Honey Sweetened Lemonade

Did you know that the earliest written evidence of lemonade was found in Egypt? It’s believed to have been consumed as early as AD 1000. Lemons were likely introduced from Asia around AD 700. Although lemonade is typically sweetened with sugar… this honey sweetened option is even better than the granulated sugar options.

Honey is Good for You!

Did you know that eating local honey is thought to cure your allergies? This may or may not be true but… if it is, great (all the better)! Honey also has loads of nutritional properties and is said to have many positive affects on the body.

Honey-Sweetened Strawberry Lemonade

Yield: 8 cups
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

Sweetened with honey instead of refined sugar, this strawberry lemonade is the perfect blend of sweet and sour. Perfect for cooling down on a hot summer day

Ingredients

  • 3-1/2 cups Cold Water, divided
  • 2 cups Fresh-Squeezed Lemon Juice, strained of pulp and seeds, if desired
  • 1-1/2 cups Honey
  • 3 cups Large Strawberries, about 16 (fresh or frozen, thawed, hulled, & quartered) plus more for garnish
  • Ice, for serving

Instructions

  1. In a blender or food processor, puree the strawberries with 1/2 cup cold water and the honey.
  2. In a large pitcher, combine the remaining cold water, the sweetened strawberry puree, and the lemon juice.
  3. Serve chilled over ice and garnish with a fresh strawberry. Alternately, pour into popsicle molds and freeze until solid.

Notes

  • Try to get lemons with thin rinds. They are easier to juice and yield more juice as well.
  • If you will be making a large batch of this, I would highly recommend getting something like the KitchenAid Juicing attachment. It will save your wrists and arms a lot of pain (trust me, I know).

    1. It doesn’t last long around here, but I would say 1-2 weeks (give it a good shake before you drink it, since the strawberry puree tends to settle).

  1. I’m trying this recipe for my daughter’s second birthday party. In the ingredients list you mention that the honey should be divided but in the directions it indicates to put it all in the blender. Did I miss something? I want to get it right.

    1. Hi Amanda. The honey shouldn’t be divided, that’s a typo. I’ve removed it from the list, thanks for bringing it to my attention. I hope your daughter enjoys the lemonade and has a great birthday!
