How do you make sugar-free lemonade?

To make sugar-free lemonade, you’ll need water, lemons and monkfruit (or another preferred sweetener).

Many recipes call for the sugar or sweetener to simply be added to the lemon juice, but I find it works best to make a quick simple syrup. This will ensure that the sweetener is thoroughly combined with the water and you won’t end up with any grainy bits of monkfruit in your drink.

To make your simple syrup, you’ll need to combine water and monkfruit, and then heat until the monkfruit has dissolved. You’ll then combine the simple syrup with fresh lemon juice, more water and ice. That’s all there is to it!

This Sugar-Free Lemonade is:

Perfectly tangy
So refreshing
Lightly sweetened
And so simple to make!

Fabulous for summer barbecues, brunches, showers or just hanging around the house. This sugar-free lemonade recipe will quickly become one of your favorites, as it already has become one of mine! Bring on your sweltering heat, summer. With this drink, I’m ready!
