Why not make homemade lemonade instead of powdered or frozen the next time the kids want to have a lemonade stand? It's fast, easy, and kids can even make this lemonade recipe themselves.


Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Cut lemons in half. If using a reamer or your hands, juice lemons over a sieve to remove pulp and seeds. If using a juicer, simply juice the lemons. You will need 1 cup of fresh lemon juice.​

  3. Pour lemon juice into a large pitcher.​

  4. Add sugar and 1 cup of cold water. Mix well until sugar crystals disappear. Stir in the remaining water.

Serve cold, garnished with strawberries, fresh mint sprigs or watermelon chunks.
