This lemonade recipe uses a simple syrup made fro monk fruit whiches makes it perfect for diabetics and the keto diet.



  • 1.5 cups monk fruit sweetener
  • 4.5 cups filtered water
  • 1.5 cups fresh lemon juice about 10 lemons
  • Fresh mint & blueberries optional


  1. Add the monk fruit and 1.5 cups of water to a small pot. Cook over medium heat until the sweetener is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Turn heat off pot and let cool to room temperature or add some ice if you want to cool it quickly.

  2. Meanwhile, juice 1.5 cups of lemon juice in a bowl or pitcher add add 3 cups of water to it. Add 1 cup of the simple syrup and check for seasoning. I find this is the perfect balance, but if you want it sweeter add the remaining 1/2 cup of simple syrup. To serve, muddle or smash some blueberries and mint in the bottom of a glass using a fork, pour in some ice, and top with sugar free lemonade. Enjoy!
