Natural Sugar-Free Homemade Lemonade

I have this posted on my other blog Stefanie's This and That but am switching all my recipes to this blog. So here it is.

Since the weather is warming up I thought it would be a good idea to share my simple homemade sugar-free lemonade. It's not made with artificial sweeteners that are so bad for you like sweet & low, splenda and others like them. If you are not familiar with the dangers of those sweeteners and others like them, I would suggest you do some research. Dr. Mercola has some excellent articles and there is a documentary called Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World that you should google and see if you can find a copy to watch.

Anyhow, we drink a lot of water in our home but it is nice to have something a little different now and then. It's especially nice on hot summer days to have a cold glass of fresh lemonade. Since I don't do artificial sweeteners or load it with sugar, I use stevia extract and it tastes just as good and is much healthier for you. Besides tasting great, lemon juice is an electrolyte and has many health benefits, which you can read about here. Four tablespoons of lemon juice contains vitamin C, folate, vitamin A, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, and amino acids. For a complete in-depth nutrient analysis click here.

I don't use bottled lemon juice. It has preservatives and who knows what. I buy fresh lemons when I can find them at a good price. Then just simply wash them, juice them, and pour the juice into ice cube trays and freeze. Then when they are frozen, just pop them out and store them in a freezer bag. Doing this allows us to have a quick glass of lemonade anytime we want. Although, when at all possible, it is best to use fresh squeezed lemon juice and drink it right away for the most benefits.

Sugar-Free Homemade Lemonade

For 1 Serving:
1 cube of frozen lemon juice or 2 Tbsp of fresh juice
10 oz. cold filtered water
3 drops of lemon stevia
1/2 packet to 1 whole packet of stevia powder

Mix all the ingredients in a glass. The lemon juice cube will melt fairly quickly. Give it another stir and it is ready to drink.

For 6 servings:

6 cubes frozen lemon juice or 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
7 1/2 cups cold filtered water
18 drops of lemon stevia
3 to 6 packets of stevia powder

Mix all the ingredients in a large 72 oz. pitcher. The lemon juice cubes will melt fairly quickly. Give it another stir and it is ready to drink.

Notes:
You can also freeze limes and do a lemon-limeade blend as well.

But I also drink a lot of water too.
I like my tea that is hot with milk and sugar or tea that is cold with sugar but I don't tend to like the stuff that is sold in stores that has corn syrup in it because that is too sweet. I also make wonderful homemade lemonade or a mix of...am of artificial sweeteners although it is really because I don't have a sweet tooth.
But this week I just bought a yellow watermelon at the farmer's market. It almost tastes like mango. Very sweet and good- could see making a drink with it with some vodka. But I don't drink vodka every day or every other day or even every week. It is not on my budget so I only drink it on rare occasions.

    • Heatstroke or hyperthermia is a condition when the body loses a significant amount of fluid, and reacts adversely to prolonged exposure to excessive heat. This happens when one works continuously for a long time in direct …ugh perspiration. This also has the added benefit of keeping the body temperature within normal limits. Avoid drinking too much coffee and alcohol, as they tend to dehydrate the body, and increase the risk of dehydration.

    I mean lemonade made from lemon juice, sugar, and water

    • Well yes, a few.


      Lemons have alot of Vitamin C which boosts the body's immune system. And, in extreme heat, when someone is overheating and dehydrating from excess sweat, sugary water is actually very good for you.
