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 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 5 out of 5 by from Drinking Lemonade Again! I have an over abundance of lemons every year so I was thrilled to realize I could actually drink lemonade again! Who wants to make drinks that are so full of other words, very unhealthy? Not me. And I certainly don't want to serve my kids anything unhealthy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right off the tree! My lemon tree just started producing lemons for the first time and I am searching for all lemon recipes. This is my favorite. It is easy to make one glass at a time. Less calories and better for you than soda. It has just the right amount of tartness and sweetness.

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 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 Better than Mom's lemonaide My Mom was from California, so "real" lemonaide had to have fresh lemons and ... lots and lots of sugar. This recipe with Truvia makes lemonaide with the taste of traditional lemonaide without all that sugar. Fresh lemonaide is on the menu again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Lemonade It just would not be summer without a glass of lemonade and this lemonade made with Truvia hits the spot. I did jazz it up with some fresh lime juice and slices and you would not believe how tart and smooth tasting this drink can be

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun for Kids to Make! Such an easy recipe for kids to follow. They love to use my old antique metal juicer. Even my three year old can make this, and it tastes wonderful! Great alternative (much healthier!) than Crystal Lite for the sugar-free family!

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 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.
