Peach Lemonade


So I decided to make a special drink for Father's Day. I keep seeing all of the different posts for flavored lemonades. Since my wonderful husband does not like berries, I decided to make peach lemonade. Also, since I try not to use much sugar I did use two kinds of stevia.


Peach Lemonade

Ingredients:

3/4 cup Stevia in the Raw
1/4 cup Stevia in the Raw Sweet Leaf
1/2 cup hot water
1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
8 cups cold water
2 cups peaches
1/2 cup Stevia in the Raw

Put the two kinds of Stevia in the Raw in a bowl, add the hot water and stir until dissolved. Set aside.


In a separate bowl use a potato masher and mash the peaches along with the 1/2 cup of Stevia in the raw. Set aside.



To get the most juice from the lemons, roll the lemons against the counter until sift, this will get you the maximum amount of juice from your lemons. Squeeze the lemons, about 6 will give you 1 cup of juice.


Next, put the peaches in the in a pitcher, then add the stevia water mixture, stir. Then add the lemon juice, then the 8 cups of water. Stir well.
















To serve add ice to glass, then add peach lemonade. Put a peach or lemon slice on the side of the glass for a garnish.


Let me know if you like this recipe, and what your favorite flavor of lemonade is.  I would love to hear from you

Enjoy!!!
