summer is here.
as always, it brought with it hot temperatures that make me want a cold drink. to me, nothing is more refreshing than lemonade... sweet and tart and fresh and cool. and who doesn't love the sweet memories of childhood lemonade stands, waving and hoping neighbors will stop and pay their quarter for a dixie cup-full to quench their thirst.
what i don't love is drinking high-sugar beverages. that's just not how i like to consume my calories nor what i like to do to my blood sugar. sooo.... i make my own, and only add in things that are fresh, delicious and good for me.
the benefits of aloe and lemon juices are amazing and impressive. in this lemonade, their tartness is curbed by calorie-free stevia, adding the perfect amount of sweetness.
i contributed a post to www.myrecipes.com's blog, you've got to taste this, about this very drink. to read more about the fantastic health benefits of this refreshing concoction, make the jump over to the site.
