Strawberry Lemonade made with Stevia is delicious without any added sugar and makes a refreshing beverage for al fresco dining!
Hello Spring! I sense everyone is enthusiatic about welcoming warmer weather, and all that the rejuvenating seasonbrings. The Recipe Redux wants you to celebrate with healthy recipes for enjoying al fresco (National Picnic Day is April 23). Let’s get started with something strawberry! It’s perfectly convenient that this fragrant edible berry is in season the same time we are heading back outside to garden, to barbecue, and to reap the benefits of some good old fashioned fresh air. Ahhh! Doesn’t it feel good?!!!
Strawberries are not only a healthy and delicious stand alone snack but a versatile fruit that can be the used in a myriad of recipes, like spring salads and desserts . I’m going to keep this real simple with a homemade strawberry lemonade made light with Stevia. It’s a slim 70 calories per each refreshing 8 ounces, and has no added sugar! Whether you’re planning a brunch or a backyard barbeque, this light beverage is sure to fit in!
