Sugar-Free Herb Lemonade

Recipe courtesy of Leaves of Life

This recipe is easy to make in big batches for a summer crowd. Serve it from a clear drink dispenser to show off the beautiful herbs and keep the stems out of your guests glasses.


  • 1/2  gallon filtered water
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • Stevia to taste
  • Herbs of choice : suggestions include lavender, dill, rosemary, basil and mint


  1. Add  herbs and a small portion of stevia to a clear drink dispenser.
  2. Add lemon juice and water.
  3. Test for desired balance of sweet, tart, and herbs. Adjust ingredients as necessary.


  • Start with a small amount of stevia (either powder or drops)… you can always add more as you go.
  • If using leafy herbs such as mint or basil, add them to your container first and crush the leaves a bit with a muddler. This releases the oils and flavors the lemonade more quickly.
  • If using more delicately sized herbs such as lavender or rosemary, leave the herbs intact on their stem.
