Low-Carb Festive Beverages for the Holiday Season

Since it’s party season, I was going to write an article about how alcohol fits into a low-carbohydrate diet, only to realize I’d done just that last year. Since nothing has changed in the meantime, we’ve rerun that article here. Here are a couple of fresh low-carb drink recipes to help make your season merry and bright. Happy Whatever-You-Celebrate, and please drink responsibly!

Low-Carb Mudslides

I was almost done with 500 Ketogenic Recipes; I needed just one more recipe. The Facebook fans called for Mudslides, so here they are! They’re super-yummy — and deceptively innocuous-tasting — so be careful. (click image to view recipe)
