Refreshing Summer Cocktail


Here at Healthy Eating at Trader Joe’s we believe nothing is off limits! Even if you’re on a weight loss journey, it’s okay to enjoy a cocktail once in a while.

This delicious summer cocktail is quick & easy to make.

Most pre-made lemonades are loaded with sugar and other artificial ingredients. But Trader Joe’s Low Calorie Lemonade is made with cane sugar and stevia, and doesn’t contain any dyes. Plus, an 8-ounce serving has only 40 calories and 9 grams of sugar.

This lemonade is light, refreshing, and tart. You can enjoy it on its own without alcohol or follow the recipe below for a zesty cocktail with a kick!
