There is absolutely nothing more refreshing than a cold drink on a hot summer day!! Lemonade and I have always been best friends when the summertime rolls around and this light and tasty homemade raspberry lemonade is the perfect treat. It is made with Born Sweet Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener, fresh raspberries, fresh lemon juice and water… that’s it!
Oh my goodness… this sweetener is amaZING!! Only 1 packet of Born Sweet Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener is equivalent to the sweetness found in 2 teaspoons of sugar. It makes a wonderful addition to your morning coffee, smoothies or teas. I have been using it in my coffee recently and I love it! All of the sweetness I need without the unnecessary calories. But what I like the most about it is that it’s made from only REAL ingredients and nothing artificial. If you would like to try it out, you can pick up a free sample by visiting their page here or by locating a store near you with their convenient store locator.
My hubby and his friend Carlos spent 6 hours in the hot Texas sun climbing at a place called Enchanted Rock recently. As soon as they got home the first thing they went for was an ice-cold beer. I quickly intercepted them and offered each one a mason jar full of this fresh lemonade. Expecting them to double fist it with some lemonade and their beer, I was quite surprised to see them guzzle down the lemonade before even opening their beer! They said it was just what they needed to quench their thirst. A bit of tartness from the fresh lemons and a balance of sweetness from the raspberries and Born Sweet Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener make this lemonade extremely guzzle-able.
Included below is a picture guide to how you can easily whip up a big pitcher of this homemade raspberry lemonade. A very crucial step in the instructions is to run the raspberry purée through a fine mesh strainer. This step removes all of the raspberry seeds and leaves you with a perfectly smooth raspberry mixture to make your lemonade. Feel free to make this ahead of time for your summer party or get-together. Follow all of the steps and just wait to add ice to the pitcher when ready to serve. Garnish the serving glasses with lemon slices, raspberries and cute, colorful straws. Hope you all enjoy this thirst-quenching, summer drink made with Born Sweet Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener!
