Recipe description


To prepare your homemade lemonade, you will need: 

-A lemon juicer 

-A fine mesh strainer

-A large jug or a glass pitcher to give it a vintage touch

-A wooden spoon or a spatula


Servings: 4 people
  • The key ingredients: 4/5 medium and fresh lemons
  • 80 g of sugar or sweetener
  • 500 ml of water
  • Ice
  • Mint leaves for decoration (optional)

Preparation Method

Step 1: Select the lemons

For a delightful lemonade, choose fresh and juicy lemons. Look for firm fruits with shiny skin, and avoid those too hard or wrinkled. Squeeze the freshness! 🍋 

Step 2: We squeeze

If you have a Zummo automatic juicer, you can juice lemons with almost all our models. Our kits are designed to juice all kinds of citrus fruits. Thanks to our EVS System, lemon juicing is just like manual but without mess or fatigue. Split the fruit in half, and it never comes into contact with the peel when juicing. Ensure the purest and best-tasting juice! 

Step 3: We sweeten

Add the sugar to the lemon juice and mix well with a wooden spoon or spatula until the sugar has completely dissolved. 

If you prefer to make homemade lemonade without sugar, you can substitute the sugar for any sweetener you like, such as honey, stevia, agave or maple syrup.

Step 4: Almost there

Next, add the 500 ml of cold water to the lemon juice with the sugar or sweetener that we have chosen. Again, stir very well until all the ingredients are well mixed. Our homemade lemonade is almost ready! 

Step 5: We enjoy a refreshing lemonade

Now, we just have to try the lemonade and adjust the amount of sugar or sweetener and water according to our taste. 

If the lemonade is too sharp, we can add more sugar or sweetener. Of course, without putting in too much! 

But if we have made it too sweet, we will add more water.

And now comes the super refreshing final touch… 

We put the ice in the jar and immediately pour the lemonade on the ice. Again, we mix it thoroughly and put it in the fridge so that it stays cold until it is time to drink it.

Our delicious homemade lemonade is ready! 

If we want, we can add decoration and aromas with fresh mint sticks and leaves (optional). We serve it in tall glasses with more ice. Enjoy!
