I love cucumber water and homemade limeade. But what if you could combine those two and make a delicious non-alcoholic summer beverage?

This recipe takes your regular limeade to a whole new level because it's packed full of flavour. It's infused with cucumber, fresh mint and ginger. Best of all, it's sugar free and completely keto-friendly!

Whether you struggle with keto-flu or need a healthy sports drink, it's easy to convert this tasty recipe into an electrolyte drink. Simply add some magnesium, potassium and sodium like I did in my Keto Electrolyte Drink!

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.
