Food Factor: Honey Sweetened Lemonade

By Ms. Natasha Haynes, MSU Extension Service


Warm weather means it’s lemonade season! Well, if you want to know the truth, I can drink lemonade year-round. It’s a refreshing treat any time of year.


You can easily change the flavor of this lemonade by adding your favorite fruit. I love to add sliced frozen strawberries.
