Frozen keto lemonade is just what you need to stay deliciously hydrated and refreshed. With just 3g of net carbs and a big lemon-y dose of vitamin C, this “sunshine in a cup” is not only a tasty treat, but it helps support a low-carb lifestyle as well. Freshly-squeezed organic lemon juice that has been lightly sweetened with natural birch xylitol and stevia, then blended with fragrant thyme, added fats for satiety and creaminess, and ice make for a functional yet beautiful beverage. A definite upgrade from your childhood corner store slushies.

These keto slushies are easy to make — you just blitz everything up in a blender until it resembles fine snow and serve, with or without a spoon. Soon you’ll be enjoying this dreamy tart concoction and reminiscing about blissful childhood summers spent playing outside in the sunshine enjoying slushies.

Keto Lemonade Slushies RecipeStart to Finish: 5 minutes


  • 3 organic lemons, juiced (approximately 4 ounces of lemon juice)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons birch xylitol
  • 10-15 drops liquid lemon stevia (or use plain stevia and lemon zest, if you don’t have lemon stevia)
  • 1-2 teaspoons Brain Octane Oil or unflavored liquid coconut oil
  • 2 ounces unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 sprig fresh organic thyme, leaves only (plus more for garnish)
  • Ice


  1. Place all of the ingredients except the ice in a blender and blend for 10-15 seconds until well-blended.
  2. Add one handful of ice and blend well. Add more ice cubes, 1-2 at a time if needed in order to reach desired consistency. Finished result should be like fine snow that stays gently packed together but is just starting to melt.
  3. Taste for sweetness and add more no-sugar sweetener of your choice (such as xylitol or stevia) if desired.
  4. Pour into two serving cups, garnish each with a sprig of fresh thyme and a lemon wheel, and serve.

Serves: 2 (approximately 6-7 ounces per serving)
