Tangy & Sweet Sugar-Free Lemonade

I love lemonade but I don't love all the sugar that's added to store bought lemonade, and I definitely don't like when it's sweetened with artificial sweeteners. Yuck.

In this recipe I used powdered stevia. Stevia is an herb 150 times sweeter than regular cane sugar but doesn't raise your glucose levels so it's fairly safe for diabetics and other people watching their sugar intake. 

  • 1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 quart of sparkling water
  • 1/4th teaspoon of stevia powder
  • 1/4th cup of crushed blueberries

It's simple. Mix all your ingredients and drink over ice.
