This morning, when I got to the market, the delicious scent of fresh strawberries was floating in the air. It smelled so good that it almost made me forget what I went for. I decided to make strawberry jam as a birthday gift for my grandmother, so I bought two large cartons.

On the way home, however, the excessive heat made me change my mind: I would make strawberry lemonade instead.

Those who have been following us since the beginning of Three Times a Day might have noticed that I often replace sugar with a natural sweeteners, such as honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar. That way, my conscience is clear, and I find it tastes better, to boot. So here’s my sugar-free strawberry lemonade recipe!
