How to Make Lemonade With Agave Nectar

Save

Good, old-fashioned lemonade is a summer tradition. For some folks, it's a year-round drink. Making lemonade with sugar is the standard, but you can make a healthier version of lemonade with agave nectar. Agave nectar is a sweetener made from the same plant used to create tequila. This sweetener is 40% less glycemic than refined sugar, so it's perfect for reducing your sugar consumption.

Things You'll Need

  • 49 ounces of water
  • 8 ounces of concentrated lemon juice
  • 7 ounces of agave nectar

How to Make Lemonade With Agave Nectar

  • Clean a 64 ounce container that has a top, can be shaken, and can be stored easily in a refrigerator.

  • Pour 49 ounces of water into the container.

  • Add 8 ounces of concentrated lemon juice.

  • Add 7 ounces of agave nectar.

  • Shake the mixture as hard as you can. The agave nectar tends to settle on the bottom, so shake to distribute it evenly throughout the lemonade.

  • Taste the lemonade. Add more water or slightly more agave nectar to taste.

Tips & Warnings

  • Add a few sprigs of mint for lively flavor.
  • Shake the container before pouring every glass. Agave nectar can settle.
