Healthy Lemonade is our favorite summertime treat and five of the best healthy lemonade recipe. However:
Store-bought drinks are often nothing more than just empty, sugar-laden calories, and the classic homemade lemonades are not far behind in terms of added sugar. That’s why this week we went on a quest to find lemonades that would be just as refreshing, energizing, and satisfying as “classic” Lemonade but have:
- way less (or zero) sugar
- better balance of flavor
- tons of vitamins and nutrients to benefit your health!
Our search is over, and lo and behold, we have 5 winners. Coming from some of our favorite healthy eating bloggers, below are five of the best homemade lemonades in the game!
The best part? There is little effort and maximum reward because most of these are easy to put together with just a few ingredients.

A healthier take on the classic 3-ingredient Lemonade! If most lemonade recipes are too sweet, pay special attention to this. In addition, turmeric packs a ton of health benefits, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and it has a bitter-ish taste to balance the sweet ingredients. Add as much or as little sweetener as possible for the perfect citrus-turmeric flavor.
