Looking for the best homemade lemonade recipe? This refreshing lemonade requires just three ingredients and is so easy to make and can be made with or without sugar.
BEST HOMEMADE LEMONADE RECIPE
2 cups lemon juice, (about 5 pounds of lemons)
2 cups of filtered water
1.5 cups monk fruit, honey, or sugar*
In a small saucepan, heat water and sweetener of choice over a medium-low heat, stirring occasionally.
Right before the sugar mixture comes to a simmer, the sweetener will dissolve into the water creating a simple syrup. Shut off the heat and allow to cool.
Juice lemons and add to a large pitcher. Pour in simple syrup and stir.
Add ice and up to 4 cups of filtered water. Serve and enjoy!
If you would like to use stevia for your lemonade, reduce measurement to 1/4 cup.
I like to store my lemonade in large mason jars in the fridge.
