This is a recipe written for kids to make.
Lemonade is so very refreshing on warm summer days, don’t you think? The downside is the amount of sugar that goes in. That is why it totally benefits from making your own, because you can limit the amount of sugar you want. Only use just enough for your taste. Usually that is just a fraction of what the shop bought lemonade would have in it.
If you make a few bottles, you might even have a little stall outside your house for your neighbours to enjoy some as well. Imagine, how nice that would be, everybody coming along for a cup of homemade lemonade and a lovely chat!
It is so easy to make yourself, keep reading and let’s get cracking!

What you will need:
- sieve or cauldron
- pouring jug
- funnel (optional)
- 1 big bottle (1.5 liter) bottle or 2 smaller ones (0.75 l or 1 l)
- food processor or blender
- 2 unwaxed lemons*
- 1 unwaxed lime*
- 100 grams of runny honey (or caster sugar)
- 1 liter of (sparkling) water
*If you don’t have the unwaxed lemons and limes, it is better not to use the zest (peel). In that case it is better, you roughly peel of the outside green or yellow peel with a vegetable peeler before you start.
Are you ready? Hands washed? Hair tied back? Chef hats on? Aprons on?

Here we go!
Nearly there, keep going!
Little note on the way, if you use caster sugar, not honey, you don’t need to use the blender to mix it in, simply add and stir, it will dissolve easily.
Now chill the lemonade and add a few slices of lemon, a few leaves of mint or a few raspberries to serve to make it look pretty.

- 2 unwaxed lemons
- 1 unwaxed lime
- 100 grams of runny honey
- 1 liter (sparkling) water
- Carefully wash the lime and lemons. (peel the outer layer of if your fruit is not unwaxed because it would contain too much chemicals you don't want in your lemonade)
- Roughly cut the fruit into chunks.
- Bring the fruit chunks in the blender or food processor and add some of your water until the fruit is covered.

- Now have your pouring jug and sieve ready.
- Then pour in your lemon-lime mixture and pour it through the sieve in the pouring jug.
- Rinse out the blender or container of the food processor.
- Pour the sieved lemonade into the container again and add the honey.
- Blend really well again for the honey to be mixed.
- Take the bottle(s) ready and put the funnel on top.
- If you are using one big bottle: pour all the juice in the bottle and top up with the rest of the water.
- If you are using two bottles, fill them up evenly with the juice and top up evenly with the rest of the water.
- Ready, enjoy!
