It's easy to make lemonade with Minute Maid frozen lemon juice concentrate, found in the frozen juice section of your supermarket. Mix to taste, and you control the sweetness, without sugar!
- Defrost a bottle of Minute Maid lemon concentrate in the fridge a day or two before the party. Shake well before using.
- To avoid sugar without using artificial sweeteners, use the herbal sweetener stevia, available in the sugar section of most supermarkets. Health food stores sell it too, and often have sample packets so you can see which tastes best. (stevia info | buy stevia online)
- To each 8 oz of water, add 2 teaspoons lemon juice concentrate and Stevia (or sugar, if you prefer) to taste. (For the KAL Pure Stevia Extract Powder we use, 2 tiny scoops of stevia powder is just right, and the 3.5 oz size has 2,381 scoops of very mild-tasting stevia!)
- If your party is outdoors, use a Rubbermaid or Igloo water cooler to keep your non-carbonated beverage cool, keep the bugs out, and make it easy for guests to serve themselves!
Minute Maid frozen lemon juice concentrate is nothing but concentrated pure lemon juice. No additives, no preservatives, no funny taste. Just like squeezing real lemons, without the mess! 2 tablespoons of concentrate = 1 the juice of medium lemon.
Each 7.5 oz bottle has the juice of 7 lemons, and once defrosted, it keeps in the fridge for 8 weeks. (The bottle has a convenient place for you to mark the date.)
