What kind of low carb alocholic drinks can you drink if you’re living a low carb or keto lifestyle? Typically you want to steer clear of wine, beer, and alcoholic mixers and cocktails if you want to remain close to your low carb diet. For most that isn’t a problem, however, what about fun summertime drinks like a mojito? Believe it or not you can still enjoy an adult beverage and live your best low carb life! If you like this recipe you’ll love my vodka lemonade, yes, that’s low carb too! Yes, yes you can with this perfect, easy to make low carb mojito recipe.

Refreshing Low Carb Mojito

The thing that makes a mojito have its specific taste is the combination of limes with the fresh mint. Yes, you need a little sweetness to curb the sour taste of the limes but that can be done with a natural sweetener like stevia.

What kind of sweeteners are natural and low carb?

I prefer to use Stevia when I’m going to substitute sugar. I don’t like products that contain sucralose (Splenda) so I avoid those when I can. It’s all about the 80/20 rule people. Other than Stevia, here are some of my favorite all natural low carb sweeteners:

  •  Erythritol – Found in fruits, vegetables, and fermented foods, it has a low glucose index of 0 to 0.2. You can purchase it at your local health food stores or on Amazon – NOW Foods Erythritol Natural Sweetener

  • Monk Fruit – This fruit is found in Thailand and China and is 300 times sweeter than sugar, so a little goes a LONG ways. Some say that it’s as sweet as Stevia but without the aftertaste that many don’t like that Stevia has. Make sure to read ingredients because some Monk Fruit products contain dextrose and maltodextrin or artificial sweeteners. A product like Swanson Purelo Lo Han Sweetener (Monk Fruit) is good to use.
  • Stevia – Like I said, this is my preferred sweetener. SweetLeaf Natural Stevia Sweetener
