For several weeks, my eight-year-old Addison has been begging me to make homemade lemonade. When we were grocery shopping this week and saw lemons on sale for a great price, we knew that the time was right.
We had never made homemade lemonade before, but it turns out to be super easy. In fact, It’s so easy, that Addison made it all by herself while I loaded the dishwasher.
She felt so accomplished!! (A sense of accomplishment is one of my favorite things that happens when kids get to help in the kitchen)
We were all so pleased when we tasted it. It was SO delicious and SO refreshing. Homemade is just so much better than store-bought! And since we’ve had several 90 degree days here this week, it definitely hit the spot.
I hope that lemons are on sale at your store this week, too. Grab a bunch and treat yourself to this refreshing lemonade!
- 1¾ cup lemon juice from fresh squeezed lemons (about 7-8 large lemons)

- 5 cups cold water
- In a large pitcher, mix Splenda (or sugar) and lemon juice until blended.
