Sugar Free Hard Seltzer Strawberry Slushie Recipe
Summertime is the perfect time to enjoy a blended sugar-free cocktail especially if you are lounging by the pool. This recipe for keto hard seltzer strawberry slushy is an easy keto cocktail you can blend up for yourself and your friends. The inspiration for this sugar-free alcohol drink somes from TikTok. It has been overloaded with videos of White Claw slushies, so I figured I should show you how to make a keto verision of this fun cocktail.
The ingredients are simple. You can use fresh or frozen strawberries, or another favorite keto berry. You will also need sugar-free ginger ale, hard seltzer and ice to make this delicious keto strawberry frozen cocktail.
Is Hard Seltzer Keto?
The most common hard seltzer drinks you will see in the grocery store are White Claw and Truly. Both of these options do contain sugar, but it’s a very, very slow amount so they only have 2 grams of carbs per can. Lots of people drink hard seltzers on the keto diet. As long as you watch you daily carb count, hard seltzer drinks like White Claw and Truly are keto approved.
Look for the berry flavored Truly or a raspberry flavored White Claw.
Sugar-free Ginger Ale
Traditionally, ginger ale is loaded with sugar so make sure you don’t purchase regular ginger ale because it has lots of carbs in it. There are sugar-free options for ginger ale available at most grocery stores.
- Zevia Ginger Ale - Zevia drinks are soda replacements that are sweetened with the plant-based sweetener, stevia. They contain no artifical sweeteners or sugar. They are also gluten-free, vegan and free of caramel color.
- Canada Dry Diet Ginger Ale - This diet ginger ale is sweetened with Acesulfame Potassium and has caramel coloring.
- Sparkling Ice Ginger Lime - This sugar-free ginger beverage is sweetened with sucralose and has fruit juice for coloring. It has zero carbs per serving.
Keto Mocktail Recipe
If you don’t drink alcohol or want to make a version for your kids, you can make an alcohol-free version of this keto hard seltzer slushy. An alcohol-free cocktail is called a mocktail!
Instead of adding the hard seltzer, you can add either add more sugar-free ginger ale or flavored seltzer water. You may want to add a keto approved sweetener especially if you are making a strawberry slushie for the kids.
Favorite Keto Sweetener
This keto hard seltzer strawberry slushie doesn’t need addtional sweetener. It is mildly sweet on its own from the frozen strawberries. If you want additional sweetness, you can add your favorite keto sweetener before blending.
You options of keto approved sweeteners are monkfruit, erythritol, stevia or allulose. My favorite sweetener is by Lakanto. They have a powdered monkfruit based sweetener and a classic granular version. You can save 15% off your order with the Lakanto link above or use code KETOFOCUS at checkout.
