Can I Use an Alternative Sweetener or Make it Without Sugar?

Absolutely! If you are watching your sugar intake, you can easily reduce the amount of sugar in both the lemonade and strawberry syrup to your preference as well.

You can also replace the sugar with your favorite sugar substitute or honey, if you prefer. The honey will add even another layer of flavor!

If you can find lavender honey, it absolutely is scrumptious in this lemonade.

  11. This sounds fantastic, can’t wait to try. Have you tried this with any sugar substitutes and if so, which ones did you like best? Also you mentioned that if you can find lavender honey, it absolutely is scrumptious in this lemonade. How much honey did you use? Thank you so much for this tasty sounding recipe. Love, Love, Love strawberries and lemonade together.

  12. Hi Robyn! I was just talking to a lady yesterday that has a strawberry farm near me. We were excited about the soon to be strawberries we will be enjoying. I always buy a big ole bunch of berries and can’t eat them fast enough. This will be something to try and use up those delicious berries. I have no doubt this will be a 5-star drink! You know I’m Pinning it! 🙂
