Homemade Lemonade is such an easy recipe to make and has been a summer favorite for decades. Even though it’s simple, most of us just grab it off the shelf from our local grocer. While there are definitely some great options out there, the majority of pre made lemonade mixes and drinks are filled with sugar and artificial flavorings. 

 

I bet you’ve heard of Minute Maid Lemonade before. Have you ever taken a look at the ingredients in their lemonade?

 

Minute Maid Lemonade Ingredients:

Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Citric Acid, Lemon Juice, Flavoring, Sugar, EDTA, Glycerol of Wood Rosin, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Hexametaphosphate, Yellow 5, Modified Corn Starch

 

Can you say YUM  (just kidding)!

 

Now let’s compare that to this simple and delicious, fresh, Homemade Lemonade recipe that uses real lemons and honey:

Water, Lemons, Raw Honey, Sea Salt

 

That’s it! So simple!

Easy Homemade Lemonade Recipe using real lemons and honey. Simple, sweet and delicious!
Ingredients
  • 7 cups Water
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed Lemon juice from Lemons (approx. 4-6 lemons, depending on size)
  • ½ cup Honey (this is sweet lemonade and will taste just like the lemonade you get at the store! If you prefer it not as sweet, use ¼ cup honey instead)
  • ⅛ tsp Sea Salt (don't forget the sea salt - it makes the lemonade really smooth!)
  • a small Citrus Juicer (Find HERE)
Instructions
  1. Juice your lemons. If you do not have a citrus juicer and want to juice the lemons by hand you can definitely still do so. Because you may not be quite as efficient, you may need more lemons than listed above.
  2. Pour the fresh lemon juice into a gallon mason jar or large drink container (I use THIS one).
  3. Add water and stir well.
  4. Mix in honey and sea salt.
  5. Enjoy! Best served chilled with ice and some fresh mint leaves.

  1. This sounds great Kelly! The sea salt is a good addition. My grandmother just turned 104, and swears by fresh lemonade. She always had a big pitcher of it in the fridge. So much better than the store bought!

  2. Hello Kelly
    Fully agree with you that their no soft drink that can beat lemonade ,it is simply refreshing and plus it loaded with so many health benefits ,take it early morning before going out for a morning walk ,one can actually feel the spring in ones walk ,and again when you are tired ,take it ,you will feel refreshed immediately .

  3. I’m making this today, just confused as to how 8 cups of lemon juice + water = 1 gallon?

  4. Pinning this since we just planted a lemon tree this month! I’m sure I’ll be needing recipes to use them up soon.

      Oh how fun, Sue! We got an indoor meyer lemon tree about 2 years ago and I’m still patiently waiting for lemons haha! A bunch of little ones come on it a few times a year, but they always fall off before they get big 🙁 It’s so fun to have it, though – when the flowers bloom it fills my house with the most amazing smell – love it!!!

  5. Can you use Himalayan pink salt instead?
