Perfect Lemonade

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 62
Yield: 4 cups


3 large lemons (1/2 cup juice)
1/3 cup sugar
3 cold water
1 cup


1. Juice the lemons.
2. Mix the sugar and lemon juice together until almost all of the sugar has dissolved.
3. Pour the sweetened lemon juice into a pitcher, add cold water, and serve as is or over ice.

Important tip
Lemonade is mostly water, so the better tasting the water—the better tasting the lemonade.

Healthy Fruity Soda!
Want to make your own fruit soda? Simply mix equal parts carbonated sparkling water and your favorite juice. Grape juice for grape soda, orange juice for orange soda . . . you get the idea. For lemon soda, mix 1 part of the concentrate in Step 2 (above) with 3 parts sparkling water. It’s a great way to drink low-calorie soda without a lot of chemicals and additives. I prefer it over regular soda in a heartbeat.
