Sugar Free Lemonade

Ahh Lemonade. A favorite summertime drink! I came across this recipe for making fresh lemonade a while ago, but since my son's diagnosis with Type 1 Diabetes, we opted to go in search of more sugar free recipes.

That's when I tweaked this recipe.

It truly is a very tasty drink. Great for those hot summer days!


1 1/2 cups Splenda sugar substitute
1/2 cup boiling water
2 teaspoons fresh lemon rind, grated
1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice
5 cups cold water


1 Stir together sugar and 1/2 cup boiling water until sugar dissolves.

2 Stir in lemon rind, lemon juice, and 5 cups cold water.

3 Pour into a 2 quart pitcher.

4 Chill 8 hours.

5 Serve over ice.
