Jamie says: Lemonade makes me think of two things: children selling lemonade in the intense heat of the summer and the the expression “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”
When I was on a run back at home a couple of weeks ago, I saw two kids selling lemonade on a street corner near my house. They had signs posted on almost every stop sign in the neighborhood. I smiled at them, said “hi,” and ran on. I felt bad I had no money with me because it reminded me of the couple of times I sold lemonade as a kid…all that work for a dollar or two.
As for the expression “when life gives you lemons make lemonade,” I’m past the little lemon/lemonade phase I had (car accident, broken car window, etc.). Thank goodness.
- 1 lemon
- 3 Truvia packets
- 10 ice cubes
- 2 cups of cool water
- Wash lemon, cut in half, and squeeze juice into a pitcher.
- Add Truvia packets, ice cubes, and water to pitcher.
- Stir well. Enjoy!
This beverage was so refreshing! I was never a big lemonade fan, but now I am sold on it.
- Nutrition note: This lemonade is a very low-calorie beverage. A tablespoon of lemon juice only has 4 calories (and it has vitamin C). Truvia, which comes from the leaves of the stevia plant (from the rebiana),is natural and has zero calories.
