Ingredients (approximate measurements) – Serves 4-6 people
- About 10 small ripe plums, halved and pitted
- 5-7 cups of water, or as needed
- 6-7 lemons ( about 1 cup), or as needed
- sugar to taste
- ice cubes to serve
Note: Keep this idea as a base to customize it to
your taste and requirements. If you like tart lemon taste more, add more
lemon juice. My plums were very sweet hence I added very little sugar.
If you like plums, add more plum juice. Take the pitted plums and
drop them in a food processor.
Grind them smooth. You can use water to grind them too.
Strain the juice.
Add the lemon juice. You can also add more later according to your
taste. Add sugar to taste. Mine were pretty sweet thanks to the ripe
plums hence I would have used probably about 1/4 to 1/2 cup.
Add enough water according to the consistency you require. Make sure
that you add water keeping in mind the ice cubes that you might add
which will melt and add more liquid to the lemonade.
I add ice cubes, garnish with lemon slices and fresh mint. Great for
entertaining and also as a special treat to your kids. Gives a slightly
different tang to the regular lemonade and a a great (read as sneaky)
way to add more fruit to your little one’s diet.
