I have to admit that like everyone, once in a while I crave something different than water, and of course things like diet sodas, iced lattes, hot chocolate, juices and other sweetened beverages are off limits for me 🙅🏻♀️
Luckily, there are some pretty cool alternatives that satisfy my sweet tooth and we always make sure to have them ready in the fridge 🥤
Sour Lemon Beverage Co: these apple cider vinegar concentrates are so so yummy! We love to mix them with sparkling water or a different drink of choice and make mocktails 🍹
Favorite flavors include cherry limeade, spiced cider and blue lemonade 🍋

Bulletproof: I really love iced coffee and bulletproof makes this possible with their canned bulletproof lattes, espresso pods and ground coffee! I love that their coffee is mold free and a very high quality which is reflected in its rich taste ☕️
I love the nespresso machine pods and the canned vanilla bulletproof latte (other flavors include dark chocolate and original). The canned lattes are great because they are full of healthy fats and collagen and make a great snack replacement or an easy fuel if you’re fasting 🙌🏻

Marigold Bars: we love their collagen iced latte powders, both mocha and vanilla are super yummy 😋☕️

Crio Bru: this is a great swap for anyone craving a hot chocolate! This company sells ground whole cacao beans which can be brewed just like coffee to create a rich and nourishing chocolate bliss 🍫
We love to add in some coconut cream, ghee or “Lady Bird Provision” coffee bombs to make it a fat-fueled elixir 💪🏻
Cacao is super nourishing and a true super food when enjoyed correctly! Learn more about it here
LMNT Electrolytes: electrolytes are so important, especially when on a low carb, high fat diet. I will post more about their importance later! One of our favorite ways to get our daily dose of Sodium, Potassium and Magnesium is with LMNT electrolyte packages! These are formulated to contain the healthy electrolyte ratios and are sweetened with stevia so it does not raise your blood insulin and sugar 🙌🏻
I usually drink 1-3 a day and make sure to use a lot of salt on my food to get adequate sodium.
These come in a whole variety of flavors from fruity to chocolate and even spicy! But beware, these boys are salty and you need to dissolve them in at least 700 ml of water if you don’t like the salty taste!
My favorite is the chocolate flavor (what a surprise…) which I like both like warm or cold 🍫
Other ways to enjoy are with sparkling water if you want to create a sugar free soda!
Body Health Perfect Amino Powder: this comes in fun flavors like mocha, strawberry and lime, and is an essential amino acid supplement. Essential amino acids are the building blocks of all your cells and without them your body cannot function optimally. We typically have a scoop a day of the mocha flavor which we love to mix into coffee or even with the chocolate electrolytes ☕️🍫

Zevia: If you’re really craving something like a soda, this would be the closest alternative. They come in a wide range of classic soda flavors including cola, lime, grape and orange (the list is endless), and are sweetened with stevia which does not raise your blood sugar or trigger insulin response (which is the goal of our lifestyle 🙌🏻)
They also have a stevia sweetened tonic water and ginger ale as well as a line of smaller cans for children in fun flavors like fizzy apple and strawberry lemonade 🍓🍋🍏
Hella Cocktail Co: their bitters and soda line is sugar free and great for digestion as it contains a mix of gentian tincture and carbonated water along with some spices! It’s very flavorful and tastes better with every can. Since it’s not sweetened, it’s not what you expect from a typical soda so keep that in mind.
We love all their “zero sugar” flavors, but my favorite is the grapefruit variety, my mom loves the original “dry aromatic” 🍸
Hapi Water: these are sugar free juice pouches (they don’t contain juice) and are sweetened with stevia. I have tried apple, fruit punch and grape and love them all. This is a great swap for children since they look like Capri suns, and children don’t feel like they are missing out 🧃
Swoon: they make your classic lemonade, peach tea, strawberry lemonade and half and half sugar free!! They taste super yummy, and have no funky aftertaste! We love these as a base for ACV mocktails or just on ice 🍹
Moontower Matcha: this is a great brand of canned ceremonial grade matcha that is slightly sweetened with stevia. We love the original and the peach flavor and use it as a base for ACV mocktails for an additional health boost 🙌🏻🍵
It also tastes great with fresh mint and lemon juice 🍋
