sunshine, picnics and lemonade

Today my little ones and I all had a very homemade picnic. We ate homemade pizza and drank homemade lemonade in the tree house that my husband handmade for the girls. Our little ones love getting involved in making things. I think it's so important for them to understand and appreciate the time and effort that goes into making things. Lemonade is a favourite in this household. It's super easy to make! Would you like to make some too?

You will need:
* 4 lemons
* 4 cups of boiling water
* sugar or sweetener (we use stevia) to taste.

Makes 6-8 litres

Remove the zest from the lemons and place in the boiling water for a few hours (it's best if you leave this overnight).
Juice the lemons and add to the lemon zest mix. Pop in some sugar or sweetener to taste. It should taste quite strong at this point. Now just dilute this mixture to as strong or weak as you like with water or mineral water! Enjoy! xx


  1. What a great recipe can't wait to try it! One question though, so it is best to leave the zest into boiling water and then let it sit and cool for a few hours or boil it for a few hours?

  2. Pop it into the boiling water & leave to cool. Might re-word the recipe :-) hope you like your lemonade x

  3. Sounds so yummy. And that pizza looks amazing as well.

  4. I found your blog through the Oh So Lovely Vintage girls blog, just thought I'd say hello! That pizza looks absolutely delicious btw.
