Strawberry Lemonade

My son is like a camel… Seriously, the amount of water and juice consumed by this kid is outrageous! I am constantly trying to come up with new drinks to keep on hand just to keep up with the high demand of my three year old. While water is my number one choice, Lemonade is a close second.

Why? Mainly because of how easy it is to make. And then there is the added fact that I am in control of exactly how much sugar goes into the drink. If I can get my hands on a good batch of lemons, the sugar level is basically non-existent. {Don’t worry… it’s still plenty sweet}. However, occasionally I want something a little different. That is when the Strawberry Sauce  I posted about a few days ago really comes in handy. I mentioned that you can use it as a topping for a variety of desserts, but what I didn’t mention is how easy it is to add a new twist on your favorite drinks!

Just a little bit mixed in really adds a nice new flavor, which keeps me, and the camel, very happy.

How pretty is that? It is making my mouth water just thinking about how easy, and amazing this recipe is!

One of the nice things about this recipe is that it stops this from happening:

Oh yes… that is my child slurping up the water from his slip & slide… I realized that me flipping out in disgust only further encouraged him. Apparently it’s hilarious to a boy when he manages to gross out his mom. Guess I have a lot to learn about being the mom to a boy!
