Ingredients for making this low carb recipe

Keto Coffee Syrup Recipe Ingredients

Discover the art of crafting a keto-friendly coffee delight with these essential ingredients.

From the rich flavor of Swerve Brown Sugar that won’t spike your carb count to the velvety embrace of butter and heavy cream, each element is carefully chosen to create a caramel-like experience.

Hot water blends these components seamlessly, while the magic of vanilla extract lends a touch of indulgence, echoing the subtle notes of a vanilla bean.

Delve into a world where taste meets health-conscious choices in every sip.

Swerve Brown Sugar- I use this low carb sweetener because it has the best flavor in my opinion.

Plus, the carbohydrates it contains are considered non-impact meaning it should not increase your carb count or affect blood sugar. 

Butter- Much like bulletproof coffee, adding butter is a great way to increase your fat intake without adding a bunch of extra carbs.

You could also add MCT oil but keep in mind that the small amount of butter mixed with the artificial sweeteners helps to make this keto coffee recipe resemble a caramel sauce. 

Heavy Cream- Heavy cream acts as a thickening agent as well as a sugar substitute in black coffee.

Hot Water- Hot water serves as the base for this keto coffee recipe, providing the necessary liquid to mix all the ingredients.

It helps dissolve the Swerve Brown Sugar and blend the flavors of butter, heavy cream, and vanilla extract seamlessly.

The hot water also ensures that the ingredients combine smoothly much like when making homemade lemonades.

The end result is a creamy and delicious coffee drink that’s perfect for a low-carb lifestyle.

Vanilla Extract- This ingredient is a wonderful addition to this homemade sugar-free syrup as it infuses the delightful essence of vanilla, reminiscent of the subtle notes found within a vanilla bean.

This sugar-free simple syrup is also a great addition to hot coffee and it will curb your sweet tooth without the need for added sugar.

Variations on this Keto Coffee Syrup Recipe

There are a variety of ways to customize this sugar-free coffee syrup to resemble all of your favorite coffee shop flavors.

Double the vanilla for a delicious sugar-free vanilla syrup bursting with that classic and comforting aroma.  

You can also experiment with adding a hint of cocoa powder for a rich and indulgent chocolate twist to your skinny syrups.

Replace the heavy cream with almond milk to create a lighter variation that still offers a creamy texture and delightful flavor.

You can easily make your own keto friendly version once you read this post that shares how to make the best almond milk.

Add a splash of maple extract for a simple keto maple syrup that is sure to enhance your coffee experience.  

To achieve the syrup’s classic consistency, consider adding a thickening agent such as xanthan gum or guar gum.

If you don’t have Swerve on hand you can use other low-carb sweeteners such as a monk fruit sweetener or monk fruit extract.

Just remember that this is one of those natural sweeteners that are 100–250 times sweeter than real sugar so use caution when adding it in.

You could also try a combination of monk fruit sweetener and half allulose.

This blend not only imparts the delightful taste of monk fruit but also provides the benefits of reduced calories, making it a perfect choice for experimenting with new recipes.

You can also use a liquid sweetener that fits into your weight loss goals.

Keep in mind that if you are looking for a liquid stevia extract without sugar alcohols, you should check the ingredients label.

Make sure it only contains stevia extract and possibly a carrier liquid like a cup of water or alcohol.
