Tips for making the best keto apple cider:
- If you like your cider a little on the sweeter side, feel free to add a few more tablespoons of your favorite keto sweetener such as Swerve or Lakanto Golden Monkfruit Sweetener.
- Want to turn this cider into an adult beverage? Feel free to add in your favorite keto-friendly alcohol for a cider with a little kick to it!
- Make a large batch so you’ll have extra to freeze and then you’ll have cider on hand when you’re craving it.
