Keto Tea Party: Green Tea Keto-Jito


FRESH TAKE ON TEA TIME

Who says you can’t have cocktails at a Tea Party? What is a Tea Party anyway if not an excuse to relax and enjoy pretty treats with your friends?

This Green Tea Keto-Jito is one of my favorite things to serve when I get together with my girls. And it is SO EASY and technically it does contain tea;)

Fat Snax - Fat Tea in Three Flavors

Want to switch up your morning routine?

Try switching out your go-to coffee for a Fat Snax Tea.

Every so often, I like to change up my morning routine. It helps change my perspective and helps me tackle my week with a new mindset. One thing you can do to change up your morning routine is switch out your caffiene source. The caffiene in Teas and Coffee work differently from one another. You might find that you prefer the type of caffiene in Matcha or Yerba to your usual black coffee.

Recently I discovered the brand Fat Snax. They have soft and delicious Fatty Cookies. And they also sell Fat Tea.

Fat Snax Tea comes in individual serving packets. Each packet contains Tea, MCT Oil, and just 1 net carb.

They us C8 MCT Oil derived from Coconuts. C8 is a type of MCT that gives amazing energy without causing gut irritation.

Fat Snax Tea is sweetened with Stevia. All you have to do is mix the packet with water (hot or Cold) and enjoy!

Fat Snax Tea now comes in three flavors: Matcha, Pu-Ehr, and Yerba.

Matcha is concentrated green tea powder. It has a strong, but clean caffeine and contains tons of antioxidants.

Pu-Ehr is a fermented Chinese Tea. It is loaded with flavor and antioxidants.

Yerba is a tea from South America. It has a crisp taste will wake you up on even the sleepiest of mornings.

I love coffee as much as the next person, maybe more. But If you are looking to change up your caffeine intake, I encourage you to try out Fat Snax Tea.

Recently I teamed up with the ladies at Boozy Ketones on Instagram to turn my keto-chata recipe into cocktails. I love that the Boozy Ketones Sisters have dedicated their feed to Keto Cocktails with under 5 grams of Carbs. (And the pictures on their Instagram are stunning!)

We started with my Keto-Chata recipe from The Big Book of Keto and added booze. I love Horchata in the winter time, oddly enough. It is served cold, but the mix of Cinnamon and Vanilla just taste cozy to me.

The Boozy Ketones also shared their Apple Pie Moscow Mule Recipe and their tips to making the perfect Keto Margarita.

Matcha Lattes are now Keto with Perfect Keto!

I often talk about my love for coffee. But lately, I have really been loving matcha lattes. The health benefits are amazing, and I love the clean energy it gives me. I really enjoy the rich earthy taste and how well it blends with fats like coconut milk and MCT Oil. But not all matcha teas are created equal. It’s actually really hard to find green tea matcha powder that has no added sugar.

Beware! Unsweetened Matcha at Starbucks are not a thing. As this Spoon University article points out, there is sugar in the Matcha powder itself at Starbucks. Even if you say unsweetened, you are still getting 32g of Sugar in a Grande Matcha Latte. While there are still plenty of other keto options at Starbucks, this is not one of them.

One of the only Matcha Tea mixtures I've found without Sugar is the Perfect Keto MCT Oil Powder in Matcha.

Perfect Keto Matcha makes the ultimate Keto Matcha Latte. It contains ceremonial green tea powder, Mct Oil Powder, and Stevia.

Just add hot water or coconut milk and froth up to make the perfect fatty keto latte.

The Health Benefits of Matcha are amazing! Matcha Tea is packed full of antioxidents. In fact there are the same number of antioxidents in one serving of Matcha as there are in ten cups of regular brewed green tea.

It's been known to improve blood flow, lower cholesterol, and keep blood sugar levels stable. Matcha also Boosts metabolism and burns calories. It is a perfect addition to your Keto lifestyle.

Perfect Keto Matcha Powder doesn't have to be used for lattes alone. Add a serving to your midday smoothie or your prework out snack for 1/2 the amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee. Or if you have a huge day ahead, mix this right into your coffee.

If you love the benefits of MCT Oil Powder but want a little added flavor and sweetness, try the Matcha Powder out. You'll be surprised by how delicious it is.
