I could drink this by the gallon, and I have on multiple occasions. A common way to boost your electrolytes on keto is to drink keto lemonade, which is a mixture of water, fresh lemon juice, Himalayan salt, and a keto-friendly sweetener. But, after years on keto, the daily grind of lemonade gets a little old. Let’s spice things up and swap out the plain water for tea! You can use any sort of tea here. I chose a decaffeinated black tea, but you could use rooibos, green, white, or whatever you like.
If you’re in need of digestive healing, add 4 teaspoons of aloe vera; it works nicely in this recipe.
4 cups (950 ml) brewed black tea (decaf or regular), chilled
¼ cup (60 ml) lemon juice
2 teaspoons erythritol, or 6 drops liquid stevia
½ teaspoon finely ground Himalayan salt
Place all the ingredients in a large jug or pitcher that holds at least 34 ounces (1 L). Mix with a large spoon.
STORE IT: Store covered in the fridge for up to 5 days.
