Making your own Sugar Free Kahlua takes just five minutes and is incredibly easy with a few simple ingredients and a good recipe!

When I mixed up my sugar free coffee liquor, I thought about why I rarely drink coffee liquor. I tend to want to sip on some coffee liquor in the evening… but then think about how poorly I sleep if I do that.

The solution?? I made mine decaf!!!

Is Alcohol Keto?

This, perhaps, is the bigger question.

If you scroll down and look at the calories in a batch of this sugar free kahlua you'll find that alcohol really isn't keto.

However, you can safely enjoy a drink now and then. In my opinion, we that eat keto need to relax now and then and having these little “cheats” that allow our body to stay in Ketosis are incredibly valuable to long-term keto success.

When I enjoy an evening drink, I prefer to pair a fat bomb or a piece of high-fat cheese with it.

Ya Feel It Faster

A word of warning, when your body is in a state of ketosis you will feel alcohol hit you MUCH faster than when you're not.

My advice…Keep your drinks small and sip them slowly

I am in love with these little grappa glasses I found while cleaning out the attic at our family farm.

They are the perfect container for sugar free kahlua!

I have been looking for different pretty glasses like these ever since and the closest I've been able to find are “Grappa” or sometimes brandy glasses.

Your New Favorite Keto Drink

My favorite thing about making my own coffee liquor (Kahlua) is being in control of all the things ?

In my opinion, regular Kahlua is a bit on the sweet side. You can dial back the amount of sugar substitute you use to get the perfect level of sweetness for you.

Also, I tend to be VERY sensitive to caffeine too late in the day which meant that I could rarely enjoy coffee liquor as a night-cap.

Therefore, when I mixed this up, I opted for decaf coffee.

I don't know about you….

I always buy ORGANIC coffee because of all the chemicals sprayed on conventional coffee.

In fact, as I'm writing this post from a cozy hotel room… I'm enjoying a cup of organic coffee made with my AeroPress which is what I travel with!

Finally, you can choose a base liquor of your preference. I have played around with using rum, vodka and brandy. All three yield excellent results.

Though, I tend to lean towards using brandy because it isn't derived from a grain and I enjoy the finished result.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve Bocha Sweet (or other sugar substitute) in your warm coffee.
  • Mix in vanilla extract, caramel extract and your choice of rum, vodka or brandy.
  • Pour into a container that you can tightly seal.
  • You’ll have a little under 5 cups. You can store in a mason jar or container of your choice.
  • You can drink this right away.
    However, you may prefer to age your homemade sugar free Kahlua for 1-4 weeks. I find that even 24 hours improves the smoothness of the drink.
