I created this recipe for Less Sugar Added Fresh Strawberry Lemonade as part of a sponsored series with Socialstars and SPLENDA® Brand; all opinions are my own. #SweetSwaps #SplendaSweeties
Pin Strawberry Lemonade here.
Summer demands a thirst quencher. Here in Georgia we will regularly be over 90• and humid. They don’t call it “Hotlanta” for nothing. It is hot, humid and parching. I need a delicious non-alcoholic beverage to cool off. I also need something a little special to serve our guests at our July 4th party. Less Sugar Added Strawberry Lemonade is the ticket. It quenches your thirst and eases your parched throat. Think of it like fireworks in your mouth. Such delicious sweet and tart flavor all at once. It is the perfect way to while away an afternoon. Plus it is pretty. Isn’t the color gorgeous?
I always try to have a big pitcher of a non-alcoholic beverage at our parties. I find people prefer it to soda anymore. That is great with me, this is so much healthier. We never drink soda, so if there is leftover it sits in our refrigerator forever. There is never any strawberry lemonade left. People love it. You can also adjust the sweetness to your liking. I love how easy SPLENDA Zero™ Liquid Sweetener is to add to beverages. Just give it a squeeze and instant sweetness.
For my Lemongrass Mint Iced Tea, I let everyone sweeten it themselves. For this Less Sugar Added Strawberry Lemonade, I did add the SPLENDA® directly to the pitcher. I liked about 14 squeezes for the entire pitcher. You can add more or less depending on your preference. You can also serve it on the side and let your guests sweeten their glass themselves. I love how versatile SPLENDA Zero™ Liquid Sweetener is. Plus SPLENDA Zero™ Liquid Sweetener has no carbs, no sugar, and low calories. SPLENDA® Sweetener has so many different ways to help you reduce sugar on Sweet Swaps.
