Who doesn’t love a nice cool glass of freshly squeezed lemonade on a hot Summer’s day? Sure, you can make the mix {I’m okay with that, really!} But, nothing takes the place of homemade. This recipe is easy and delicious~ I just couldn’t pass up sharing it with you. Enjoy often with friends and family…

Just 3 ingredients. Lemons, water and sugar. This is hot water with sugar disolving.

I have a very basic juicer that does a great job….

My little girl LOVES to help….so sweet!

She’s such a good big sister… teaching her little sister how to juice lemons ;)

Look at all of that freshly squeezed lemon juice! So refreshing!!!

Add it to the hot sugar water, then add cold water, ice and lemon slices.

Enjoy! Ahhhh…..

  1. We love freshly squeezed lemonade too! To make it a little healthier I add Truvia instead of sugar, cutting the amount by half or even less. We also like to add frozen strawberries sometimes, yummy!

  2. As soon as we saw this recipe, we tried it this afternoon with our neighborhood friends who were here to play. A huge “thumbs up!” from all of the kids around the table. In fact, they left with the recipe to take home 🙂 Thank you for sharing this easy and delicious recipe!

  3. I’ve literally made this four times since you posted this! I had to run out for way more lemons. I am giving up pop, so this is a great alternative. I tried to cut the sugar amount on my second batch. Nope, the recipe is perfect as is. Thanks!!
