honey sweetened lemonadeI just can’t justify the amount of sugar most lemonade recipes call for. We prefer a much simpler, quick to mix up lemonade, sweetened with a modest amount of honey,  this way we can enjoy it regularly when the weather is hot! Honey Sweetened Lemonade

  1. I have been making this regularly once or twice a week, usually using lime juice. It is so delicious! I feel good letting my kids drink it because I know what’s in it.

  2. Living in Texas where the temps dangle in the triple digits for MONTHS, this is such a healthy and refreshing alternative to sports drinks. It hydrates and replenishes minerals and is super tasty! My dancers love it after a hard workout!
