Can You Drink Cappuccino
on a Keto Diet?

According to experts, cappuccinos are keto-friendly. 

Cappuccinos made with almond or soy milk may be used in moderation when on a ketogenic diet. As part of a well-balanced ketogenic diet, these foods are low in carbohydrates and delicious.

Things get a little more complicated when you add in the milk and milk froth. To make your cappuccinos "keto," you'd like to find an appropriate milk substitute, but not all milk substitutes are made equal.

An espresso and milk-based cappuccino is a pleasantly simple (and caffeinated) drink. However, instead of regular milk, you'll need to specify heavy cream. Add a few pumps of sugar-free syrup if you like it a little sweeter.

A few simple substitutions and tweaks to the recipe allow you to enjoy cappuccinos while on a ketogenic diet. Using milk substitutes like almond, coconut, or cashew milk instead of conventional milk can make cappuccinos keto-friendly. 

Nut milk is often regarded as a better option than regular milk. One of the most commonly utilized low-carb milk options for a cappuccino is unsweetened almond milk, which is low in carbs and a great option for those on a keto diet.

Even though it is low in fat, it is a tasty and nutritious dairy-free alternative that is easy to whip up. Only 1.5 to 2 grams of net carbs are contained in a full cappuccino made with almond milk, based on the amount in a single cup.

The mild flavor of cashew or macadamia nut milk makes them suitable options for cappuccinos. If you're a vegan, you might also try soy or coconut milk.

Regardless of what milk substitute you choose to use, make sure it is unsweetened before adding it to your cappuccino. Sweetened varieties' added sugar contains carbs that, when ingested in significant quantities, can quickly accumulate in the body.
