During a hot summer day, there’s nothing quite as refreshing as a cool glass of lemonade. Relax and recharge with this delicious, health-infused paleo and keto-friendly Fizzy Ginger Lemonade.
A healthy powerhouse.
With cold and flu season right around the corner, filling your body with the nutrients of ginger and lemon is always a good idea.
The anti-inflammatory benefits of ginger – which you’ve probably heard about – are said to rival those of NSAIDs, but I’m also excited about gingerol, the bioactive substance in fresh ginger which helps to lower the risk of infections. Talk about killing two birds with one stone! (That’s kinda morbid, sorry…)
And how about those healthy little lemons, boosting your immune system with all their vitamin C and filling your body with antioxidants? They’re always a good addition to your diet!
Keeping Your Cool
The genius behind this recipe is my friend Jessica’s eBook Keeping Your Cool. It’s full of delicious, easy to make drinks. There’s no refined sugar or weird ingredients – only real food goodness! All the shakes, slushies, and smoothies are perfectly mouthwatering during any season. This Fizzy Ginger Lemonade is a refreshing twist on a southern favorite. I love the freshness and pop! the ginger adds.

Even though I could down a whole batch of this delicious drink myself, I really do love making treats that my family enjoys, as well. My 4-year old son got ahold of a cup as I was shooting pictures. Since the ginger gives the lemonade a little kick, so I was interested to see what he thought about it…
“It’s spicy…” I warned him, as he took a sip. “Do you like it?”
“Of course!” he happily replied as he continued to chug. “It’s SO good!”
Side Note: If you’re worried by my motherly word of warning, this lemonade is not really spicy. “Spicy” is what my kids call anything with a hint of life. Haha! So when you read ‘spicy’ just think, ‘the opposite of sweet.’ 😉
If you’re a real foodie, which you probably are if you’re still reading, I know you’ll love this Fizzy Ginger Lemonade. 😉

This sounds like a great recovery drink as I’m still dealing with last week’s gluten exposure! Now where to get raw ginger…
Sorry you’re still dealing with that! Hopefully you can make this and find some relief.
Love to drink lemonade, but I’ve never tried adding ginger into the mix. Sounds like a great combination of flavors.
It’s one of my favorite flavor combos, Erlene! I hope you enjoy it if you give it a try. 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by!
This recipe sounds absolutely perfect! I can’t wait to try it. I’ve been buying real ginger gingerale for our family’s tummy aches, and putting fresh ginger in nearly every recipe … But this sounds like an easy, low sugar and less expensive way of getting those ginger benefits! Thank you!
Glad to share, Jules! I hope your family likes it! I crave it when my tummy hurts.
Sounds yummy. I laughed when I read your motherly warning about “spicy” 🙂 It’s interesting how differently kids and adults react to stronger flavors…
Haha! Yeah, their descriptions can be pretty entertaining sometimes. My oldest used to call anything crumbly “grumpy.” 🙂
This looks delightful and refreshing!
Thanks, Heather! It’s definitely both. 😉
I’m not a huge ginger fan, but I think with the fizz and lemon…I could handle it 😉 Yum!
Haha. 😉 My husband’s the same way.
I love lemon and fresh ginger together and have never thought to add it to seltzer. Looks super refreshing. Thank you for sharing at the Recipe Swap.
It’s very refreshing! 🙂 Glad to share, Kathy!

I have a bunch of lemons in my fridge. I am going to have to try this!
I hope you enjoy it, Rachel! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
Nothing more refreshing than this combo of fresh lemon & ginger. Also a great home-made remedy, it helped through stomach flus and gluten exposure several times. 🙂
You’re so right, Nori! It’s a great combo for tummy issues! Tasty and helpful. 😉
Yummy! I love anything with lemon or ginger and here they are mixed together!

Sounds like a tasty thirst quencher! Love the idea of adding ginger. Thanks for sharing! Blessings, Janet
Glad to share, Janet!
This sounds amazing! I love lemon anything but I’m not a fan of how sweet lemonade is. This is a great other option and the combo of ginger and lemon is great for your skin and tummy. Thanks for linking up with FTAF!
I’m the same way, Melissa. Love lemon, but not sugar. :p Thanks so much for stopping by!
This sounds so refreshing and summery, I love fresh lemonade. #freefromfridays

Question for you…I was reading the directions for Kefir water…instead of cane sugar…will it work the same with coconut sugar?
Coconut sugar is too rich for kefir grains. If you want to use it, only use a little bit in combination with cane sugar. If you’re wanting to use a less processed product, you can use turbinado, raw sugar, rapadura, or sucanat. Just know that these will change the flavor of your water kefir. Turbinado and raw sugar produce a very mild flavor, and rapadura and sucanat produce a very strong flavor.
