Homemade Lemonade with Real Lemons and Honey

This is the best homemade lemonade recipe using real lemons and honey! It’s so simple, fresh, delicious & refreshing! 

 

Homemade Lemonade is such an easy recipe to make and has been a summer favorite for decades in my family. 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 high fructose corn syrup and artificial flavorings or they're just to expensive. So rather then serving your family those pre-made mixes why not try this simple and delicious, Homemade Lemonade recipe that uses just four ingredients:

 

Water, Lemons, Raw Honey, Sea Salt

That’s it! So simple! And so much better for you!

 Below you will find a recipe that will yield a half gallon of All-Natural Homemade Simple and Sweet Lemonade made with no preservatives or processed sugars. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

 

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

 

Instructions

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.

Pour the fresh lemon juice into a gallon mason jar or large drink container.

Add water and stir well.

Mix in honey and sea salt.

Enjoy! Best served chilled with ice and some fresh mint leaves.
