Not Your Everyday Lemonade Stand

Summertime in my family means lots of lemonade. Anything easy to hydrate the kids that's not soda and full of sugar is OKAY with me.

Our FAVORITE drink WAS Crystal Light Lemonade and the delish Chick-fil-A Lemonade with Splenda.  Oh how I thought I found the perfect drink. Until.....(que sound effects.....dun, dun, dun) 
I schooled myself on artificial sweeteners.  

Don't despair, we have brought back lemonade and I am here to share it with you. You will need lemon juice. I purchase organic lemon juice from Costco. Water. I use the wonderful reverse osmosis water from my well. Sweetener.  Your choices are stevia, xylitol, maple syrup, honey.  

My typical mix is 1 Cup Lemon Juice to 6 Cups Water
Sweeten to taste.

Flap Jack Friday

Like magic

I just turned my protein shake in to pancakes.  

2 scoops (1 serving) Arbonne Essentials Vanilla Protein Powder
1 scoop Arbonne Daily Fiber Boost
1 Egg
1/8 ts of baking powder
Almond Milk - I didn't measure this but slowly added (as I stirred this all together) until I got the consistency of pancake batter. Probably 1/4 C ish.

Put it all in a small bowl. I used my 1C glass Pyrex measuring cup.
Blend with fork.

Heat skillet and pour out like a pancake.

It won't bubble up like other pancakes, so just watch them and flip them when ready.
