Deliciously Sprinkled

Raspberry Lemonade

Raspberry Lemonade


With swimsuit season in full swing and after stuffing my face last week on vacation with all the goodies, especially the delicious Strawberry Upside Down Cake.

I decided to make a refreshing Raspberry Lemonade that is made with fresh raspberries, freshly squeezed lemons and the zero calorie sweetener, Sweet’N Low.

And after a fun day on the boat, I love enjoying a large glass of this guilt free lemonade.


Raspberry Lemomade


This homemade lemonade is so simple to make, all you need is Sweet’N Low, fresh raspberries, about 6 lemons to squeeze fresh lemon juice, water, and ice cubes. Dissolve the Sweet’N Low and water in a saucepan for about 2-3 minutes, mix in the pureed raspberries and lemon juice. Add the raspberry lemon mixture to a large pitcher of  fresh cold water, and top with ice cubes.

Pour yourself a glass and top with a couple extra raspberries and a lemon slice, oh and a cute straw is a must. Enjoy!

    I’m glad that you have sponsors, but in the nutritional world, we call the little  pink sweet n low packs, “death packs”. Splenda isn’t great, but it is a bit better than “Sweet n Low”. Regular sugar or a natural cane sugar substitute would be a better choice. Aside from the nutritional info, the raspberry lemonade looks wonderful and I will definitely be giving it a try, for my next get together.

    Hey, I’m from Germany and have never heard of something called “Sweet’n Low” but would really love to try your recipe. What is that stuff? What would you substitute it with, in case I can’t get my hands onto that stuff. Thanks in advance, Frannie

      You can just use regular granulated sugar instead of Sweet’N Low.

    This looks delicious! I’m not even a huge fan of blueberries, but I really can’t wait to try out this recipe. I just started making my own fresh lemonade last summer, so this will be a nice addition.

    Jenn I agree, a paper straw is a must! I have a whole paper straw collection that I use as blog props, but unfortunately that means I never actually get to drink out of them!
