Reviews & ratingsAverage global rating:(3)
Making cocktails (or great mocktails) at home can be a hassle. Not so with sparkling lemonade, which takes care of the soda water, sweetener, and citrusy element all in one go. Everyday drinks pair well here pour equal amounts red wine and sparkling together for a Spanish-inspired spritzer, or try with light beer as the Germans do. These low ABV alternatives are great for long summer afternoons or hot evening barbecues. Or make a special non-alcoholic version with pomegranate juice. It's tart, tasty, and sure to be a poolside favorite.

Our Favorite Zero Sugar, Low Calorie Lemonade Recipe is Quick and Easy to Make
There’s nothing like a glass of delicious lemonade in hot weather, but all that sugar can really add calories. Most low calorie lemonade recipes just don’t taste good enough to replace the full sugar version, but this one with freshly squeezed lemon juice avoids the “diet” taste so you can enjoy as much as you want without worrying about your blood sugar or your waistline.
Plus, we could all do with more vitamin C to give our immune system every chance it can get. Something cool and refreshing to drink is a treat we deserve, especially if it has no calories. Well, maybe not zero calories, but practically zero. The juice from one lemon has 11 tiny calories.
I developed this recipe this summer, because I started making myself a fresh lemonade every night as a way to break my nightly wine habit. Every day around 6 p.m., I found myself really craving something special to drink, as a relaxing transition to “home time” after my workday ended.
Enter this homemade no-calorie lemonade recipe that I developed through trial and error, until I got it just right. Follow this simple recipe and you won’t be disappointed. Even my 14 year old son will make this for himself every day, and that sure beats drinking soda, doesn’t it?
The beauty of this recipe is that the fresh squeezed lemons make the “stevia taste” disappear, giving you a taste that’s like real sugar, but without the calories.
No Sugar Lemonade Ingredients and Supplies
- Fresh lemons – you can’t make this with bottled lemon juice, it just doesn’t taste the same
- Ice – I prefer crushed ice if you can get that
- Water (Pro Tip: If you have a Sodastream, carbonated water makes it even better!)
- Organic stevia
- Lemon squeezer – This gets so much more juice than hand squeezing your lemons. That’s important for the taste! OXO makes a great one.
Method for Making Our Low Calorie Lemonade Recipe
To make fresh lemonade follow these steps. This is for a single serving recipe, so if you are making it for more people just multiply. This recipe makes around 14 ounces.
Step 1 – Cut one lemon in half down the middle (and not end to end).
Step 2 – Juice the lemon right into your glass using the juice press. This gets so much more juice out of the lemon.
Step 3 – Stir in one teaspoon of Pyure Organic All-Purpose Stevia Blend until dissolved. I really like this specific brand because it’s natural and it has less after taste than other sweeteners. Once you put in the real lemons, it doesn’t taste diet!
Step 4 – Add 12 ounces of water and stir. We make lots of carbonated water using our Soda Stream. If you add carbonated water it makes this even better, but you don’t have to use fizzy water.
Step 5 – Add crushed ice and stir to combine.
Step 6 – Enjoy
Upgrade Your Low Calorie Lemonade With These
Try adding one of these ingredients to your lemonade to take it up a notch.
- Fresh mint leaves or any other fresh herb that you like
- Add a few crushed raspberries
- Mix lime juice with the lemon juice
- Add in a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
- Add vodka to taste
- Dip the rim of your glass in lemon juice and sugar

Why You’ll Love This Lemonade
Easy and Versatile. This is a quick and easy recipe for my favorite summer drink! Make it by the glass, or scale the recipe up to make a big pitcher of homemade lemonade.
Just as Sweet as You Like. Do you like your lemonade sweeter? Add more simple syrup. Do you prefer it on the tart side? Add less syrup or more lemon juice!
TIP: Simple syrup is usually made with a 1:1 ratio of water and sugar, although you can adjust the ratio for a more or less sweet syrup.

