Have you had the Diet Lemonade from ChickFilA? And do you like it? I have always hated the aftertaste. Many people love their regular lemonade, but I have often found that it is too sweet for me.

Is lemonade keto? Most store-bought is not. Is sugar-free bad for you? If it has artificial sweetners, then maybe. For a while artificial sweeteners were the craze, but now the push is for organic and natural ingredients.

The best cheap way to make this recipe is to pick up a bag of lemons from Costco.

How to Make Keto Lemonade

  1. Squeeze the juice of fresh lemons using a lemon squeezer or a lemon juicer until you have 2 cups of juice.
  2. Place a saucepan on medium high heat and add 2 cups of water and 2 cups of sweetener to create a simple syrup.
  3. Stir continuously until the mixture is clear. It will appear cloudy at first.
  4. Add the simple syrup and lemon juice to a pitcher along with additional water to taste.

Simple Syrup

This recipe includes instructions on how to make simple syrup from a combination of water and sweetener that you heat on the stove. You can save a little time and work by using this monkfruit simple syrup from Lakanto.

Which Sweetener to Use

You can sweeten lemonade naturally by using an organic sweetener like monkfruit. This will keep the recipe refined sugar-free.

Recipe Tips

  • The number of lemons you will need will vary based on the size of the lemons you use and how much juice you can get from each. Typically, I use 8-10 lemons.
  • The best cheap way to make this recipe is to pick up a bag of lemons from Costco. A bag is usually $6.
  • If you are having trouble juicing the lemons, place them in the microwave for 15-20 seconds. This will help soften them up.
  • Adjust this recipe to suit your taste and needs. If you like really sweet lemonade, add more sweetener.
  • You can heat the simple syrup in the microwave if you wish. Heat it until the mixture turns clear, timing will vary.
  • You can save a little time and work by using this monkfruit simple syrup from Lakanto instead of making your own.
  • You can make strawberry lemonade using 2 cups of fresh puréed strawberries.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups sweetener
  • additional water to adjust to taste I added 5 cups

Instructions

  • Juice the lemons using a lemon squeezer or lemon juicer.
  • Add the lemon juice to a pitcher. I used a strainer when adding it to a pitcher because there were parts of the flesh from juicing.
  • Pour 2 cups of water into a pan on medium-high heat. Add in the sweetener and stir.
  • This will create a simple syrup. Continue to stir until the mixture is clear.
  • Remove from the heat and add it to the pitcher with the lemon juice. Stir and add additional water to taste/meet your lemonade preference.

can you just use real lemon in the bottle instead of squeezing all those expensive lemons? It only takes one 16 oz. bottle, for 2 cups of lemons. I know it isnt as healthy as fresh lemon W/O the chemicals, buts its a lot cheaper. And I can make it more offend. what do you think?😁

No. $2 for lemons isn’t expensive. If it is for you, do what you want.

This was such a delicious, refreshing lemonade! I also used it as a low-carb mixer with a few shots of vodka and definitely recommend! I’m looking forward to making it many more times this summer.
