You have the ingredients in your house. So if you are grocery shopping with your kid and they ask you to but them a fruit punch, say that you can make lemonade at home. The
great thing is they can’t even taste the difference!!! If you put it in a bottle they would have no idea. But it is so much healthier and more fresh then store bought. Now you know it is freshly squeezed, y’all don’t know how they make those juice boxes. I do admit, I love juice boxes!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are sugary so they are really sweet but this is much better and super refreshing!!!!! It’s summer, its hot its nice to
have a big cold cup of lemonade. Sometimes when you buy lemonade it taste kinda artificial cause there are like 21 grams of added sugar. Its
good but its so sweet and it taste so much like sugar. I love knowing
how much sugar goes into my drinks so I know what I’m feeding my family.
This has sugar so it will be sweet and not bitter. But it is mostly all
natural flavor. It taste great and refreshing! You will be amazed how
much money you can save by making things like pizza, lemonade,and juices
then buying. I am saving $100 each month by buying these things like
seriously! Its pretty awesome!

Y’all know what they say. When life gives you lemons make lemonade!!!!!!! I will be honest, I don’t get that. But I follow itbecause who dose not love lemonade!!!! Really, I have never met any onewho dose not like lemonade. When I go to Chick-Fil-A I still getlemonade and its done in less then a minute. I used to be this powdercalled Cristal light and you put it in a pitcher of cold water and youput the powder in and mix it!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is actually pretty good.But one day I just made homemade lemonade and I stopped buying it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fruit Punch

Summer!! Hot, humid, a great time for a refreshing drink! I lo0ve fruit punch. Always have, always will.  Its such a refreshing classic drink! No matter how old I get, I will always drink it!! When I was younger I drank it all the time just to make my tongue red! I was and still am crazy! OMG!! Guess what! I got this new short that I am wearing at this very moment that says “don’t let anyone ever dull your sparkle”! You gotta admit, that is awesome! The shirt is kinda big but I am wearing these new white shorts that are adorable. So now that you know my fashion statement, lets talk more about the punch! I got the idea to put this recipe up when I was at a pool party and they had Hawiian punch! I used to drink that all the time! So I decided to put up a less sugar fruit punch and see how it goes! I made this for a 8 year old birthday party. I put them in these plastic cups that looked like Wine glasses. I put water on the edges and dipped it in sugar to make it look pretty. The orginal recipe had4 cups of sugar. I changed it because there is no need for the much in my opinion. I reduced it and added more sherbert. I actually changed this recipe a lot. Its much healthier and less sugary!! This is great for ant type of party! Or, you can just make it on a ordinary day It is so refreshing! It has a fresh fruit flavor and my god is it good!With some ice!! Best time of your life. I love hanging in my pool drinking a glass of this stuff! YUM YUM YUM!!! Life is short, make sure you try this before it ends!! That sounded dramatic but you get the point. Now, this makes 40 servings! Its a lot! When I first made this I  had no idea how much it made.  Imagine my face when I finished it! It wads gone in a day though. My whole family loves it!!!  Then they begged me to make more! We had 80 servings of fruit punch in like 2 days!! There really isn’t much to  say about this besides its amazing so make it!
