Why not make homemade lemonade instead of powdered or frozen the next time the kids want to have a lemonade stand? It's fast, easy, and kids can even make this lemonade recipe themselves!
- 6-8 lemons
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 6 cups cold water
- Strawberries (fresh mint or watermelon chunks for garnish)
- Cut lemons in half. If using a reamer or your hands, juice lemons over a sieve to remove pulp and seeds. If using a juicer, simply juice the lemons. You will need 1 cup of fresh lemon juice.
- Pour lemon juice into a large pitcher.
- Add sugar and 1 cup of the cold water. Mix well, until sugar crystals disappear. Stir in remaining water.
Serve cold, garnished with fresh mint sprigs, watermelon chunks or strawberries.
