Sugar Free Lemonade

Sugar Free Lemonade! No sugar added to this healthy lemonade, perfect for kids! Just three ingredients.

I know I’ve been bringing you a lot of drink recipes lately, but it’s where I’m at in life. I find myself informally hosting most evenings; having a friend swing by on her way home from work to catch up with a quick drink or playdate after playdate with Van’s new neighborhood friends.

That’s how this sugar free lemonade came to be. I wanted something that I could serve to both V and my friends; something that was a fun treat for hot days and didn’t contain a lot of sugar.

What’s naturally sweet and pairs perfectly with fresh lemon juice? Pineapple! Just three ingredients to the most refreshing, thirst-quenching, sugar free lemonade.

I’m not anti-juice, but at only 21-months, I think Van’s too young to get it. I occasionally will make fresh squeezed orange juice for him for breakfast but for the most part, he sticks to just water or soy milk.

However, on hot summer days I’m not opposed to fun drinks like this. It’s diluted enough, made with 100% juice and still retains the beneficial fiber. It feels like a good choice for all of us.

Here’s where I’m going to advocate for both fresh lemon juice and fresh pineapple. I haven’t testing this with pineapple juice, but the fiber in the pineapple is what makes this lemonade slightly thick and perfectly sip-able.

Since the pineapple is what makes this lemonade sweet without any sugar, the pineapple obviously needs to be very ripe. Underripe pineapple won’t have the same zip, it should be fragrant and juicy. If you use frozen pineapple, then I’d recommend thawing it first.

That’s it! Hope you love this one! If you try it, rate it, leave a comment or share it on Instagram using the hashtag #delishknowledge. Have a great weekend. xo

Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2  cup fresh lemon juice
  • 5 cups fresh ripe pineapple

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Strain, if desired (I usually don’t, but will make for a smoother lemonade) and serve over lots of ice.

Notes

Fresh, sweet pineapple is really what makes this. If your pineapple is underripe, you may need to add some sugar.

  1. We loved this lemonade!! My husband was feeling a little under the weather today and this was a lovely summer pick-me-up. We added a handful of frozen berries, and strained using the bag I got for nutmilks. So fun, pretty, tasty, and healthy. Thanks, Alex!
