  • Combine all ingredients. 
  • Stir until completely combined and enjoy!


I like my lemonade quite tart and use 2/3 C of Bocha Sweet in this recipe when I make it for myself. If you don't have much of a sweet tooth, try using 2/3 of a cup. You can always add a little more if needed 🙂
Tip: Jazz up the flavor with a few drops of Young Living Lemon Vitality Essential Oil

The Perfect Keto Lemonade

The key to creating the perfect keto friendly lemonade was in finding a natural alternative to sugar without any weird aftertaste.

The solution….?

Bocha Sweet.

Bocha Sweet is a superfood alternative to sugar. It's made from the Kabocha Pumpkin which is predominately grown in Asia. This pumpkin has a high pentose concentration which is where the sweet taste comes from!

What does this mean to you?

You can enjoy great tasting desserts made with Bocha Sweet and feel like you're eating sugar.

Even Better…

You're doing something good for your body! We all know we should be eating less sugar. This is a great way to accomplish that goal without sacrificing flavor or personal satisfaction.

This stuff is my favorite Keto Sweet-Tooth Hack because it's not only a natural product–but it has whole body health benefits and supports healthy blood sugar levels. Even for people NOT on a Keto diet!


What Substitutions Will Work?

Keto Sweetener Substitutions

If you haven't already tried Bocha Sweet, I highly recommend you do.

It's a superfood alternative sweetener made from a Japanese pumpkin called the Kabocha pumpkin.

Most alternative sweeteners will work in this recipe. You can use Monk Fruit Sweetener, Xylitol or a blend like Swerve.

I have not tested this recipe using liquid stevia because I'm not confident of the results without the bulk of some kind of granulated sugar substitute.

I only refer you to products and brands that I have used in the past or are currently using and that I like the quality of. In some cases, products are discontinued and I find a substitution. This is usually only for kitchen gadgets but sometimes companies stop making ingredients too!

    Lol, when Brody tasted it at HyVee last week, he said it had no taste. Then he asked for more and said he really liked it 🙂
