Diabetic Lemonade

gluten free blueberry muffins almond flourAs I recently have a little time, I was browsing on the web a few days ago. Attempting to find fresh, fascinating ideas, inspirational dishes that I have never tasted before, to delight my family with. Hunting for a while unfortunately couldn't come across too many interesting stuff. Right before I thought to give up on it, I found this yummy and easy dessert by accident over ambitiouskitchen. It looked so fabulous on its snapshot, it called for instant actions.
It absolutely was not difficult to imagine just how it's created, how it tastes and how much my hubby will enjoy it. Actually, it is rather simple to delight the man in terms of cakes. Yes, I am a lucky one. Or possibly he is.Anyway, I visited the site and then followed the detailed instuctions which were combined with impressive pictures of the operation. It just makes life much easier. I could suppose it's a bit of a hassle to shoot snap shots in the middle of baking in the kitchen as you may most often have sticky hands thus i pretty appreciate the time and energy she put in to build this post and recipe easily implemented.
With that in mind I'm empowered presenting my own, personal dishes in a similar fashion. Many thanks the concept.
I had been fine tuning the initial formula to make it for the taste of my family. I have to say that it was a great success. They prized the flavor, the overall look and enjoyed getting a sweet like this in the middle of a busy workweek. They basically wanted more, a lot more. So the next occasion I am not going to make the same mistake. I am gonna double the amount .

Talk about a great "sweet tooth fixer" for summer time!
We have been in the heat of June, and my hubby is a total soda pop addict. He sneaks "the real stuff" when I'm not watching (that is like consuming poison for a diabetic), however the sugar substitutes in the diet soda aren't healthy, either.
Before I leave the subject of soda, I have to let you know that Shasta's diet sodas are created with Splenda. It's very difficult to find diet plan sodas sweetened with Splenda, so imagine my pleasure to discover a whole type of diet plan soda pop sweetened with Splenda! Shasta is a common brand - I have no idea if it's available in the eastern state governments, but it's well worth finding (or ordering online) if you cannot still find it where you live. A nurse told us that Splenda is way better for you personally (or should we say "less poor") than the additional sugar substitutes. I've dealt with enough medical visitors to know you have to take everything they say using a grain of sodium (or sugar, in cases like this), but for my money, Splenda sits very good. I'm pretty delicate to artificial anything, and Splenda doesn't trouble me or make me ill.
OK, back to the diabetic lemonade. This is this easy, quick drink to make. If you have a naughty diabetic in your daily life like I do (lately, my hubby has been obsessed with gummy worms - I swear, he selects to fixate on foods with optimum carbs!! That is why my following post will be low-carb gummy worms), if you have a naughty diabetic, this sugary (and carb-best gluten free muffin recipes!) beverage will satisfy those nice cravings.
Notice: Distilled drinking water is GREAT for decreasing high blood sugar fast. I maintain gallons of it in the house at all times (like I stated, I live with a naughty diabetic. We often have to perform some crisis blood sugar lowering). So you can use distilled drinking water with this formula if you want to. I just used plain tap water (we live in the united states - don't try that in the city!!) and it turned out fine.
1/2 gallon water
1 cup lemon juice (the store-bought kind within the bottle has no carbs!!)
1 cup Splenda (add pretty much according to your tastes. NOTE: Generic alternative Splenda, just like the Walmart brand, works just great)
Add the lemon juice and Splenda to your water and mix very well. (I put everything within a gallon jug and shook it up - helps it be appearance foamy!) Adjust the lemon juice and Splenda to your taste. This isn't rocket technology and you are not going to be graded - it's completed when you prefer how it preferences!
Keep this chilly and handy at the front of your fridge, as well as the naughty (or sluggish...) diabetic in your life will reach for this low-carb lemonade instead of a taboo soda or juice. If you a really naughty diabetic, don't tell him (or her) that is normally diabetic lemonade - allow him (or her) think it's "the true stuff" and they'll believe they got away with cheating on the diet. ;-)
Diabetic lemonade!
