosis. The perfect, refreshing drink on a busy day!

Chamomile Mint Tea

– Paleo Flourish

Chamomile Mint Tea

Ingredients: chamomile flowers, peppermint, water.

Throughout history, chamomile tea has been given to people who were not feeling so good. It has a relaxing effect and can help you get to sleep at night. This makes it perfect for helping you to unwind after a busy or stressful day. You do not have to use peppermint in this recipe – just use your favorite mint to adapt the recipe to suit you.


Lemon Thyme Infused Iced Tea

– Paleo Flourish

Lemon Thyme Infused Iced Tea Recipe

Ingredients: black tea, lemon thyme.

There are fewer more refreshing drinks than a good low carb iced tea! And they’re so easy to make at home where you are in control of what’s in them. The lemon thyme adds a subtle lemon and herb taste to the tea that’s refreshing and light. It’s a lovely summertime keto drink recipe that will help keep you cool!

Turmeric Ginger Lime Tea

– Paleo Flourish

Turmeric Ginger Lime Tea

Ingredients: lime, turmeric root, ginger.

This nourishing Keto drink is more like an infusion than a tea, yet it still has all the goodness of turmeric and ginger. It’s a wonderfully reviving beverage if you are not feeling too great. Turmeric tea has long been used in Indian households as a remedy for colds and tummy problems. Adding the lime to this recipe provides a much fresher flavor.

If you’re loving the health-promoting properties of turmeric but don’t eat it every day, consider trying our very own Turmeric Soothe supplement.

Honeysuckle Tea

– Primally Inspired

Ingredients: honeysuckle flowers, water, ice.

Honeysuckle has several health-giving properties. It is used in Chinese medicine as a natural antibiotic and anti-inflammatory. And because of its natural sweetness, it makes a wonderful keto iced tea drink for hot summer days. Bruising the flowers before you make this helps to release the flavors and this can be done by gently pressing on them with a rolling pin. Why not ask a friend with a honeysuckle bush if you can pick the flowers, then you get the drink for free!

Iced Green Tea Mojito

– Primally Inspired

Ingredients: green tea, mojito mint leaves or spearmint or peppermint, cucumber, lime juice, sweetener of choice (use stevia), ice, lime (optional), mint leaves (optional).

Many green tea varieties can be helpful for those with digestive issues and can also assist with detoxifying the body. When teamed with lime and mint they can simply be used as a thirst-quenching keto drink that has such fresh flavors, it’s bound to leave you feeling rehydrated.

Keto Coffee Drink Recipes

Keto Coffee Recipe – 4 Variations

– Keto Summit

Keto Coffee Recipe

Ingredients: Variation 1 (Traditional): black coffee, MCT oil, ghee; Variation 2 (Coconut): black coffee, coconut oil, ghee; Variation 3 (Frothy): black coffee, coconut oil, ghee, unsweetened coconut or almond milk; Variation 4 (Collagen Boosted): black coffee, ghee, unflavored hydrolyzed collagen powder (we love this one).

Far be it from me to deny those on a ketogenic diet their morning coffee fix. I’ve brewed up four different options to help you keep your energy level high.

Keto Iced Lemon Coffee Recipe [Paleo, Low-Carb]

– Keto Summit

Keto Iced Lemon Coffee Recipe [Paleo, Low-Carb]

Ingredients: cold brew coffee, ice cubes, lemon juice, stevia to taste, lemon slice.

I’m not sure when I had my first iced lemon coffee, but I remember thinking it was genius! The citrus flavors make it even more refreshing and summery. So, start slicing up some lemons and make this simple drink instead. It’s Keto-friendly, low carb, and Paleo.

Ingredients: cacao nibs, water, gelatin, coconut oil, cinnamon.

Cacao coffee is a great idea for those of us who don’t tolerate caffeine too well as the levels are super-low in this recipe! With a subtle hint of spice from the cinnamon, this keto coffee can be enjoyed on chilly days to warm you. Don’t worry about adding the gelatin – although it is really good for you, if you don’t want to use it, just miss it out!

Coconut Milk Latte

– Steph Gaudreau

Ingredients: coffee, coconut cream or coconut milk, cinnamon (optional).

This is a versatile keto coffee recipe as it can be made with almond milk if you are not a coconut fan, or you could serve it iced as a refreshing long drink for a hot day. The cinnamon is optional but it does add a gentle warmth which goes really well with coffee. If you use coconut cream you even get the frothy head that you would expect on a latte!

Dirty Chai

– A Girl Worth Saving

This keto coffee has such a great hit of spice that it is almost a Christmas-y flavor in a cup! The ginger and cinnamon are warming as well as healthy for you and can be enjoyed at any time, but especially if you have a cold or are a bit run down. The gentle heat and lively flavor of this keto drink recipe are great for relaxing you and lifting your spirits!

Keto Flavored Water Drink Recipes

Zingy Salted Lime Soda

– Paleo Flourish

Zingy Salted Lime Soda

Ingredients: lime, seltzer water, salt.

This is the perfect drink to keep in the fridge for hot summer days as it is fresh in flavor and with the small amount of salt added, can really help with rehydration. To make this drink look even more appealing you could dip the rim of the glass in some lime juice and then in salt, making it look like a fancy keto summer cocktail!

Easy Flavored Water

– Keto Summit

Easy Flavored Water

Ingredients: lime, blueberries, raspberries, blackberry.

It has been noticed over the past few years that store-bought flavored waters can often have hidden additives that make it an unhealthy option, so why not make your own at home! Using fresh berries and citrus can help with hydration and can even encourage children to drink more water without taking in flavorings or preservatives. Perfect for a hot summer day, this keto flavored water served over ice is a great way to stay cool too!

Cucumber Basil Ice Cubes

– Paleo Flourish

Cucumber Basil Ice Cubes

Ingredients: cucumber, basil leaves, lime juice, water.

This might not quite be one of our keto drink recipes, but it certainly adds some interest to a simple beverage. Flavored ice cubes can look amazing when you serve them at a party, but these ones can even be used simply to flavor water for you to drink at home. The basil leaves will give off a fresh aroma as they thaw, lending an air of sophistication to your low carb drink!

Cucumber Lime Water

– Paleo Flourish

Cucumber Lime Water

Ingredients: cucumber, lime, water.

Cucumber is a cooling vegetable and makes a great addition to use as a flavor for water, especially for hot summer days. Adding the lime gives a zingy freshness to make these keto drinks even more refreshing. You can make this in a jug or buy a water bottle with an infuser in the middle. This bottle will hold the cucumber in the water and let it release flavor without it hindering you from drinking the water.

The Healthiest Keto Electrolyte Drink

Ingredients: Celtic sea salt, unsweetened aloe vera juice, lemon juice, spring water.

This beverage is great for boosting your electrolytes after a workout regardless of whether you are following a ketogenic diet! Aloe vera juice has a fresh tart flavor and when added to the lemon juice, it makes this drink a great thirst quencher. It is important to add the sea salt as sodium levels can fall quite fast during exercise and it adds a different level to the taste of the drink.

Rosemary Mint Soda

– Slim Palate

Ingredients: mineral water or soda water, rosemary, mint, lime.

This drink is probably better suited to the adult palate as it has the flavors of the rosemary and mint, making it a great drink to serve at parties. Flavored soda waters can also be a great way to wean yourself off the over-sweetened fizzy beverages you have been taking, especially if you gradually reduce the amount of sweetening agent you add. Serve with ice in a tall glass and enjoy!
