Is it okay to have lemonade on keto?

Yes. Lemonade made specially with lemons and some low carb sweeteners are okay to have on the keto diet. Lemons, which are considered a low carb fruit, are among the few fruits that are okay to have on the keto diet so there is no need to forgo your low carb lemonade drink.

 

What is the best keto sweetener to add to lemonade?

We’ve already established that making lemonade is super easy, and coming up with a lemonade recipe that is low is carbs is even easier.

It’s simply done by using a keto sweetener along with lemon juice and a few other optional ingredients.

However, not all keto sweeteners are the same, especially when it comes to making ketogenic lemonade recipes. For example, may have a minty or bitter aftertaste which you may not appreciate in your lemonade. 

So what sweetener can you choose? In the recipe I used granulated swerve for the best results. It is a natural sugar replacement that is sweet and delicious with no aftertaste. Plus, it dissolves well and has 0 net carbs which is a plus for me. 

So, whether you’re following the keto diet, or you just want a refreshing drink that isn’t filled with sugar, this easy sugar free lemonade recipe will satisfy that sweet tooth without spiking insulin in the blood.

 

Tips to make amazing lemonade:
