Because this proved to be just the right amounts of both Splenda and lemon juice for me I'll consider this a valuable reference recipe so that I get it right every time.

I was looking for a home-made lemonade but this one used 9 lemons, which I thought was a lot. It called for Splenda but I replaced that with Truvia as I don't use Splenda and read that one reviewer also did this but I thought it was way too sweet and tasted more like sugar water than lemonade. I will be looking for another home-made lemonade recipe without Splenda and uses less lemons.

This tasted as good as any homemade lemonade I tasted, which surprised me. I love lemonade in the summer, but know it is loaded with sugar, so I don't make it as often as I would like. I used the calculate button and changed the servings to make as many glasses as I wanted. I used Truvia, as I didn't have splenda, and it disolved right in the water. I may have more lemonade this year now when I get the craving.

I did have to make a few adjustments due to running out of Splenda, but it turned out great. Used 1 cup of Splenda and 3/4 cup sugar and followed the recipe otherwise as directed. Made it for our 4th of July celebration and everyone including the kids are raving about it.

I love lemonade, and now I finally know how to make it with Splenda instead of sugar, thank you!

My fourth time making this!! I loved this every time. Twice I made it with store-bought lemon juice and twice I have made it with fresh lemons from my tree! Works great with Splenda and regular sugar.
