Healthy Homemade Ginger Ale (Sugar Free)

by | Jul 5, 2021

Homemade Ginger Ale is a healthy & refreshing beverage made with fresh ginger root, lemon or lime, honey and carbonated water. This sugar free cold drink is perfect for the warmer months, when you’re craving something refreshing! AIP, paleo, keto, low-carb & plant-based.

DID YOU KNOW? Ginger is Mother Nature’s medicine especially when it comes to supporting digestive health.

This powerful root can help prevent problems like dyspepsia, a common condition of weakened digestion characterized by symptoms like pain, heartburn, fullness and discomfort.

Ginger relaxes the smooth muscle in your gut lining and helps food move along throughout the system — a major reason why ginger helps people who are bloated, constipated and have other gastrointestinal disorders.

What makes this homemade ginger ale recipe so great:

  • It’s not only refreshing, but super healthy too! Ginger contains antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory + gut supportive properties.
  • It’s delicious with either lemon or lime, so feel free to switch up the flavour each time you make it.
  • Believe it or not, it tastes great unsweetened, so if you’re following a certain diet or just prefer an unsweetened beverage, you’re in luck!
  • Feel free to use club soda, carbonated water or sparkling mineral water–they all work.
  • Garnish with sliced lemon, lime or mint leaves for a pretty drink that’s extra flavourful.
  • You’ll end up with enough ginger liquid to make approx. 10 ginger ales, so you can easily create this refreshing drink throughout the week without grating and boiling ginger each time!
  • You can also use the leftover ginger liquid to make other beverages like Lemon Ginger Tea and this creative Kombucha “Mulegarita” cocktail. Or make a fun & healthy snack like this Honey Lemon Ginger Jello.
