    I made this tonight just because it looked so good and refreshing….although I did modify it a bit. I used 1 whole carton of 2lb of strawberrys, just rinsed stems intact. Peeled 4 lemons since i used more strawberrys. used about 3 1\2 c water and 3/4 heaping c. sugar. (if I were you I would start at 1\2 c and work up from there adjusting to your taste) and about 2-3 c of ice. I did add the zest bud didn’t measure just zested over the jar til i thought it was good (eyeballed it). this was good after a bit of pinch of sugar here and there just by a tbsp or so….we drank it all up….this would be great if you froze in popsicle trays, and gave them to kids for a treat, and also good with some rum, or alcohol, for an adult treat with more ice for a margarita type of drink….yummy yummy.

    This would be so yummy with lime! Glad you tried it! We didn’t experience the issue with the foam so that’s interesting. Sounds like a good plan to do half the water for the full cycle, though. :)

    How does it only have 0.02g of carbohydrates when it has 17g of sugar per serving?

    It is possible that I had extra ice and strawberries. I didn’t measure them exactly, just tossed some in, lol

    Just made this with lime instead of lemon. Sooo good! I think next time I will blend with only 1/2 of the water for a full cycle, then add the rest. Mine was foaming out the the top of the wide side jar.
