Homemade Lemonade

Savannah and Xander had so much fun squeezing the lemons! I love cooking with them!

For Savannah and Xander I fill their cups up with water and poor in just enough lemonade to make it yellow and give it the lemonade taste! I know I'm mean, but they don't even notice!

Homemade Lemonade ( Adapted from Simply Recipes)


  • 1/2 cup Splenda
  • 1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 3 to 4 cups cold water (to dilute)


1 Make simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.

2 While the Splenda is dissolving, use a juicer to extract the juice from 4 to 6 lemons, enough for one cup of juice.

3 Add the juice and the Splenda water to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes. If the lemonade is a little sweet for your taste, add a little more straight lemon juice to it.

Serve with ice, sliced lemons.

Yield: Serves 6.

This is the best Lemonade recipe ever! You can't even tell that there isn't sugar in it!!
