What to DRINK on a KETO DIET

Water.
You can use water enhancers, infusing it with herbs, or adding some lemon juice.

Sparkling Water, Seltzer, and Club Soda.
These are bubbly, zero calorie beverages that you can either drink plain or with some subtle fruity flavors.

Coffee and Tea.
Just don’t add any sugar or order any fancy sugar-ridden drinks at your local coffee shop.

Diet Soda. Like soda, but without the sugar and the calories.

Juice Alternatives. There are also some low-calorie and zero calorie drinks like Powerade Zero and Vitamin Water Zero that taste good and hydrate you without the extra sugar.

Low-Carb Dairy Products and Dairy Alternatives. A little bit of milk in your coffee or tea is okay, but don’t have too much. If you need to use more than a couple of tablespoons of milk, try using heavy cream or a dairy alternative like unsweetened coconut milk or almond milk instead.

Energy Drinks. Most energy drinks are packed with more sugar than soda, but there are many low-carb and zero carb energy drinks on the market. However, just because it says “low-carb” on the container doesn’t mean that it will fit within your daily carb limit. Always read labels carefully, especially when you are purchasing energy drinks.

Keto Smoothies. Even though fruit is generally high in carbs and not recommended on the ketogenic diet, you can still make delicious, low-carb smoothies. All you need is some low-carb produce like berries and spinach, natural flavorings, low-carb nut milk, and plenty of fat from avocados, egg yolks, MCT oil, and/or high-fat yogurt.

Keto-Friendly Alcohol. Hard liquor, light beer, and unsweetened wines are some alcoholic beverages that you can enjoy on the ketogenic diet. Don’t forget, however, that alcohol is poisonous to the body, so it is best to consume these drinks in moderation.
