Diabetic Lemonade Recipe

This is a great sugar free summer drink for someone with diabetes and it’s easy to make!


2/3 cup water

1/2 cup Splenda (granular)

1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 6-8 lemons)

4 to 6 cups cold water to taste

In a large glass measuring cup, combine water and Splenda.  Heat in microwave on high setting for 2 minutes.  Using caution, remove from microwave and stir the mixture to see if Splenda is completely dissolved.  If not, return to microwave and heat an additional 45-60 seconds.

Fill a large pitcher with ice.  Pour the lemon juice over the ice.  Add the Splenda mixture and stir well.  Add 4 cups of cold water.  Stir well to blend.  Taste and add additional water to suit your taste.
