Wild blackberries are not the easiest to obtain, with all the sharp thorns and spiders that like to set up shop next to the juiciest, biggest berries. However they are so worth it! They are loaded with antioxidants & anti-inflammatory properties and they just plain taste amazing. This spritzer is so easy to make and doesn't require heating or simple syrups. All you need is a blender and a nut milk bag or fine mesh sieve. It can be made the day before and enjoyed the next day also. Blackberries are also naturally low in sugars and net-carbs so all this recipe requires for keto is to substitute your favourite liquid keto sweetener such as monkfruit sweetener or stevia.
