Make any day special with this low-carb sparkling raspberry limeade mocktail. It's a low-calorie sweet fruity drink to help you make every moment sparkle.
Why you'll love it
Now that the weather has finally warmed up, it's great to come home from work and grab an ice-cold drink to enjoy out on the deck.
I rarely drink alcohol, but I do love fruity cocktail drinks. Unfortunately, regular ones are loaded with sugar.
Since I'm not much of a drinker, a mocktail is more my style. And, this is a beverage that I can share with the kids over the summer.
It's really quick and easy to whip up this fruity low carb drink. I just dumped a half cup of frozen raspberries, a half cup of crushed ice, the juice of one lime, and a can of Dasani Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade into my blender.
Usually, this is made with lime juice and sugar, but I used healthy ingredients that have the same flavor as the refreshing drinks you get when you are on a road trip.
There are just a few easy ingredients in this refreshing beverage. In fact, you might be shocked at how easy it is to make a sparkling limeade.
Sparkling raspberry lemonade
Use your favorite type of pre-made sparkling raspberry lemonade. Just make sure you are careful with how much sugar it has.
Fresh lime juice
It's best to squeeze fresh lime juice from a few tart limes. I only used about two tablespoons, which is the juice from one lime.
Frozen raspberries will make this have the best consistency, but fresh raspberries can also be used.
Sweeten your low-carb sparkling raspberry limeade with some vanilla Stevia drops.
Of course, you will need ice in order for this to be a frozen consistency.
Please note: Check out the recipe card at the bottom for a full list of ingredients used to make this low-carb recipe.
- Strain the drink first. Use a fine-mesh strainer if you don't want raspberry seeds in your drink.
- Use a high-powered blender. This will crush the ice better.
- Use small ice cubes. You could use whole ice cubes, but my blender doesn't chop ice very well, so I like to use smaller pieces of ice.
It takes less than a minute to prepare this tasty low-carb sparkling raspberry limeade mocktail. And, the blender does most of the work. You will have to squeeze the juice out of the limes, but I have a handheld juicer that does it quickly.

????️ Serving suggestions

There are a few different ways you can make this sparkling limeade. First, you can make it a sparkling lemonade. Just use fresh-squeeze lemon juice instead of lime juice.

Even with the fresh fruit, this delicious mocktail drink has less than 2 grams of sugar. So it's a perfect sweet treat to enjoy on your low-carb diet. And, the added fizz really seems to help satisfy thirst on a hot day.
Limeades are fun drinks because raspberries and lime go with so many different types of alcohol. I think some flavored vodka, plain vodka, or even gin would be the best options to add to this drink.
If you want to omit the raspberries, you can just make a sparkling lime soda. Simply add some fresh-squeezed lime juice, salt, and sparkling water. If you want it to be sweeter, add a little bit of liquid sweetener.
Seltzer water has hydrating qualities that can help promote weight loss. It's also a fantastic way to avoid sugary sodas that might derail your weight loss goals.
