Maybe this will be my last citrus involved recipe……or maybe not?! Citrus makes me happy and hopefully, it makes you happy too! This week I have been juicing lemons and making fresh-squeezed lemonade for my kids. They have now become a bit spoiled and might not ever want to return to the canned stuff, but that’s fine, because making your own lemonade is a lot easier than you think! Plus, this is going to give you all the warm and fuzzies, because it’s like drinking the lemonade your mom use to make!
You need only 3 ingredients; a cup of fresh-squeezed lemon juice (about 5 lemons), 1 cup sugar (you can also use a sugar substitute as well), and 6 cups of water. That’s it seriously!
Here’s the beautiful thing, you can use this simple recipe as a base and add all kinds of fun things to it like fresh raspberries, blueberries, strawberries. You can freeze the lemonade and turn it into slushes or ice cubes. The world is your oyster here, because of how easy this is to make and then adjust to whatever you would like it to be!
