Natural Lemonade with 1 Carb Per Serving: T1D Approved!

Natural Lemonade with 1 Carb Per Serving: T1D Approved! Natural Lemonade with 1 Carb Per Serving: T1D Approved!

Switch out the sugary lemonade and sodas for the delicious natural lemonade alternative with True Citrus Lemonade. As a Type 1 Diabetic mom, this is an answer to prayer. I can’t serve my kids sugar-loaded lemonade (nobody should!) and I’ve had a hard time finding a lemonade with low carbs to serve my kids. Generally, lemonade is either loaded with sugar or with artificial sugar and chemicals. Yuck!

My family LOVES True Citrus lemonade and limeade in several flavors, made with citrus juices and oils and a touch of stevia.

Natural Lemonade with 1 Carb Per Serving: T1D Approved!

I was introduced to True Lemon back in 2011. I enjoyed their single-serve lemonade packets as well as their lemon and lime crystallized juice packets. Since then, I regularly purchase the lemon and lime packets to use in place of fresh squeezed lemon/lime juice in recipes.

All True Citrus Products:

  • are made with simple & clean ingredients
  • are made with real citrus juices and oils
  • have low calories (0 to 10 calories per serving)
  • have low sugar (0 to 1 gram per serving)
  • contain NO artificial sweeteners, flavors, preservatives, gluten or sodium

My kids were both diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in third grade (4 years ago for my son and 2 years ago for my daughter).  This turned our world upside down. I can’t tell you how many times I cried or nearly cried while shopping at the grocery store, trying to find low carb drinks and food for my kids that weren’t loaded with artificial sugars. It is a nightmare.  I purchased another brand of lemonade for a long time because it was 0 carbs and available in a pitcher pack. Since we drink a LOT of lemonade, I didn’t see it was possible to use True Citrus’ individual packets.

I’m so thrilled that True Citrus offer family size 2 quart pitcher packets in a number of flavors: True Lemon Original Lemonade, True Lemon Raspberry Lemonade, True Lemon Peach Lemonade, True Lime Black Cherry Limeade, and True Lime Watermelon Aqua Fresca.

One packet equal 2 quarts of refreshing, healthy lemonade and limeade for your family. It is real fresh squeezed fruit flavor in every sip. It is a great way to switch from sugary lemonades and soft drinks to a healthier, yet still sweet drink. You might be surprised at what is lurking in the drinks you give your family, including other flavored water drinks!  Compare your current lemonade  to True Lemon and you are sure to make the switch like I did.

I use to serve my family Crystal Light Lemonade, I learned that it is filled with artificial ingredients, artificial flavors, preservatives and is GMO – same goes fro Country Time Lemonade. True Lemon is made with simple and clean ingredients with NO artificial ingredients or flavors, no preservatives and is Non-GMO.

To say that True Citrus lemonades and limeades are Heaven-sent is not exaggerating. If you are a Type 1 Diabetic Mom, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Finding a low-carb, delicious tasting and good-for-you drink to give your diabetic children is no easy task.  I love that my kids can reach for a glass of lemonade at anytime of day without worrying about counting carbs or giving themselves insulin for it.

Whether you are Type 1 Diabetic or not, drinking water is important for your overall health. Many people, especially children don’t like drinking plain water. True Citrus products can help you and your family get the recommended servings of water per day with a tasty, fruity option!

True Citrus products are available nationwide at Walmart, Target, Kroger, and the retailers. Find a local retailer here. Print a True Citrus coupon here.  I haven’t been able to find a local retailer that sells the family size pitcher packets yet so I order them from the True Citrus website or on
