This Hot Buttered Rum recipe will keep your carbs count in check as well as warm you from the inside out…
This recipe serves six people but you can adjust it accordingly in the recipe card. Or you can just make the butter mixture and store it in a jar for a few days.
Hot buttered rum is traditionally a seasonal drink but it’s delicious all winter long. We live in the high Rocky Mountains so warm drinks are sort of a “thing” here.
This mixture is also excellent in coffee for a special low carb treat. This will also help you to reach your macros for the day.
Indulging while on a low carb diet…
So this recipe is traditionally chock full of sugar and would never even be considered by someone who’s living the low carb lifestyle. But I have discovered that with a few tweaks you can replicate just about any recipe out there.
I gave up drinking alcohol some time ago but Thom likes to indulge every once in a while. He seeks out new and exciting versions of his favorite drinks and buttered rum is definitely one of them.
I think it’s important to not feel like you are missing out when you are heading down a new healthier lifestyle path.
Human nature dictates that we like to make choices. It’s ingrained in us by nature and nurture. If our choices are taken away, it’s only natural to become resentful. If you become resentful on the Keto Diet you are much more likely to start sliding back into old habits “just for today” and that tuns into a week, a month or a year.
I do think it’s important to indulge every once in a while while you are on the Keto Diet. This provides some freedom of choice and it also reminds us how much better we feel when we become fat burners.
I ended up eating a lot of carbs on Thanksgiving and I paid for it. My skin was broken out within 48 hours and I had kind of a carb hangover.
I don’t regret eating pumpkin pie but I realize how much better I feel after it’s all been burned back out of my system.
The real trick is knowing when to splurge. Pumpkin pie is my favorite pie ever. And, while I do have a recipe for Keto Pumpkin pie, I wasn’t assigned pies at our family get together. So instead of being a jerk and fussing about it, I happily ate my high carb pumpkin pie to top of a delicious Thanksgiving dinner.
It’s okay to splurge once in a while and join in the festivities…
But, for hot buttered rum…this is an easy alternative to the syrupy sweet, sugar laden traditional recipe.
