Lemonade July 19, 2010

Lemonade

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.  

Lemonade 

Ingredients: 

  • 1 lemon
  • 3 Truvia packets
  • 10 ice cubes
  • 2 cups of cool water

Directions: 

  1. Wash lemon, cut in half, and squeeze juice into a pitcher.
  2. Add Truvia packets, ice cubes, and water to pitcher. 
  3. 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.
