Healthy Frosted Lemonade Recipe
I have never been to Chick-Fil-A and I am not about to start going now, so I’ve never actually had the original. But there are so many recipes for homemade frosted lemonade recipes and they look so refreshing.
Upon closer inspection, however, I was horrified to see the ingredients. A full can of lemonade concentrate and 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream for a recipe that only makes 2 servings.
That’s a ridiculous amount of sugar! So it was time to do a little experimenting. I wanted to make it just as easy and just as delicious, but with a fraction of the carbs.
How to make keto frosted lemonade
Frosted lemonade typically takes store-bought ice cream. And there are now many wonderful keto ice cream brands on the market now.
So you could easily use one of those. But you could also try my little hack, which will save you money and lower the carb count. It’s a trick I’ve used before in my Easy Keto Root Beer Floats.
Here’s how it works:
- Whip some heavy whipping cream with sweetener and vanilla.
- Dollop onto a waxed paper lined cookie sheet. Freeze until firm.
- Add to a blender, then add fresh strawberries and lemon juice.
- Blend until smooth.
- Add some additional ice and water to thin it. Blend again.
Voila! Keto frosted lemonade.
Frequently Asked Questions
You can do that if you like, and I recommend at least ¼ cup per glass of lemonade. However, my version saves you money and it also reduced the carb count significantly.
You bet! Coconut whipped cream would work just as well in this recipe.
I don’t recommend it, as the ice melts and it thins out as it sits. If you don’t need 4 servings, you can make just enough for one or two at a time. The whipped cream dollops can be frozen for several weeks.
Absolutely! Raspberries would be delicious, as would plain lemonade. Blueberries might be good too, just keep in mind that they have a higher carb count.
