  • Note 1: Stevia can be used to make the ginger lemonade.
  • Note 1A: I do not love overly sweet beverages. You can add more if needed. Please remember to adjust calories to reflect any adjustments
  • Note 2: No need to peel the ginger. Just slice it thin and I even break those in half to release the ginger flavor.
  • Note 2A: I love ginger so I tend to add 3-4 ounces. Start with the lower amount and you can always add more ginger.
