Low Carb Strawberry Daiquiri Recipe

If you love keto cocktails with cute little umbrellas, you have to my keto strawberry daiquiri. This recipe uses fresh and real strawberries instead of a syrup mix. The syrup mix gets loaded with lots of sugars – a big NO on the keto diet. The syrup mix versions of strawberry daiquiri contain high fructose corn syrup. And syrup mix also has a high amount of carbs. Some recipes for keto daiquiri call for making a low carb simple syrup. That can be time consuming to pre-make ahead of time.

My recipe for this frozen strawberry daiquiri is low carb and doesn’t contain added sugars. This cocktail drink gets lightly sweetened with a sugar-free substitute. Plus we rely on the natural sugars in strawberries to yield maximum flavor. What’s the difference between my recipe vs. the syrup mix cocktail? Not only is mine far healthier. But I would like to say my version of a skinny strawberry daiquiri is far tastier than ones you can find at a bar.

A hint of lime juice is added to round out the mix. Lime juice is traditionally found in most strawberry daiquiri recipes.

Is Rum Keto?

Who said that alcohol shouldn’t get enjoyed while you are on a diet? It’s okay to consume alcohol in moderation or socially on the keto diet. You just have to make sure you are selecting the right kind to stay low carb. Most alcohol spirits are low carb. In fact, many are zero carb! These alcoholic beverages include vodka, tequila, whisky, gin and of course, rum. These options of alcohol all free from carbs, meaning you can enjoy your favorite drinks at the beach this summer without any guilt.

Don’t have rum?? That’s okay, you can use vodka instead.

Alcohol on the Keto Diet

When it comes to diets and alcohol, not many diets will allow you to consume alcohol. There are even a few that say alcohol has no place in a keto diet and if you are strict keto, then you should avoid alcohol. For those of us following a more relaxed version of the keto diet, you can consume some alcoholic beverages that have a low density of carbs in moderation or just socially. Don’t consume alcohol every night.  Alcohol gets considered a toxin to the body so it metabolizes it first. While your body is trying to rid out any of the toxins, foods eaten in the time period will get stored as fat, ultimately slowing down your metabolism. If you do plan on drink alcohol for special occasions, reach for low carb options. Drinks such as whiskey, tequila, rum, vodka and gin are all very low in carbs as long as the mixer is also keto approved.

Are Strawberries Keto?

Are you wondering if strawberries are allowed on the keto diet? The answer is yes. Strawberries are one of the select few fruits that are okay to have on a low carb diet. Strawberries only contain 12g of total carbs per cup.

Fresh or Frozen Strawberries

Are you wondering whether you should use frozen strawberries or fresh? Both can get used to this recipe, and it doesn’t change the flavor drastically either. Frozen strawberries will most likely have lesser nutrients than fresh strawberries. But if you are on a budget or have frozen available to you. Frozen strawberries are the way to go.

Mocktail Version

To make a virgin strawberry daiquiri, just use water in place of the rum. This is perfect for kids or those who can’t or don’t want an alcoholic drink but still want to enjoy a low carb strawberry daiquiri.
