Natural, Low Glycemic Strawberry Lemonade Recipe

natural strawberry lemonade recipe

Summer is proving to be no picnic for us. Even though I am less than ten miles from the ocean, temperatures are topping 100° and hanging steady in the 90’s. I am not dealing with much humidity, either. With weather like this in Los Angeles and around the country, one is in need respite. What better liquid refuge from the summer heat is there than lemonade? That’s right – strawberry lemonade.

If you are like my family, you strive to do things the natural (and usually more delicious) way whenever possible. The calories and chemicals can add up quickly when you buy pre-made lemonade or pre-packaged lemonade mixes. Lemonade is one of the simplest and tastiest enduring beverage recipes. To make it delicious requires the use of real lemons.

In order to be able to drink this strawberry lemonade recipe time and time again, it necessary to cut down the sugar. This is where Stevia comes in. Stevia may not be the best sweetener when it comes to baking, but as any Stevia user knows, it is ideal for sweetening beverages. Cutting down on the sugar by using Stevia is better for your teeth and diet.

My personal love of Stevia stems from my need to eat a low glycemic diet in order to treat my PCOS naturally. Without it, I would be confined to consuming a few coconut sugar-sweetened drinks and desserts here and there. That is no way to live, so I have started taking a more natural approach to desserts. You do not have to sacrifice flavor (especially sweets) in the name of healthy eating.

This strawberry lemonade recipe is case and point. I enjoy drinking it freshly made, so my recipe it for a single serving only. It is quite easy, though, to ramp up the serving size to create a pitcher of sweet lemonade. Also, if you like carbonated water at all, I highly recommend using it (flavored or unflavored) in this recipe. I am only a moderate fan of carbonated water and I LOVE making this recipe with carbonated water. Enjoy!
