MCT Purple Drink Rocket Fuel
This Purple Drink will win you over to the MCT oil side of life because its just that good. When I first started Keto I thought that MCT oil was just snakeoil, a hoax. As a result of creating this Purple Drink Starbucks Copycat I was totally won over. MCT oil is flavorless however once it hits your system you will feel like you drank rocket fuel.
I have never tried the Starbucks version of “Purple Drink” or “Pink Drink”. Due to the closest Starbucks is an hour away, I do not do Starbucks often. I do not drink coffee often because it is a trigger for my Rheumatoid Arthritis. So, I drink a lot of tea. It is for this reason that I try a lot of different teas.
I do not usually do not gravitate towards sweet drinks like this however the colors really got me thinking about it. When ate a Paleo diet I avoided artificial sweeteners but these day’s the Sugar Free Torani’s do not seem to effect my RA like real sugar does.
After seeing Passion Fruit Tea on sale at Albertson’s I looked up popular methods of making this tea and as a result this recipe was born. My favorite color is purple so I had to try this out.
Perfect Keto Summer Drink
This keto summer drink is perfect because it is cool and refreshing. There are plenty of caffeinated options out there but a good fat fueled drink is better than a highly caffeinated drink in my book. The MCT oil gives you a nice energy boost that is sustained for longer with less of a crash after.
I added MCT oil to it for an extra boost of energy and because I am keto, I love the fats!
Mct Oil and Keto
“MCT” stands for “medium chain triglycerides,” a type of fatty acid. MCTs are naturally found in coconut oil, and they have a few unique properties that make them an essential part of your keto fat-burning toolkit. –Source
Mct oil is an odorless, flavorless which is great because it is easy to add to drinks this way. You can purchase MCT oil powders that are flavored however I suggest when starting out sticking with the real deal.
There are many different ways you can take MCT oil, putting it into drinks is probably the easiest. Add it to a tea or coffee for an added boost of energy. It comes in powders, gel capsules and in the liquid form. My favorite MCT oil comes in Gel Capsules for easy packing to and from work with me.
My personal favorite is the c:8 blend from Kiss my Keto. I have tried other brands and this one is the best. It comes in a cool glass bottle with a pump so it does not make a mess unlike other brands. It is not cheap but you get what you pay for and this stuff is the best.
