Homemade Lemonade

Homemade Lemonade

Lemonade is so refreshing… but store-bought varieties have more sugar in them than coke! Making your own lemonade is so easy, and significantly healthier. I used stevia, making my homemade lemonade sugar-free, with only 9 calories per glass and 1g sugar, as opposed to store-bought which contains 120 calories and a whopping 28g sugar! Any granulated or liquid sweetener that you prefer will work with this recipe!


  • 1 cup lemon juice freshly squeezed (about 4-6 lemons, depending on size)
  • 1/2 cup sweetener
  • 5 cups water divided
  • Procedure

  • Bring 1 cup of water to a light boil. Stir in your sweetener and mix until it’s dissolved. Remove from heat.
  • Combine sweetened water with remaining cold water and lemon juice. Stir.
  • Refrigerate for a few hours and serve cold over ice!
