A perfect accompaniment for a summer barbeque, lemonade is refreshing and tasty whilst being popular for all ages.

Lemons promote detoxification and are rich in vitamin C and bioflavanoids.

By making your own lemonade you’ll gain health benefits whilst avoiding high levels of sugar which are commonly found in commercial varieties.
