Stevia Lemonade / Cocktail Mixer

leave a comment

I know what you are thinking. Is this a recipe on Jon’s website? Yep. I am no culinary genius, but life gave us lemons in the form of a monster lemon tree. It produces more lemons than we could ever consume, so I learned how to make lemonade! However, this created a conflict with my personal quest to dramatically reduce the amount of sugar and carbohydrates that I consume. Why am I trying to reduce the sugar and carbs? This doctor pretty much sums up my beliefs on the topic. So, back to the lemonade. My wife introduced me to Stevia; a natural herb that is a fantastic substitute for sugar. It is much more powerful than sugar so getting the right amount for lemonade was a bit of a challenge. Most ‘regular’ lemonade recipes use 1 to 2 cups of sugar! The recipe I have uses only 2.4 teaspoons of Stevia! This lemonade also makes a fantastic cocktail mixer!

  • 2 cups lemon juice

Instructions: It’s simple… mix the above and drink!
