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.
