Extremely Low-No Calorie Mint Lemonade


Here is a recipe I just tried and thought I would share........Extremely Low-No Calorie Lemonade. I originally stole the recipe from Food.com and then altered it to make it essentially calorie free.

Ingredients:
8 cups of water
1 1/2 cups of fresh squeezed lemon juice (I tried to hand squeeze 3 lemons and wound up with 1 cup so I cheated with pre-squeezed lemon juice to make up the difference. I won't tell if you do the same for some or ALL of it)
1 1/2 cups of granulated Splenda (switched sugar for Splenda)

A few mint leaves (my idea)
1 Pitcher (I actually had to go out and buy one to make this)


Directions:
1.) Place 2 cups of water and granulated Splenda in a sauce pan.
2.) Heat until Splenda dissolves.
3.) Pour Splenda Water, lemon juice and remaining 6 cups of water into pitcher.
4.) Add mint leaves to taste (and because they look pretty).
