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!

What You'll Need

  • 6-8 lemons
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 cups cold water
  • Strawberries (fresh mint or watermelon chunks for garnish)

How to Make It

  1. 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.​
  2. Pour lemon juice into a large pitcher.​
  3. 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.
