I watched Barefoot Contessa fix this today and since I had all ingredients on hand and it is HOT, thought I would fix it for our supper tonight. I sure am glad I did. This is awesome on a hot day. I hope you will try it too!

I also tried this recipe and I halved the amount of lemonjuice. Unfortunatly it was still too lemony and needed alot of Stevia/sugar.
