The Best Raspberry Lemonade You’ll Ever Make

This recipe is a twist on one of our favorite childhood drinks. It has all the sweet, tart flavor we grew up loving. But it’s made with virtually no sugar! 

That means you can drink a whole pitcher without any guilt. Even better, it comes together with just four simple ingredients. Unlike store-bought options, this recipe is free from added chemicals and preservatives. And it’s easy to adjust to taste.

Plus, it stores well, meaning you can make a large batch to keep on hand or serve at BBQs and potlucks. One taste, and you’ll be making this easy raspberry lemonade recipe all summer long!

Ingredients 

  • Lemon Juice – Freshly squeezed lemon juice is best, but bottled lemon juice will also work. 
  • Raspberries – Make sure to use fresh tart raspberries! Frozen raspberries won’t have as much flavor. 
  • Sweetener – We use monk fruit sweetener to keep the sugar content minimal. However, granulated sugar will also work. To enhance the raspberry flavor even further, feel free to use raspberry syrup instead.
  • Water – This dilutes the ingredients so the lemonade isn’t super overpowering. 

Recipe Instructions

  1. Cut the lemons in half, and juice them into a half-gallon mason jar
  1. Add the raspberries and ½ cup of water to a blender, and purée until smooth. 
  1. Place a fine mesh sieve over the lemon juice jar. Pour the raspberry mixture into it to catch most of the seeds.
