My husband loves those diet drink packets that you pour into a bottle of water. One day my daughter was making lemonaide and we made it with Splenda® because of my diabetes. When my husband came home, he was delighted by how good it tasted.
I came up with this variation on the lemonaide mix that he can take in his lunchbox and mix with water. He says he likes it just as well as the packets, and I’m sure we’re saving money with it. I can hardly wait to try some flavor variations!!!
- 1 cup lemon juice
- 1 cup Splenda® (if you aren’t on a diet, you can use sugar!)
That’s it. Mix this together and store it in a small pitcher in the refrigerator. I pour it into Tupperware® midgets to transport, but any small, liquid tight container will do. He uses about an ounce of the mix to a glass of water, but you can add more/less for your taste. (One midget gives him the same amount as two packets of the powdered drink mix.)
