Keto Lemon Recipes
Make way for the tart to sweet low-carb lemon-infused recipes. As a major lemon aficionado, the bright flavor of this citrus is indispensable to many of my recipes.
If you are anything like me, you’re going to LOVE these recipes too!
It does not matter if you are using lemon juice, lemon zest, lemon extract or all three, lemon-based keto recipes can and should be enjoyed while doing a ketogenic diet.
Lemon imparts so much flavor in keto recipes, frankly, I feel it elevates whatever you choose to add it to.
Can You Have Lemons On Keto?
If you are wondering if you can have lemons on keto the answer is yes. This is especially the case since most keto lemon-based recipes use only a small quantity.
Remember you are not having a concentrated amount of lemon juice since a small amount goes a long way flavor-wise. Although lemons do have carbs the amount is minimal.
In fact, there is 1 gram of carbohydrates in a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice, and most of the recipes listed here use anywhere from one tablespoon to 1/4 cup, and the number of carbs is spread out among the entire recipe.
So lemon lovers doing keto rejoice! You can have your lemon-flavored recipes and not have to worry about being kicked out of ketosis.
Best Sugar-Substitutes For Sugar-Free Lemon Recipes
When it’s a sweet-based keto lemon recipe you’ll need to choose your best sweetener option. My top choice is a monk fruit/erythritol blend. My personal favorite is Lakanto’s brand. But you can also use Swerve an erythritol sugar substitute.
You could also use the stevia and erythritol-based brand Pyure for most of my baked goods. However, if using Pyure you will want to use half the amount called for in this recipe since it’s a much sweeter choice. But if stevia is your preferred choice then feel free to use the Pyure brand.

Join Our Jesus And Keto Movement
Randy and I came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective. As believers, we live our lives supported by God’s grace.
So when the Holy Spirit led us to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.
To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s prompting to we got on the path to real transformation.
Knowing firsthand the benefits of this decision we have created a closed Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives. We invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.
