Maple Lemonade

My secret to fab-u-lous lemonade that requires no simple syrup and is ready in minutes?


Maple syrup is where you want to be! No melting sugar, no waiting for cool down time. Just add, seal and shake, then pour over ice and enjoy.



You don’t have any 2 quart (half-gallon) canning jars loitering in your kitchen? You should 😉 They work really well in the refrigerator for teas and lemonade, although I don’t let Walker pour from them (when he is older he can!)


Maple Lemonade


  • 2 large lemons (½ cup juice)
  • 6 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 8 cups cold water


Scrub lemons under warm water, dry off and juice, straining out seeds and pulp. Add lemon juice, maple syrup and water together, seal and shake.

Best served over ice!

Makes 2 quarts + lemonade.

So the lid thing? Yep, I came into possession of a Cuppow lid at Vida Vegan Con. It was in the swag bag from Vegan Cuts. They work quite well and I’d recommend them!





  1. Oh, I agree! Male syrup is the ONLY sweetener I use! Looks so refreshing!

  2. Great idea! I made lemonade with honey last summer, and the honey was a bit too overpowering. I’ll try maple syrup next time.

  3. Reblogged this on queenofshebaformulary.

  4. I will definitely be making this! I needed a good lemonade recipe that didn’t use regular ol’ sugar!

  5. I love the Cupow lid! What a great idea (why didn’t I think of that…). I’ll bet the maple adds a nice smoky flavor, too. Yum!

  6. My daughter will love you.

    • I was drinking it at the gym this morning and my trainer was “EWWWW! Maple syrup?” He needs to get out more and open up his taste buds 😉

  7. This is brilliant! Def making it, thank you!

  8. Waw, what an easy to make home-made lemonade & so refreshing looking too! 🙂 Yummm! I can’t wiat to make this, sipping it on my terrace in the sunshine,….!

  9. I made it today & it was divine,…….:) x
