  • 12 oz. fresh raspberries
  • 7 cups water
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup honey (or any unprocessed sweetener you prefer - I used a 1/4 cup honey and some stevia)
US Customary - Metric


  1. Combine the raspberries with 1 cup of the water (the rest of the water will create your lemonade in a few steps).

  2. Mash the berries with a potato masher or fork.

    Step one of this raspberry lemonade recipe shows the raspberries getting mashed in a pot.
  3. Bring them to a boil and then immediately reduce to a simmer. Cook until everything has cooked down by about half.

  4. Allow them to cool for a bit and then transfer to a fine-meshed sieve over a bowl.

    Step two shows the raspberries being put through a strainer to extract the juice.
  5. Use a large spoon or other slightly curved surface to mash the raspberries through the sieve. This will remove your seeds and pulp.

    Step three shows the raspberries being mashed through the sieve to extract the juice and pulp without the seeds.
  6. You will be left with a bowl of raspberry juice that has a small amount of fiber in it (usually scraped from the bottom of the sieve when you're done mashing).

    Step four shows the finished juice and seedless pulp in a white bowl, ready to make raspberry lemonade with.
  7. Combine this in a pitcher with the remaining 6 cups of water and all other ingredients. Adjust sweetener to taste and serve over ice for a nice chilled glass of fresh, homemade lemonade.

    Two glasses filled with raspberry lemonade sit on a white serving tray, ready to serve.
