How to Make Sweet Iced Cherry Lemonade Without Sugar

2014-06 Iced Cherry LemonadeTXTSM

For my kids, half the fun of summer is carnival treats. It’s roller coasters, and cotton candy, and mom paying $5 for a sugary ice lemonade at the local amusement park. Sugar is all fun and games for them, but I’m left with a crowd of whiney kids stuck with a sugar crash midway through the day. So, this year, we’re revamping some of our favorite carnival classics at home. This pretty recipe takes all the fun of cherry lemonade, swirls it into a sugarless icy treat, and is served with a pretty paper straw.

The kids think this recipe is splendid, and I think it’s brilliant. It may be the coolest way ever to keep the kids sipping healthy this summer. And bonus: It costs just pennies to make, more than worth the $5 I used to spend on iced lemonades. Looks like mom is the blue ribbon prizewinner when it comes to carnival eats this year!
