Sugar Free Lemonade

I have been making this luscious drink for sometime now.
My doctor has always urged me to drink a lot of lemon water as it is a cleanser.
Alas, I am just not very good at drinking my allotted amount of water in a day...until now!
I am sort of a sweet tooth and this just has me craving lemon water...it tastes more like lemonade.
Even the kids ask for it and we each drink at least two glasses a day.

Sugar Free Lemonade

2 tbs. lemon juice
stevia to taste
1 1/2 cups water

Put lemon juice and stevia in the glass, then add water.
Enjoy!


Hope you find time to enjoy this sweet little drink this summer.
It is so refreshing :).

Julia - that looks very refreshing for this hot weather! Do you have a favorite brand of stevia? I've tried a few different ones that haven't seemed to combine nicely with lemon in my hot lemon and ginger tea.

Hi Heather! I like NuNaturals Stevia in the powdered form. The liquid is also nice. So far, That is my favorite brand to use.

I am not a big lemonade fan. But tried it with tea added. Loved it. I am no longer going to use instant tea. My husband doesn't like sugar or lemon in his tea so I use the instant. This is so fast and easy . I can make it any time.

I have never tried Stevia...but I was thinking of growing it...are you? and I wonder how this would taste with honey!

I'm going to try it. I often just squeeze & drop lemon wedges in my icy water. I'll try the stevia. Thanks!

This is a lovely idea Julia-I have plenty of fresh lemons but will need to buy the stevia

Hope you all have a lovely weekend
