Everybody knows how to make traditional lemonade from fresh lemons, water, sweetener and ice. But how about trying something different? Yesterday, I made a perfect summer berry lemonade that was almost zero-carb and still had an amazing taste using just natural ingredients — no artificial sweeteners and no colourings.
The simple rule is to use frozen berries. Using fresh berries wouldn't release as much juice and unless you squeeze them, your lemonade would taste dull. Try this simple way to save extra carbs and great even for those that are calorie-conscious! :-)
