Fresh-Squeezed Lemonade is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love The Sweetness I started drinking lemon water every morning because I read an article on all the health benefits but I don't like drinking it without sweetening it so adding Truvia is the perfect additive to sweeten it without losing the natural benefits like adding sugar does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bliss on a Hot Day Nothing is better on a Summer afternoon than lemony sunshine happiness in a tall glass filled with ice. Now everyone can enjoy delicious lemonade without a sugar overload. Truvia makes it delicious and easy to prepare. Truvia mixes thoroughly without endless stirring or the bother of creating a simple syrup concoction first. Truvia Fresh-Squeezed Lemonade quenches thirst fast and really satisfies that craving for old fashioned lemonade without all the sugar. Your family and guests will love this treat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refreshing! I love lemonade but hate all the added sugar! I have now been making fresh lemonade using a packet of Truvia in place of sugar and love the refreshing taste I get. Truvia is now always around ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty relief for diabetics My husband is diabetic so it's hard to find great tasting drinks that contain no sugar. This recipe hits the mark! Truly delicious and I don't have to worry about his blood sugar spiking. He loves the taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refreshing Thirst Quencher I have been buying Truvia in the packets for over 2 years now. I buy the largest box that is available because I use it to not only make lemonade, but also in my oatmeal, cereals, kool-aid, teas and to season other foods like my fruits (strawberries and grapefruit so), my greens (when I cook turnip, mustard and collard greens with neckbones) and especially my pinto beans with ham hocks. My family can't tell the difference from when I used to use sugar. My daughter always use it in her black-eyed peas. I got her to eat them years ago by telling her to put some sugar on them like I did when I was a child. Sometimes, she opens a pack and sprinkles some on her lima beans and purple hull peas, when I cook them too. I have bought the Spoonable Truvia before too, but my family seemed to use it up so quick, I decided to just buy the packets to control that and they seem to be better for me and my family. As for the lemonade, I mostly use the Great Value Lemon Juice because I keep that in my fridge, but I have made fresh lemonade sweetened with my Truvia packets before too. I can enjoy the sweet taste and it's only 5 calories. It's so easy to put on the pounds and so hard to get them back off. I just love the fact that I can use my Truvia packets in my kitchen when I'm not only making drinks, but also preparing meals and I get that sweet taste with very few calories. Thank you! Teresa W.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good and yummy I tried this with my daughter over the summer and she loved it. I didn't tell her it was a sweetener and she never could tell. Has just enough pucker and sweetness for the kids and adults. Thanks for the Recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Refreshing I've tried this and several different versions of this over the last few months. It's so easy to make a fresh batch of lemonade. As long as you have lemons on hands, you're good to go. Some variations are adding mint and adding ginger. All are especially good on hot summer days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Refreshing summer drink! I do a variation of this recipe by also adding fresh-squeezed limes to the water. Adding the truvia gives just a hint of sweetness. Great alternative to diet soda.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and tasty This a refreshing drink that can be served year round but it's extra delicious in the heat of the summer. It quenches your thirst and is so much healthier than ready made lemonades or powdered options. I feel good serving this and enjoy the taste tremendously.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Most Refreshing Lemonade Ever It was very hot for over a week and I found cold water was not doing the trick to cool me down. I decided to try this recipe and was so glad I did. It was like a summer breeze that cooled me all over. I made a pitcher to share with friends at the pool. They all could not believe that I used Truvia and not white sugar. Thank you for making my summer days at the pool more delightful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the kids! I have been trying to cut back sugary drinks for my kids. I made this lemonade for them and they didn't even know it was sugar-free. They love it. I also frequently brew iced tea for my family and we have switched to truvia to sweeten that as well. I have tried other sweeteners in the past, but truvia is by far the best. No after taste like others. It is like using real sugar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lemon Tree Overload Not Wasted this Year Every year, my small lemon tree gives off too many lemons to use and so many go bad or to waste - not this year. I didn't know the proportion of sweetener to use on fresh-squeezed lemonade but this recipe is perfect. I made a pitcher this week and kept it in the refrigerator for my my entire family and they give their enthusiastic "thumbs up" to this refreshing treat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Sugar-Free Treat! My younger brother is sick with Candida overgrowth. He longs for a sweet treat, but rarely is he even allowed to eat fruit. I made this sugar-free lemonade for him, wondering if it might taste badly, like almost all of the other sugar-free drinks. But, when I tasted my creation, I was amazed at how delicious it was. "Is there really no sugar in this?" I thought. It has the perfect amount of sweetness that you would expect in regular lemonade. It also has a really nice lemony tang. It reminded me of the taste of my favorite lemonade - Simply lemonade. What an awesome treat! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fresh-Squeezed Lemonade I looked at this one since it is winter and I am looking forward to spring. This drink was just the ticket for helping me to remember the pleasures of a refreshing drink while waiting.
