"Easy to make and such a delicious refreshing drink specially in really hot weather, thanks for posting this"
"Wonderful lemonade! I made it with xylitol and erythritol for sweetener. Very nice, not so sweet, refreshing - perfect! Thanks for sharing!
Made for relax, Chat, Sip Some Iced Tea / Diabetes Forum"
"Very nice! Refreshing and low cal, it's a nice break from drinking just plain water. Made for KK's Recipe Tag."
"Wow...so delcious and so easy. This hit the spot for me on this hot and humid July afternoon. I love the fact that's it's virtually FF. The slushiness is a nice touch as well."
"A nice refreshing low calorie drink with a sweat tart flavor. Made using 2 teaspoons Splenda. Like that it makes just enough for one. Also liked the slushy effect the crushed ice gives this lemonade. Thanks for the post."
"I made as written and it was great. I don't like overly sweet lemonade, so the amount of sweetener was perfect (I used Splenda). I liked the frothy texture, almost like a slushie. I think this would be good with lime juice also! I like not having to make a whole pitcher when I just want a quick drink. (For 2 servings, expect small servings-I drank the whole thing)"
"I really enjoyed this recipe as it doesn't call for sugar and was easy to make for just one person. I had a lemon laying in my crisper so I used fresh lemon juice which livened it up. Made for ZWT5, Dining Daredevils."
"I really liked how frothy this turned out! However, I had to add *a lot* more sweetener (splenda). Made for ZWT 5 - Jammin Java Jivers"
"Delicious! I loved this frothy version of fresh lemonade and the amount of sugar was spot on for me (I like it tart). I know this will be wonderful to make at barbecues, whipping up a pitcherful at a time. Thanks for sharing! ~Sue"
"My DH and I tried this today and find it very refreshing. We both agreed that we'd double the sugar next time. This is going to be our go-to lemonade for summer! Thanks, Lauralie41! Made for Vegetarian Recipe Swap."
"My lemon tree is going nuts at the moment, this is a lovely simple refreshing drink & a great way to help me use my lemons rather than letting them go to waste, thanks for posting!"
"I love this drink and drink it every day usually just adding a good squeeze of lemon. Very refreshing and healthy."
"Wow this was great stuff ! I made a larger batch stirring 1 Cup fresh squeezed lemon juice into 4 Cups of cold water and added 4 packets of Stevia. I tried a small cup after stirring and it was dee-lish ! I then put 1 and 1/4 cups in the blender and blended as in the recipe. I actually preferred mine stirred and poured over ice. Thank you for posting this healthy and refreshing treat !"
"Perfect ! I use Stevita in mine. This is one of those recipes that everyone will change to taste some. I love mine tart so I use A LOT of lemon. Very yummy !"
"It's Feb and snowing again so I made a hot mug of this. In truth, I didn't measure exactly. I put a twisted (and squeezed)lemon wedge in my cup and added lemon juice to approximately a scant 1/4 of a cup, filled the cup with bottled water and heated it in the micro. Then I added Splenda to taste, between 2 to 3 tsps. It's wonderful hot and I know that I'll be making it cold this coming summer. Added to my diabetic cookbook."
"I thought ratio of water to lemon juice was just about right. I used 2 teaspoons of Splenda and it was still on the tart side, but that is how I like it!"
"I have been wanting to try this for awhile with the heat and so glad I did.. I will use this for my easy peasy new lemonade recipe. I used about 1/4 cup more water and used sweet n low. This is excellent and I want to try to blend it all together in a blender next time.. Thanks lori for a wonderful recipe that anyone who loves lemonade should try.. :)"
"I quadrupled this. My son loved it and my DH thought it was okay. I found this to be quite strong for me, but that's a personal taste. So all around 4 stars."
"I love this lemonade!!! I did not have to adjust the sweetener as it tells you to in Step 2. IMO Lemonade is not to be too sweet anyway. This was perfect!!! I wouldn't change a thing."
"Good lemon taste but will definately adjust the amount of sweetener next time-probably double it.I would say this is more like one serving, not two."
