How’s it going friends? I don’t know about you, but here in Montreal, we’ve “endured” a hot couple of days. With the heat, and especially the smothering humidity that comes with it I found myself craving a refreshing, sugar-free drink. That is how this Keto Lemonade came about.
I will never make regular Lemonade again.
I know there are a lot of Keto newbies out there looking for a drink to cure their keto flu. And in the search for a solution a lot of them have stumbled on Keto Lemonade recipes.
I have to tell you that I’ve never made lemonade to cure my keto flu. I make lemonade because it’s awesome.
The electrolytes are just an added bonus.
How to make Keto Lemonade?
When it comes to making good lemonade, there are only 2 rule you need to follow:
- Get the best lemons you can find.
- Make sure your lemons are organic.
The organic part is very important. A good lemonade cannot be made without lemon zest. If you use conventional lemons, you will be adding a healthy amount of pesticides and chemicals to your lemonade.
You don’t want that. Therefore, anytime you are following a recipe that calls for lemon zest, make sure that it comes from organic lemons.
The rest is pretty simple.
Zest & juice your lemons. Add water and sweetener and chill for at least 3-4 hours.
That’s pretty much it.
For serving I have two suggestions. I personally prefer serving my lemonade over some frozen berries (raspberries or strawberries are my favorites). Over time, the berries slowly infuse your lemonade and add a gentle fruity flavor to it. You can also drop a few frozen berries in your lemonade and let it gently infuse for a few hours in your fridge.
My wife’s favorite version is more of a classic. She like to infuse her lemonade with a few mint stalks. It’s pretty good!
If you like neither, you can drink it as is. Nothing wrong with that at all. Enjoy!

- Zest and juice your lemons onto a large pitcher. Add Truvia, warm water and cream of tartar. Using a whisk, mix until everything is fully incorporated. Refrigerate for 2 hours and serve.
