Skinny Lemonade

by Destini on June 30, 2014

It’s super ironic that I have decided to write this delicious post on a Monday after the WORST rain storm we’ve seen in several years….of course its the first year we’re in our new house…*sigh*

I have been quite quiet lately on the blog, I know I have said that a lot. I have been personally going through a lot of anxiety and stress. And trying to find the most natural way to cope with these issues. I know I’ve been quite quiet on the personal front, and focused  mostly on recipes on this blog. I miss making this a lifestyle blog and not just a recipe one. I donno, let me know what you guys think….

ANYWAY… let me share this amazing recipe. It’s perfect for any sunny day. I always make a batch while the hubby is hard at work in our backyard. Yep….think 50’s housewife serving her husband a nice cold glass of homemade lemonade after he’s all tired and hot from physical labour. Did I not just describe many women’s fantasy’s? YEP  haha. Best part is this is so guilt free!

Directions: Juice all lemons, strain through a strainer (less pulp & seeds), add cold water, Truvia and honey.

Hubby loves pulp, but using a hand juicer for the lemons and a strainer still leaves a little. I am sure I would be better off using my juicer, but this is less clean up!!

Yep….I just POUR that honey. In fact, I warm it up…Skinny Lemonade-2

Garnish with more lemon, drink with a ton of ice..Skinny Lemonade-4


If you want to adult this drink up, add some vodka or gin…CLEAR ALCOHOL!!

Well that is all for today! If any of you struggle with anxiety and have methods that are (natural) to handle it,  please share.
