Are Lemons Keto Approved?

Freshly Squeezed Lemons vs Concentrated Lemon Juice

To make sugar-free lemonade popsicles you can use freshly squeezed lemon juice from whole lemons or you can use concentrated lemon juice. Obviously the freshly squeezed lemon juice may have that delicious homemade flavor and it may be a tad more flavorful too. But the concentrated lemon juice works well and makes this recipe for keto lemonade popsicles come together even faster.

How to Make Sugar-Free Lemonade

To make your life easier, I have a whole recipe on the website about how to make sugar-free lemonade. This is the best keto lemonade recipe I have tried. It uses freshly squeezed lemon juice.

If you don’t want to click over to that recipe you can also follow the the simple instructions of juicing your lemons and straining out the pulp (or you can use lemon juice concentrate if you want). Then adding a keto sweetener of your choice. And don’t forget the pinch of salt. It helps bring out the natural flavors of the lemon and sweetness of the sweetener.

Favorite Popsicle Mold

Any popsicle mold you have or have access to will work for making lemonade popsicles. You could even use dixie cups if you don’t have a popsicle maker. The mold that I typically use is this popsicle mold. It comes with some popsicle sticks but you may have to purchase more if you run out.

Another popsicle mold that I like is this silcone ice pop mold. It keeps the popsicles flat when freezing will hold the popsicle sticks in stick in snuggly so they don’t slip out.

A pro tip to keep you popsicle stick from floating up or moving to the side is to soak them in water for about 30 minutes before you insert them into the sugar-free lemonade. This will give them some weight so they sink to the bottom.

Keto Sweeteners for Sugar Free Lemonade Popsicles

When I make sugar-free lemonade, I prefer to use confectioners Swerve. This is a powdered form of keto sweetener. The main sweetener ingredient is erythritol. I prefer the powdered form over the gradulated because most alternative sweeteners to sugar don’t dissolve well in their granulated form. My favorite is Confectioners Swerve. It measures pretty much cup for cup with standard sugar; although, most people on the keto diet still find this conversion to be a little too sweet, so you could adjust the erythritol to your desired level of sweetness.

Other sweeteners you can use to make keto lemonade popsicles are powdered monkfruit or add liquid stevia. The powdered monkfruit I prefer is by Lakanto. There blend is 2x as concentrated as regular sugar so you will need to add less in this lemonade pop recipe. I would only add a 1/4 cup if using Lakanto Powdered Monkfruit.
