Take your favorite brunch cocktail and level it up to make these Orange Creamsicle Mimosas. Imagine the Orange Julius of your childhood, in a fun, adult boozy version.
An Orange Creamsicle Mimosa with a low carb twist
This low carb Orange Creamsicle Mimosa is what my brunch dreams are made of: a dreamy, creamy base, vanilla vodka, sparkling wine for a bit of bubbles, a little fresh orange juice, and a keto-friendly sweetener to keep the sugar down. I’ve even included options to make a dairy free creamsicle cocktail! All of the flavors of a classic adult orange creamsicle with just 8 grams of carbs. What’s not to love?
Just be warned: these drinks pack a real punch. Although these low carb mimosas seem harmless, each cocktail has 4.5 ounces of alcohol. CHEERS!
This recipe for low carb Orange Creamsicle Mimosas is a crowd pleaser, not only because the flavor is spot on for the childhood classic, but because you can easily make ingredient swaps to meet dietary needs. For a dairy free orange creamsicle mimosa, use almond or coconut milk. If you think the orange juice is sweet enough on its own, omit the powdered monkfruit. Vanilla vodka makes a nice compliment to the creamy orange flavor, but if you only have unflavored vodka on hand, that will totally work for this recipe. If you aren’t a fan of vodka, this drink is delicious with just the sparkling wine as well.
Can you drink alcohol on the keto diet?
If you’re living a low carb lifestyle and you’re wondering if you can have cocktails on keto, the answer is … YES. The occasional cocktail is a great way to make sure that you’re not feeling deprived on your low carb lifestyle. The key here is “lifestyle” — if you want this to be a sustainable way of life, the key is finding low carb alternatives that make you feel satisfied. We’ll all have moments where we want to celebrate, whether it’s a milestone occasion or a Sunday morning brunch.
While navigating alcohol on a keto diet can be tricky, it is not impossible. In fact, I wrote a whole low carb guide to alcohol to help you out with this very thing. In the guide, I’ve included a bunch of information about the carbs in different alcoholic beverages along with tons of other helpful information.
