  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups of sweetener (agave nectar, sugar or maple syrup)
  • 2 cups of water (to make the syrup)
  • 2 cups of juice (approx 6 lemons juiced)
  • 3-4 cups of water to mix
  • Cuisine: Cooking time: 15 mins Serving: 4-8 people

    I just moved into a new house and in the back yard is a large and beautiful lemon tree.  The lemons are perfectly ripe right now so when you walk outside you are hit with their warm, sweet and tart smell.  It is wonderful!

    This is a very simple recipe that takes just a few minutes and is so worth the extra couple of minutes compared to any store bought lemonade.  You can add strawberries, raspberries or blueberries to make a berry lemonade or just stick with the old country favorite.   You can reduce the sweetener if you like yours less sweet.

    Did You Know!?

    • Although the lemon is often thought of as acidic, it is very effective in curing many digestion problems when mixed with hot water, including biliousness, nausea, heartburn, disorders of the lower intestines like constipation and worm infestations.

    Real  Lemonade
    Makes 1 pitcher

    1 1/2 – 2 cups of sweetener (agave nectar, sugar or maple syrup)
    2 cups of water (to make the syrup)
    2 cups of juice  (approx 6 lemons juiced)
    3-4 cups of water to mix

    Make the syrup by mixing the 2 cups of water with your sweetener in a saucepan.  Heat on medium heat making sure to stir often until the sugar is dissolved.  Set aside to cool.

    While the syrup is cooling use a juicer to make 2 cups of lemon juice (approximately 6 lemons).

    Add the juice, syrup and extra water (more or less depending on desired strength) in a pitcher and mix.  Refrigerate 30 minutes to cool or just add some ice and drink immediately.
