Finally, you can enjoy lemonade without the huge quantities of sugar that make it drinkable! I have diabetes and have not been able to enjoy a refreshing glass of fresh lemonade for years. Now I can drink as much as I want without going into the “danger zone.”
Lemonade Mit Out Sugar
- 3 to 4 lemons
- 1 quart water (I like to use bottled sparking water)
- 1/2 tsp liquid Stevia extract (add more to taste)
- Squeeze the lemons.
- Add water or sparkling water.
- Add liquid Stevia extract. Taste and add more Stevia to taste.
- Garnish with a thin slice of lemon or a mint sprig.
If you have a cheap source of lemons (your own, or a neighbor’s lemon tree) you will want to check out the SodaStream Home Soda Maker. It will saves you loads of money and is a nice thing to do for the environment!
You can easily hand squeeze your lemons if making this recipe occasionally. If you love fresh squeezed orange, lemon or grapefruit juices here is one of my favorite easy to use gadgets . . . Black and Decker’s Citrus Juicer.
If you are on a Keto Diet or are strictly watching your carbs … lemon, lime or orange juice is NOT a good choice. I leave the juice for the kids, but both my wife and I use these fabulous fruit flavors from the line up of True Citrus products. True Lemon, True Lime and True Grapefruit are our favorites and are totally sugar and carb free. We add Stevia as a sweetener.
