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.)

No blood sugar rollercoasters!

Blood sugar-123rfLeft to conventional advice on diet and you will, more than likely, succumb to diabetes sooner or later. Follow your doctor’s advice to cut fat and eat more “healthy whole grains” and oral diabetes medication and insulin are surely in your future. Turn elsewhere for advice, however, on how to reduce blood sugars sufficient to never become diabetic or to reverse an established diagnosis, and you can create a powerful collection of strategies that handily trump the worthless advice being passed off by the USDA, American Diabetes Association, the American Heart Association, or the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

A blood sugar meter used pre- and post-meal can be a very powerful tool for weight loss and the reversal of metabolic distortions like high blood sugar. But you have to know how to apply the information.
