Iced keto coffee uses just three very simple ingredients. In fact, I bet you can guess what I used in my coffee. Here's a bit more information for you.
Since you are going to ice it, you can either use hot coffee or cold coffee. I suggest brewing strong coffee for iced coffee. This way, it won't weaken when you add the ice cubes.
To make it really rich and creamy, add some heavy whipping cream. It will help the strong coffee be a little easier to drink. Plus, heavy cream is a great source of healthy fats too.
This is optional, but I enjoy sweet coffee drinks, so I added it. For my coffee, I used sugar-free vanilla syrup but use your favorite flavor.
I sometimes add in sugar-free cinnamon dolce syrup!
- Top with whipped cream. This is a fun way to make your iced coffee a little extra delicious. I have a delicious keto whipped cream recipe!
- Freeze coffee in an ice cube tray. Use coffee ice cubes instead of regular ice cubes. This will prevent your coffee from tasting watered down as the ice cubes melt.
- Refrigerate a carafe of coffee. This is a great way to always have cold coffee ready to use whenever you need it.

🍽️ Serving suggestions

No, they are different. Cold brew is coffee that is literally made without any heat. Iced coffee is coffee that was brewed over heat and then poured over ice.
This is a way to make low-carb coffee that is high in healthy fats. People usually add unsalted butter and an MCT oil or powder to it.
Alternatively, some use ghee and coconut oil. Then, it is all blended together.
The result is a coffee that tastes like a keto-friendly latte. Here's my recipe!
The best way to order a keto iced coffee at a coffee shop is to ask for unsweetened almond milk or heavy cream and sugar-free syrup.
I didn't use a sugar-free sweetener in this drink because the sugar-free vanilla syrup made it taste sweet enough. There are a lot of different sugar-free syrups you can choose from.
If you want a really creamy coffee, just use heavy cream and your favorite sweetener. The sweetener is optional. You can even just use coconut milk or coconut cream!
All of these options will make a keto-friendly coffee drink with amazing flavor.
