Homemade Lemonade Water, the delicious and refreshing flavor of fresh lemons with a hint of sweetness.
Nothing is more refreshing than homemade lemonade water! Why do we call our lemonade lemonade water? Well, it’s because we don’t use a ton of sugar! We like to taste the lemon and it’s a cross between a lemon infused water and a sweet lemonade.
This lemonade won’t leave you with sugar on the bottom, but it will leave you refreshed! What I love about our homemade lemonade water is how easy it is to make! Large mason jars are great for this recipe.
I find that when we use organic cane sugar it’s actually a little sweeter than regular sugar. Our daughter loves traditional lemonade on the boardwalk, I mean who doesn’t’?! However she’ll beg for this at home! We do it with all of the citrus fruits!
You can even take our homemade lemonade water and infuse it with fresh fruits. A favorite way for our daughter to enjoy it on an extremely hot day is ice pops! Just pour into your favorite ice pop molds and add in your favorite fruits! The sweeter the fruit, the better the pop!
Don’t forget to wash those lemons really well! (check out our recipe for Fruit and Veggie Spray )
If you want to keep it cold while you’re out you can even make some in advance and pour into a silicone ice cub tray. We like doing this and putting some chunks of lemon inside the ice cubes. It’s always good to use a quality knife when working with produce, or anything that needs slicing and dicing for that matter.
I just love enjoying this homemade lemonade water throughout the day. Once it’s empty I’ll fill it right back up so I don’t waste our beautiful yellow organic lemons! We hope you enjoy our Homemade Lemonade Water, I know we do!
