Low Carb Strawberry Lemonade Recipe

One of my favorite drinks to order as a kid was strawberry lemonade. I loved the sweetness mixed with the tartness of the lemon. It’s easy to make a sugar-free, keto strawberry lemonade. Both lemon and strawberries are allowed on the keto diet as they are lower in carbs. For sweetness, you can add your favorite keto replacement for sugar.

This keto lemonade was made for front porch sipping on a hot summer day.

Are Lemons Allowed on the Keto Diet?

Yes, you can have lemons on the keto diet. I generally use a squirt of lemon juice while cooking to add a little bit of acidity to a recipe. Lemons only have 3.4 grams net carbs in one lemon, so you can have them if you are keto.

Are Strawberries Keto?

Yes, strawberries are keto! Strawberries is one of the fruits that is allowed on the keto diet because they are naturally low in sugar and low in carbs. Other berries you could try in this keto lemonade recipe are raspberries and blackberries.

How Many Carbs are in Strawberries?

Since strawberries are a keto approved fruit, they don’t have very many carbohydrates in them compared to other fruits. Strawberries have 8.7 net carbs per cup of chopped berries. This recipe calls for about 2 cups of berries for the entire pitcher of keto strawberry lemonade, so you aren’t getting that many carbs per serving from the berries.

Keto Sweeteners for Sugar Free Lemonade

The strawberries do contribute to some sweetness in this recipe. You could opt for no sweetener in this strawberry lemonade recipe if you wanted a less sweet and more tart verison.

But if you are like me and need a little sweet in your life without the sugar, then you can add a sugar-free keto sweetener. In this iced beverage recipe, I recommend using a powdered keto sweetener. It dissolves better than granulated sweetener. You can use monkfruit, erythritol, allulose or stevia.

Popular keto sweeteners like Lakanto and Swerve are the most commonly used keto sugar replacers out there. They measure cup for cup like sugar; except the Lakanto powdered monkfruit is a 2:1 ratio with sugar so you will only need to add half the amount of recommended sweetener. Stevia and allulose you may have to add in a little at a time to get your desired level of sweetness in this keto lemonade recipe.
