I love everything about a glass of fresh strawberry lemonade, except the high amounts of sugar they contain. But not this recipe. I’ve replaced the sugar with honey. Honey is a great alternative to sugar. It is a much healthier choice than processed sugar and artificial sweeteners. So go ahead, pour yourself a glass of this healthier version of homemade strawberry lemonade.
1 lb. strawberries washed, stemmed and cut into halves
2 small lemons cut in to quarters with skin left on
1 cup of honey
2 cups of water
Additional 4 cups of water at the end of recipe
Blend strawberries, lemons, honey and 2 cups of water in a large blender. Blend thoroughly. Next pour mixture into a strainer to remove the seeds and pulp. You will need to clean your strainer out several time during this process. This part is a little time consuming, but totally worth it. Once the mixture is strained add another 4 cups of water. Stir and serve over ice. If you have a fruit infusion pitcher you could add lemon and or strawberry slice to the inner rod. Enjoy!
