Made out of strawberry and lemons, the strawberry lemonade is tasty, refreshing and silhouette friendly!
Both the strawberries and the lemons are filled with chemical compounds which can make wonders for you and your health. One way to enjoy their combined nutrition and health benefits is the STRAWBERRY LEMONADE.

How to prepare your own Strawberry Lemonade:

How many calories in your Honey Strawberry Lemonade:
- 100 calories/serving
They all come from carbohydrates (sugars).
To cut out calories, you can have maple syrup instead of the honey (1 tbsp pure maple syrup for each serving of lemonade).
The Diet version of the Strawberry Lemonade can be made with any brand of artificial sweeteners (aspartame, sucralose, sucrose, acesulfame potassium, saccharin). You can also try rebiana. Rebiana is derived from the stevia plant, and seems to be the natural alternative to artificial sweeteners. For the moment there still is a controversy concerning the rebiana, since some scientists claimed that this sweetener can cause mutations and DNA damages.
The Healthy Detox version of the Strawberry Lemonade does not contain sweeteners. There is no sugar, honey or any other sweetener in this strawberry lemonade. You can put a larger quantity of strawberry puree in your mix, to make it sweeter and tastier. The combination of lemons and strawberries can make miracles for your silhouette.
In the hot summer days, you can try the Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles. Fill a Popsicle mold with the liquid lemonade (sweetened or unsweetened) and freeze it until solid. Or from the ingredients list from the recipe mentioned above, you can replace the water with ice cubes and put everything in a blender. You will obtain a delicious and refreshing mix!
