What non-alcoholic beverage that is highly refreshing and not too sweet comes to your mind on a hot summer day? We won’t be surprised if it’s a lemonade. Nothing screams summer more than this light and delicious drink! That’s why so many beverage brands have one or several lemonade products to offer. So, if you feel like enjoying a glass of lemonade, just go to a nearby grocery store and grab one from the fridge, right? Nope, not really if you have diabetes. A glass of that lemonade may bring you more than 50 g of carbs and that is something your body won’t appreciate very much.

Instead, to be safe and still enjoy a glass or two of lemonade, your best bet is to make lemonade at home. This way you will have total control of the ingredients of your drink and the variety that you can come up with can easily compete with the lemonade variety of the major brands. Besides, it doesn’t take a professional bartender to make the drinks! There are so many recipes that are out there at your disposal. Plus, after following a couple of them, you may very possible get inspired to mix something on your own and impress your family and friends with your diabetes-friendly creation.

Here are a few of our favorite lemonades for you to enjoy.
