For my friends in the United States, Happy (almost) 4th of July! I’ll be spending the day with my family, and wanted to leave you with something super easy to make tomorrow. On hot days like this, I’ll take anything I can get to cool down and make me feel all the happy summer vibes. An icy glass of healthy sugar-free lemonade does the trick!
You might know by now that I don’t do sugar-y drinks. Fruit juice – and definitely lemonade – is just sugar in disguise. So if you’re looking to make a healthy lemonade, you need to get rid of that sugar. And with my easy sugar-free lemonade recipe, you can!
Sugar-Free Lemonade Options
You may have seen a few options for sugar-free lemonade at stores. In fact, you can even sometimes find them at fountain drink stations.
Unfortunately, these pre-made sugar-free lemonade drinks are made with artificial flavors and artificial sweeteners. No, thanks!
There’s a better way. You can make your own healthy lemonade without sugar, right at home.
And since it only takes about five minutes, there’s no reason not to try this sugar-free lemonade recipe. Even if you’re feeling all the laziness of summertime.
A Better Choice for Healthy Lemonade
What’s the better alternative for healthy homemade lemonade? It comes down to just three simple ingredients:
- Lemon juice
- Liquid monk fruit sweetener
How easy is that?! I pretty much always have these ingredients around.
If you’re wondering about sweeteners, you need a liquid one. I tried granulated or even powdered, and the sugar-free sweeteners just down dissolve well enough. So even though the sugar-free lemonade made with those tastes fine, the texture is off and the sweetener settles to the bottom fairly quickly.
The Easiest Sugar-Free Lemonade Recipe
Some lemonade recipes require heating or extra steps, but not this one! It’s as easy as can be. If you have the needed ingredients and a few minutes, you totally have time to make this sugar-free lemonade recipe.
All you have to do is combine the lemon juice, sweetener and water in a blender. And you’re done! You can feel free to adjust the sweetener to taste if you want, too.
Want to make sugar-free lemonade ahead of time? No problem! You can mix it all together and just leave out the ice. When you’re ready to drink it, give it a stir and pour over ice. Happy summer!
