Did you know most store-bought ginger ale doesn’t contain any ginger at all?

Homemade keto ginger ale served in a glass with a wedge of ginger and lime on the rim of the glass.

In fact, it’s loaded with high fructose corn syrup, preservatives and flavoring.

Definitely not a very healthy drink.  That’s why I always suggest making your own ginger ale at home!

What is homemade Keto Ginger Ale?

Fresh ginger is simmered with monkfruit sweetener and water to make a natural ginger syrup.  It is then combined with carbonated water to make a healthy, natural and refreshing drink.

What’s monkfruit erythritol blend and why do you use it to make this ginger ale recipe?

Monkfruit and erythritol is a blended sweetener that has 0 carbs, 0 calories and sugar free.  Some popular brands I use are Lakanto Monkfruit and WholeEarth.

Should I peel the skin of the ginger to make ginger ale?

It’s not necessary to remove the skin of the ginger but if you prefer, you may do so.  It doesn’t affect the taste of the ginger syrup.
