Homemade Strawberry Lemonade!

Tuesday, March 1, 2016

Don't you just love it when a rather ordinary day starts out kinda dull but by the end of the day it has turned out to be a day worth remembering.  That's how I feel about today!

Today started out poorly.  For starters, I slept in this morning.  Sleeping in always puts me in a grumpy mood because I think of all the time I have already wasted by not having an early start.  Deciding not to let it get the worst of me I decided to make the best use of the rest of today. 

I have started a new photography challenge for March.  It's called "March photo-a-day" and for each day of March there is a word that I need to portray in my photography. Today my word was 'yellow'.  I asked my mom for ideas this morning and she mentioned that we have a lot of lemons.  You can't get more yellow than that, right?  

 I sliced some lemons for my picture, then one thing led to another (kinda like the book "If You Give a Pig a Pancake")After slicing my lemons I decided to make a lemonade drink.  I noticed we also had some strawberries in the fridge so I  slice them up too.  I ended up with strawberry lemonade.  

My strawberry lemonade tasted amazing! It turned out better than I had anticipated and it just wouldn't be fair if I didn't share.  My homemade lemonade is also sugar-free and I could not even taste the difference. 

Taking my sliced lemons and strawberries I put them into my cute mason jar mug (that even has my name on it!) and filled my jar up with filtered water.  Any water will do but I like to use filtered water because it tastes better in my opinion.  I also added some ice because I like my water cold.  

In order for the drink to start tasting like the lemon and strawberry you need to let the fruit sit in the water for awhile.  You can put the drink in the fridge and let it sit overnight if you desire.

In order to make my lemonade taste good right away I squeezed half of a lemon into my drink.  Now for my secret to making my lemonade taste sweet without using sugar.  It is really quite simple.  All I added was stevia.  

We have a box full of small packets of stevia we keep in the cupboard for tea. I added one packet to my drink and WALLA!  You have delicious lemonade that looks and tastes amazing. 

I hope you get a chance to try this simple refreshing and healthy drink.
