Sugar-Free Ginger Lemonade Recipe (Low-Carb, Keto)
Sugar-Free Ginger Lemonade Recipe (Low-Carb, Keto) – simple and refreshing summer drink made with just four ingredients. The perfect healing, guilt-free drink. Serve it at a party or take it by the pool.
When it comes to drinks, plain water is fine with me. But at times I crave something refreshing like this Sugar-Free Ginger Lemonade. It is made with just fresh lemon juice, freshly grated ginger, water and sweetener. I used a low carb sweetener, but if you prefer regular sugar, you ca use it instead. Fill a glass with ice and pour the lemonade over it.
I’ve been drinking a lot of ginger tea lately. The truth is that my keto journey was quite bumpy for the first 4-5 weeks and my stomach wasn’t doing well at first, plus I had very low energy.
This is why I started having homemade ginger tea with lemon. It made me less nauseous and kind of gave me some energy. Things are a lot better now.
Other benefits of lemon-ginger tea/lemonade are that it has an immune boosting, fever reducing and blood sugar regulating properties.
Since the weather has gotten so hot in the last two weeks, I decided to turn my ginger lemon tea into a ginger lemonade. It turned out perfect.
Happy almost Memorial Day!

What kind of sweetener to use for sugar-free lemonade?
- You can use liquid stevia
- You can use powdered Erythritol. Why not regular Erythritol? You can try it, but in some cases it tends to crystalize in drinks like this ginger lemonade.
How do you make sugar-free ginger lemonade?
You need to grate the ginger and juice the lemons. Then place in a pitcher. Add sweetener (I used Swerve) and pour water on top. If the grated ginger makes the drink too strong and bothers you, you can strain the lemonade after one hour.
What kind of ginger to use for this ginger lemonade?
I use freshly grated ginger. I peel the ginger using a spoon (knife would work, too) and then grate it using microplane zester.
- 2 lemons
- 2 tbsp grated ginger
- 4 cups water
- 1/3 cup powdered erythritol or more to taste
- sliced lemon for serving
Juice the lemons and pour the juice in a pitcher. Add the grated ginger. Add the sweetener. Pour water on top and stir. Taste. Add more sweetener if needed. Keep in mind that if you serve the lemonade over ice, it will be diluted.
Fill glasses with ice. Pour ginger lemonade over it. Serve.
The lemonade can be stored in the fridge for 2 days.
Use powdered erythritol to taste. This recipe makes lemonade that is not very sweet.
If you'd like to use stevia extract instead of erythritol, start with 1/2 tsp and add more if desired.
