Homemade Lemonade (Sweetened with Honey)

Homemade Lemonade (Sweetened with honey)

I loved Lemonade as a kid. That’s the only thing I would drink besides chocolate milk. I was not a fan of soda so lemonade was my go to. Unfortunately, most store bought lemonade is loaded with sugar and sometimes even artificial sweeteners. I wanted to create an option for those of us that don’t particularly enjoy those ingredients.

Can I use cane sugar or coconut sugar instead of honey?

You can, I have not personally tried it, but it will work just fine.

Can I use store bought lemon juice?

You can, but in my opinion it is better with fresh lemons.

This is going to taste different from traditional lemonade due to the fact that is is only sweetened with honey. However, it tastes amazing and you can add some fresh mint or berries to add to the fun.



  1. Instructions

    Juice all 8 of your lemons into a large glass measuring cup or bow. You want to juice your lemons until you get 1 cup of lemon juice. 

    If you do not have a juicer, you can just use a handheld lemon squeezer.

    After you have a cup, strain the lemon juice into a separate bowl. Putting the lemon juice through a strainer is going to catch any of those runaway seeds.

    Add your lemon juice to any juice pitcher or glass pitcher that you have and set aside.

    Add your honey and water to a sauce pan and heat on medium low for five minutes. The goal is to dissolve the honey so that you can no longer feel the texture of the honey and it all blends into a nice liquid consistency. Once this step is complete, allow to cool for five to ten minutes and then add the honey simple syrup to your lemon juice. 

    Add ice to your pitcher and store in the fridge to cool for 30 minutes,.

    DISCLAIMER: This does not make a lot of lemonade, maybe enough for four glasses. You can add more water to the lemonade to increase your supply. However, this may dilute the sweetness. 

    Enjoy your lemonade by adding some fresh mint or berries.
