My daughter loves lemonade and she wants to have lemonade stands all the time but she can’t have sugar. The problem with sugar alternatives is that most of them are brown and that makes for a very ugly lemonade. The ones that are white are so highly processed you ight be better off with an organic white sugar. See this article about stevia from 100 days of real food. I was stumped until mid summer when I had found I had leftover watermelon from the weekend and needed to do something with it. Normally I go right for the watermelon margaritas but it was a Tuesday at 2 in the afternoon and my 5 year old wanted to have a lemonade stand so I put down the tequila. What I discovered is that watermelon is so sweet you don’t need any sugar. You can do this in a blender but of course the vitamix is the best! You can also use a juicer and avoid the step of straining the watermelon.
First cube up your left over watermelon and put it in the blender. Blend on the highest setting until liquified.
Now strain the watermelon.
Now add some water and lemon or lime juice to taste. Start with ratio of 25% water to watermelon juice. Then add lemon or lime juice one at a time till you like the balance of sweet to tart. Now add some mint leaves and slices of lemons and/or limes. Poor it over a ton of ice and open the lemonade stand!