- 1 cup hulled strawberries (about 6 ounces), plus sliced and/or whole berries for garnish
- 1 (1-liter) bottle sparkling pink lemonade
- 2 (12 ounce) bottles ginger beer
- Mint sprigs for garnish
Place strawberries in a large glass measuring cup mash with a muddler or wooden spoon until very juicy. Transfer the mixture to a fine-mesh strainer set over a bowl press firmly to express as much juice as possible. (Save the solids for another use.)
Combine the strawberry juice, lemonade and ginger beer in a large pitcher. Serve over ice in tall glasses. Garnish with sliced and/or whole berries and mint sprigs, if desired.
Before we discuss adding fruit flavors to our homemade lemonade. We need to perfect our fundamental Homemade Lemonade.
All you’ll need are a few essentials:
- Lemons: We’ll need 2 cups of lemon juice in the end.
- Sugar: It’s just plain granulated sugar. Equal amounts of lemon juice and sugar are required. We’ll whisk the 2 cups of sugar into the lemon juice until the sugar dissolves, and we have a beautiful Lemon Syrup.
- Water: It’s ideal to use cold water, therefore we’ll use 5 cups.
- Ice: 2 cups will immediately cool our Homemade lemonade while also diluting it slightly, which is exactly what we want. It’s a strong lemonade.
To prepare your homemade lemonade, combine the lemon juice and sugar in a mixing bowl and whisk until the sugar has dissolved. When you stop whisking, no sugar should settle to the bottom. It will just take a few minutes to do this task. Your syrup should be thicker than water when finished, and there should be some volume in the liquid.
After that, combine the water with the Lemon Syrup, and then add the ice. It’s time to sip the lemonade! Let’s get started with some fruit flavorings.

What You Will Need To Make This Matcha Lemonade
Matcha green tea powder
When it comes to matcha green tea powder, I always look for certified organic matcha. I also look for ceremonial grade matcha with third-party testing done for heavy metals, microbes, pesticides, radiation, and more. Because of where the matcha is grown, third-party testing is necessary to ensure you get the premium quality matcha you paid for. You don't need to buy the most expensive matcha, but find one with a bright green hue and tastes good to you.
To make this ice matcha lemonade, you will need to dissolve the matcha powder with a small amount of hot water. Once it is dissolved, you can add it to cold water. The best way to dissolve matcha powder is to sift your matcha using a fine mesh tea strainer. Straining the powder allows the matcha powder to dissolve easier in water without forming any clumps. You can then whisk your matcha mixture until you get a good layer of froth. If you have a frother available at home, you can use your frother wand instead.
And because matcha green tea does contain caffeine, this matcha lemonade is best to be enjoyed during the day.
Freshly squeezed Lemon Juice
If you never had matcha before, they can taste a very bitter and earthy note. If you picked a matcha that you don't love, this matcha lemonade recipe would help to add flavors to it without you having to throw out unwanted matcha (especially when matcha can be so expensive).
With some lemon juice and lime juice, it can really balance out these strong notes of matcha and give it a refreshing taste. These citrus juice can tone down the bitterness and mellow out the earthiness.
If you would like to have a sweeter matcha lemonade without adding added sugar like simple syrup or refined sugar, you can use pink lemon instead. Pink lemon is an excellent alternative to traditional lemons as they are naturally sweeter.
You can either use fresh lemon and squeeze it yourself or purchase store bought freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
I used half of a lime to give the matcha lemonade an even more bright and vibrant taste. Lime juice can give your matcha lemonade a zesty and tart taste to the matcha lemonade. If you are not a lime lover, you can opt out of this or add a slice of fresh lime instead.
To sweeten my matcha lemonade, I used maple syrup in this matcha lemonade recipe. You can use other sweeteners or your personal favorite.
Some of the healthier sweeteners you can use to make this matcha lemonade are honey, dates syrup, coconut sugar, and molasses. If you are planning on using textured sugar like coconut sugar, you should dissolve it with the matcha in hot water or else your matcha lemonade has an even sweetness.
Add color and texture
To give the matcha lemonade a more appealing color and texture, add other fruits or herbs. For this recipe, I added sliced lime, mint, and blueberry. But, feel free to add your favorite herbs and fruits to give the drink pop.
