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!

Skinny Lemonade-3


Ingredients: Yields: as much as you drink!!!

  • 4oz of freshly squeezed lemons (roughly 5-6)
  • 9 cups water
  • 6 Truvia Stevia packets
  • 2tbsp of honey

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

Skinny Lemonade-1

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!!

Skinny Lemonade-1-4

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.

Hey friend! I am glad you posted this 🙂 I have been thinking of you. First of all I love making lemonade with Stevia! Such a yummy summer drink.
You know my history with anxiety and I know how scary it can be and get, I struggled for awhile with it and to be honest I wish I knew what helped. I did a lot of yoga, daily meditation, and really tried to make the best of it all. Anyways, if you want send me an email you know where to find me 🙂 xoxo

I don’t know if you consider this “natural” but after I had my first baby I struggled with anxiety. My friend went to a local health food store and bought me “Lidell Oral Spray”….the “overwhelmed” one. You spray it under your tongue…all natural ingredients. Helped me like a charm. I still use it daily whenever i’m feeling anxious but always before bed so I can sleep. I now buy the “anxious” one….there are a few different types. Maybe give it a shot. That and decreasing caffeine and increasing exercise ;-).

Thank you Nicole, I will have to try this! Are you in the States or Canada?

I live in Montana but you can order it online. Here is a link.

I can’t order from them directly, but found a distributor that does! Just ordered some. Thank you so much for the recommendation.
