Lemonade conjures up refreshing thoughts of an icy glass, condensation dripping down your arm with each sip -- just what you need after about two minutes outside in the summer.
However, as we have talked about before, we all need to cut back on sugary drinks -- but lemonade would be impossible to drink without sugar or at least a sweetener. So off to the powdered drink mix aisle I went to investigate new products and happily I discovered two unique and improved products.
The great thing about both of these products is that they use turmeric for color instead of artificial coloring. All in all, this fits the bill for that tall glass of lemonade that I just have to have during the dog days of summer!
