You will never want to drink store-bought, sugary lemonade again after trying this refreshing, keto-friendly, and healthy low-carb pink lemonade! So good!
My kids love pink lemonade and I hate that they love it. Well, until now! Store-bought pink lemonade is not only loaded with sugar, but also artificial dyes. Yikes! And unfortunately, it does taste good, especially on a hot summer day.
But with this recipe, my kids can get enjoy a refreshing drink, load up on vitamin C, and I don’t need to worry about their blood glucose levels or chemicals entering their bodies. This pink-lemonade has no added sugar and gets it beautiful color from cranberry juice. All natural, low-carb, and healthy! That’s what a mother wants!
You only need 3 ingredients and some water, and you and your family can enjoy this summer treat in no time!
This is how you do it!
Lemons. Lemons, of course, are a must for lemonade. Don’t use the bottled lemon juice, but squeeze your own. You will need about 6 or so to squeeze out 1 cup of juice. All you need is a lemon squeezer, like this manual metal one.
Cranberry juice. Next, we will add 1/2 cup of cranberry juice. You should be able to find unsweetened cranberry juice in your supermarket’s juice aisle or in the healthy food section. Cranberry juice does contain some natural sugar, but since we are only using a small amount, each serving of this pink lemonade only has 2 grams of sugar. The cranberry juice is not only responsible for the beautiful pink color of our homemade lemonade, but will also add some flavor, and lots of vitamins and antioxidants.
Stevia. Liquid stevia works best for this drink. You will only need 1 1/2 tablespoons to sweetened the whole batch. If you don’t have stevia, you could also try powdered erythritol. Just make sure to whisk it well if you use a powdered sweetener.
Water. Use filtered water if possible. The chlorine in tap water affects the taste, so the more you can filter out the better. Store-bought water works, too. It you like it fizzy, try sparkling water!
