Coffee syrup is a very appreciated choice for giving your coffee an extra sweet flavor. The most popular coffee syrup flavors include hazelnut, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, lavender, peppermint, and rose. But the crucial ingredient in coffee syrups, sugar, is an absolute no-no on a keto diet. Fortunately, many coffee syrup producers have developed keto-friendly options for their products. Sugar-free coffee syrups use natural sweeteners, such as plant-based stevia and monk fruit, or artificial syrup sweeteners, such as aspartame, sucralose, and neotame.
If you add a sugar-free coffee syrup to your coffee and want to follow keto rules, use syrup with keto-friendly ingredients. Many keto-friendly coffee syrup varieties, including brands used in coffee chains, are widely available. For example, Starbucks offers a great variety of keto-friendly drinks, which you can get if you customize your order. The secret is the brand’s sugar-free vanilla syrup, which you can use to make your coffee sweet and bring that warm hint of vanilla. As vanilla is a mild and versatile flavor, you can use a sugar-free vanilla syrup as the basis for any syrup and add more aromas. For example, for a pumpkin spice latte, you can add some cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove to the syrup and complete the drink with plant-based, sugar-free milk.
