I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for the SPLENDA® Brand. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. All opinions and reviews are my own.
We absolutely love summer in New Jersey. It feels so wonderful to get outside and enjoy the warm weather again. Spending time outdoors is so nourishing to the body and soul. After a long winter hibernating indoors, we can finally be out and active again.
One of our favorite things to do is take long walks and bike rides around the neighborhood with friends and family. It’s a great way to enjoy nature, to unplug from all of the tech gadgets and get some exercise. It’s nice to come back from a walk and enjoy some time together other refreshing drinks and healthy snacks.
Lemonade is a favorite summer drink but it’s often loaded with sugar. We’re trying to cut back on all of that extra sugar but we still enjoy lemonade and I love how this recipe uses SPLENDA® to keep a lid on the sugar without sacrificing on that yummy lemon flavor. This week we tried a new drink recipe called Thirst-Quencher’s Lemonade. I found it online at SweetSwaps.com.
Thirst Quencher’s Lemonade
- 2 slices lemon
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 3-4 mint leaves
- 3 packets SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener
- ½ cup chilled soda water or water
- ¾ cup ice
- Mash lemon slices, lemon juice, mint leaves, and SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener with a spoon in a tall glass until lemon and mint leaves are bruised.
- Stir in soda water/water. Add ice.
After years of using lemonade mixes, I’m a convert. This drink was so refreshing and not overly sweet. The muddled mint adds the perfect flavor. I’m not sure why I never thought of using SPLENDA® Sweetener Products in lemonade, but I’m sure glad I have a delicious recipe to share with friends and family.
