I love lemonade! However my son’s body doesn’t love the sugar that comes along with it. So we make refreshing sugar free lemonade from home to enjoy on these nice spring days by the pool!
- 1 1/4 cups lemon juice
- 1 cup sugar substitute
- 7-8 cups water
So I squeezed enough lemons to make 1 1/4 cups, but I’m sure you could use the kind out of the container and it would work just fine too.
Then I mixed the cup of Splenda with a cup of water and heated it up on the stove until it dissolved.
Next came mixing the syrupy liquid with the lemon juice and adding water to taste. I would add 7 cups of water and taste it, then add more if you want.
Make sure you remove the seeds from the juice before mixing it with the syrup mixture. Also check whatever sugar substitute you are using, because the ratios may be different.
Yes I drink my fresh squeezed lemonade out of old honey mason jars! Doesn’t everyone? I added a few strawberries from our strawberry plants as garnish as well, they just make everything seem prettier!
The best thing about this lemonade is my son approves! He is a picky eater (and drinker) and he doesn’t like sour things. But this lemonade is the perfect amount of sweet with a hint of sour. If you make it, let me know what you think! Also if you have a sugar substitute that you prefer, with a low glycemic index, share that as well! We are always looking for healthier ways to cook for our son.
