Everybody knows how to make traditional lemonade from fresh lemons, water, sweetener and ice. But how about trying something different? Yesterday, I made a perfect summer berry lemonade that was almost zero-carb and still had an amazing taste using just natural ingredients — no artificial sweeteners and no colourings.

The simple rule is to use frozen berries. Using fresh berries wouldn't release as much juice and unless you squeeze them, your lemonade would taste dull. Try this simple way to save extra carbs and great even for those that are calorie-conscious! :-)

Instructions

  1. I used a mixture of frozen berries: wild blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, sour cherries and currants. You can use any berries you want, the carb count will be very similar.

  2. Place everything into a large bottle and fill it with water. Add lime juice and optionally lime or lemon slices. Note that if you are using lime, peel the rind to avoid a bitter aftertaste in your lemonade. Sugar-Free Summer Iced Berry Limeade
  3. Add 15-20 drops of stevia or more if you wish and leave for 15 minutes or best results leave in the fridge overnight. Pour into a serving glass, top with ice and enjoy!
    Tip: You can refill the bottle and repeat the steps 2-3 times and make more lemonade as long as there is some flavour left! Sugar-Free Summer Iced Berry Limeade

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Hi Martina, I'm writing to thank you for this wonderful recipe.

I figured out lemon doesn't give it any bitter aftertaste like lime does. If I make a single serving, I can use the lime because I know it won't get bitter before I finish it. When I make it in advance and keep it in the fridge, I use the lemon - no aftertaste 😊
