Juice and Sugar

Juice has two health connotations: On the one hand it has been preached as an easy way to get some fruits and/or vegetables into your diet. On the more truthful side, however, juices tend to contain an extremely excessive amount of sugar and what does sugar turn into when you consume it in excess? Fat.

So if you're a juice lover, what is a delicious way to cut the sugar without diluting your beverage? Here is a recipe for easy Strawberry Lemonade with less sugar:

  1. Add frozen strawberries to tumbler/cup-these will act as ice cubes that won't dilute your drink as they are cooling it, plus they will infuse into your lemonade to give it an added sweet strawberry flavor.
  2. Fill tumbler/cup 1/4 of the way with your favorite bottled lemonade or lemonade made from concentrate.
  3. Fill the rest of the tumbler/cup with cold water.
This is a delicious and refreshing beverage that I love to take to work or a day at the beach without feeling guilty about drinking too much sugar. Enjoy!

Xoxo, Keely
