This simple recipe for home made sugar free Lemonade was given to us by Sinead Ni Ghealbhain.  It really couldn’t be easier. 

Don’t worry about Xylitol – although it sounds like a nasty artificial sweetener its actually perfectly natural & very low GI.  This makes this recipes suitable for diabetics.


150g Xylitol
150ml Water
Juice of 3 Lemons
500ml of Still or Sparkling water


1. Add the xylitol and 150ml water to a small pan. Dissolve to xylitol in the water, bring the mixture to the boil and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Set aside to cool.

2. When the syrup is cool place it in a large jug with the juice of 3 large lemons.

3. Top up with 500ml of still or sparkling water.

4. Enjoy!
