One of our favorite drinks

Since we have been talking about sweeteners I wanted to share with you one of our favorite drinks.  It is a tart lemonade, which we like.  It is so great to have another option other than water. 
(tip:  Did you know that lemon juice is actually a base not an acid when you drink it.  So if you struggle with an acidic stomach try this recipe to help even things out)

Homemade Lemonade
1 cup of Lemon Juice
2 TB Stevia

Mix lemon juice and stevia.  Pour into a 1 gallon pitcher.  Fill the Pitcher with ice and water.

Raspberry Lemonade
1/2 cup of raspberries. Blend in blender add to lemonade. Taste lemonade over ice you might need to add 1/2 tsp of stevia to sweeten up the raspberries. 

Strawberry Lemonade
1/2 cup of strawberries.  Blend in blender and add to lemonade. Taste test to check for sweetness add stevia as needed.
