Coffee Liqueur Without Sugar

There seem to be many coffee lovers in the Wheat Belly community, so I thought I’d share an old recipe I’ve had many times for Coffee Liqueur, similar to what you buy as Kahlua. I’ve served this to guests on a number of occasions and they’ve enjoyed it.

This version, unlike store-bought Kahlua, includes no sugar and has no carbs. (The alcohol from the vodka, however, can turn off ketosis if more than a little bit is consumed, something to be aware of for anyone trying to maintain ketosis.)

When I drink coffee, I like to add a tablespoon of skim milk or creamer, but I don’t like anything else in it.  (When I visit Sucre I sometimes have French Macarons with it though.)

There seems to be an ongoing debate as to whether or not coffee is bad for you, and I’d like to hear your thoughts on it.
