By Kristine Fretwell. I love anything lemon, so lemonade is included. Most lemonade is jam packed with sugar, so here’s a great alternative that tastes the same as regular lemonade, only without any of the sugar.
Since its summer, why not make it a frozen lemonade instead and have it even more refreshing…great idea I thought! This recipe makes 1 large lemonade, but if you need more, just double or triple the recipe.
Sugar Free Frozen Lemonade
Makes 1 large lemonade or 2 small
Juice of 2 lemons (100 ml’s, just under 1/2 cup)
2/3 cup water
2 cups ice
2 packets stevia (I used NuNaturals, you may need more or less depending on brand. If you use drops, start with 10-15 drops, concentrated extract start with 1/8 of a tsp)
Using a blender (I used a Magic Bullet), place all ingredients & blend. Adjust sweetness if desired. Enjoy!
