Tips

** or 4 packets Truvia(R) natural sweetener.

Note: 1 large lemon yields about 4 tablespoons juice; best if squeezed at room temperature.

Refrigerated 100% lemon juice from concentrate may be substituted for fresh squeezed lemon juice for great lemon flavor with a little less tartness.

Variations:

Use chilled club soda instead of water to make sparkling lemonade.

*This lemonade has 5 calories and 1 gram of sugar (from the lemon juice) per serving compared to 120 calories and 29 grams of sugar per serving in sugar-sweetened lemonade.

Just really hard to beat a tasty glass of freshly-squeezed lemonade (any time of the year) with only 5 calories. This is so easy that it makes no sense to me to use frozen lemonade concentrate which is loaded with sugar. One lemon gives you 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice which yields two servings. I always put my lemons in the microwave and heat on high for 20 seconds which maximizes the juice. I used only 1 Tbsp of Truvia and it was plenty sweet for us. I recently starting cooking with Truvia and I really like the fact that you get no aftertaste as you do with some other artificial sweeteners. Read More

This was a good recipe to use trying stevia instead of sugar but it was not lemony or sweet enough although we drank the whole pitcher. (I did not have any Truvia because I found it not to be sweet enough when using it previously so I substituted Stevia in the Raw.) When making a second pitcher I took the zest off one lemon and added it to some stevia to enhance the flavor. Then I used a full cup of the lemon-infused stevia dissolving it in a cup of warm water before adding the lemon juice and cold water. First taste is more to our liking. Read More

I tried this with limes since we had way too many! I halved the truvia and kept everything the same. It was tart but delicious. I think the water/lime ratio was perfect! And then just adjust the sweetener to your preference. I'm sure most people would prefer more but I don't eat a lot of sweets lately. Read More
