“I was invited to be a brand representative for Sweet’N Low® and have been compensated for this post for SocialStars. All opinions are my own.” I’ve created the ultimate Sweet’N Low® Strawberry Lemonade recipe #donthesitaste the whole family will love as part of a sponsored post for SocialStars.

Fresh Strawberry Lemonade

I’ve lightened up the classic lemonade recipe by using Sweet’N Low® as a zero-calorie sweetener. Fresh fruit compliments the tangy taste of lemonade. I’ve paired strawberries, blueberries and green apples with it to give it the perfect amount of sweetness.

The 4th of July is the one day of the year to get family and friends together for fireworks, parades and backyard barbecues all while eating delicious food and sipping on cold beverages. This strawberry lemonade is the perfect festive drink to celebrate the holiday with. Fire up the grill and pour a glass lemonade. Enjoy the sweetness you love without the extra calories.

Easy Strawberry Lemonade
  • Do I have to use Sweet’ N Low® to make Homemade Strawberry Lemonade?

    No, you don’t have to use Sweet’ N Low® to make this Strawberry Lemonade recipe. Sweet’ N Low® is used in this recipe as a sugar substitute to reduce the calorie content of the drink. However, you can substitute it with another sweetener of your choice.

    If you prefer natural sweeteners, you can use honey, agave nectar, or pure maple syrup.

  • Is there an adult version of Strawberry Lemonade?

    Absolutely, there are many ways to turn this into a Spiked Strawberry Lemonade.

    Vodka: This is a classic choice for a reason. It mixes well with the flavors of the lemonade without overpowering them. Start with 1 to 1.5 ounces of vodka per serving and adjust to taste.

    Rum: White rum can add a tropical twist to your lemonade. Dark rum will provide a deeper, more caramel-like flavor.

    Tequila: If you’re a fan of margaritas, you might enjoy your strawberry lemonade with a splash of tequila.

    Champagne or Prosecco: For a bubbly version, reduce the amount of water in the recipe and replace it with an equal amount of your favorite sparkling wine.

    Gin: The botanicals in gin can complement the fruit flavors in the lemonade quite well.

  2. I love lemonade, but never liked having to take the time to make the simple syrup to make it from scratch. Plus knowing how much sugar goes into it! This looks like a great lower calorie take on an old favorite. And I love the twist of adding the blueberries and green apples to the strawberries.
