Homemade Honey-Sweetened Lemonade

Lovely, simple (& healthy!) recipe from http://www.redandhoney.com – happy reading ☺

I have a sweet tooth just as much as the next person, but I also know that too much sugar makes my body function like a geriatric patient. I try to avoid it in my everyday diet, but I don’t freak out at the occasional indulgence.

That being said – this lemonade is not an occasional indulgence kind of thing – it’s a twice-weekly-in-the-summer kind of thing! It’s delish. The perfect mixture of sweet and tart, and beautifully refreshing as a break from water (we typically just drink water around here).

To be honest, homemade lemonade is ridiculously easy. Water + lemon juice + sweetener. Most recipes floating around the web use white sugar, and plenty of it, but I’m really a fan of natural sweeteners wherever possible. My recipe uses honey instead of white sugar*.

*I added a few tablespoons of organic sugar to my latest batch because I don’t love the taste of grocery-store honey. I was spoiled back in Tiny Town with the most amazing local, creamed, organic honey that tasted like heaven. If I had that I’d use all honey, so that’s how I am writing the recipe. 

Make a big pitcher and keep it in the fridge (big canning jars work great too!), and enjoy! Lasts probably a week or so, but I’ve never had the chance to really test that because it always disappears so quickly!
