Tips to make amazing lemonade

  • For an extra dose of electrolytes, you can add a pinch of your favorite sea salt to taste.

Keto lemonade FAQs

Is it okay to have lemonade on keto?

Lemons are considered a low carb fruit, and are among the few fruits that are okay to have on keto. Therefore, lemonade is okay to have on keto if the lemonade is made specifically with lemons and a low carb sweetener.

How many freshly squeezed lemons are needed?

To make this particular lemonade recipe, you need 4 medium or 3 large lemons.

What is the best keto sweetener to add to lemonade?

For this recipe swerve was used to sweeten the lemonade. It is a natural sugar replacement that is sweet and delicious with no aftertaste. Plus, it dissolves well and has 0 net carbs so it is very easy to make a truly delicious keto lemonade with swerve. 

However, you can use other keto friendly sweeteners for this lemonade recipe.

It should be noted that not all keto sweeteners are the same, especially when it comes to making a really good keto lemonade recipe. This is so because some keto sweeteners may have a minty or bitter aftertaste which you may not appreciate in your lemonade. 

So, for me, the best keto sweeteners for making lemonade besides swerve are:

  • Liquid stevia
  • Monkfruit

Can this lemonade be made ahead?

Yes, you can make this drink ahead. In fact, it tastes even better made ahead and chilled for a day before consumption.

How to make a large batch of keto lemonade

Interested in making a large batch? Simply double, triple or quadruple your ingredients. The current recipe makes 4 glasses.

So, if for instance you’re looking to make 12 glasses, simply use 10 1/2 cups of water, 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice and 1 cup of granulated swerve. This will make you 12 glasses of lemonade. 

How many net carbs are in this recipe?

There are 2.12 grams of carbs in each serving of this drinks and 0.2 grams of fiber. This means that in every serving of ketogenic lemonade, thee are 1.9 grams of net carbs.
