Homemade Lemonade Recipe

During my Plastic Trash Challenge, I learned how to make homemade lemonade. Store-bought lemonade simply doesn’t measure up! AND kids love it! Here is the recipe I found:

Preparation: 15 min

Refrigeration: 2 h

Yield: 1.5 Litres (about 6 cups)


• 1.25 L (5 cups) ice cold water

• 150 mL (1 cup) sugar*

• 250 mL (1 cup) lemon juice (about 5 lemons)**


In a large saucepan, bring 250 mL (1 cup) of the water to a boil with the sugar, stirring until all the sugar is dissolved.

Pour the sugar water in a pitcher and add the rest of the ice cold water, along with the juice from the squeezed lemons. Mix well and refrigerate for about 2 hours.

Voilà! It’s so quick and simple! A good habit to adopt 😉
