One of the best parts about summer is kicking back and sipping a glass of cold, refreshing lemonade under the hot sun. But most prepackaged lemonade mixes are filled with chemicals and refined white sugar – yuck! Instead of stirring up lemonade from a powder, try fresh-squeezing your own. Made with real organic lemons and natural, unrefined raw cane sugar, this lemonade is so good you’ll want to open a stand in your front yard and share with your neighbors.
6 organic lemons
1 cup organic cane sugar
2-3 cups ice
6 cups filtered, cold water
2 extra lemons for slicing
- Juice lemons. In blender, combine, 3 cups water and 1/2 cup sugar; blend on low, then on high until dissolved.
- Pour mixture evenly into two large glass pitchers or one large beverage dispenser. Add remainder of water and stir, then add remaining ice and stir again.
- Cut extra lemons into large slices and place them in lemonade for extra flavor.
- Serve immediately over crushed ice, or cover and place in refrigerator.
