Fresh Strawberry Lemonade


This recipe was very simple and delicious. I added stevia to mine and instead of freshly squeezed lemon juice I used 2 cups of that 100% natural lemon juice that's usually found in a green bottle. Perfect use for a chunk of the strawberries we picked recently!


    1 cup granulated sugar
    1 cup water
    2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
    1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice (about 6 medium lemons)
    6 cups cold water
    1 cup strawberries, chopped for topping
    lemon slice, for garnish

  • In a small sauce pan, bring sugar and water to a boil. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  • Place strawberries into a food processor or blender and process/blend until smooth.
  • Pour pureed strawberries into the sugar water. Add lemon juice. Stir well.
  • Pour strawberry lemon mixture and cold water into a large pitcher. Stir well and add ice. Pour into glasses and top with chopped strawberries and a lemon slice.
