Rated 2 out of 5 by Geep from Honey Doesn't Blend I found the honey sunk to the bottom of the blender and just sat there. As a result, the lemonade was too tart. Any tips to avoid this are welcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by StuartE from USE SUGAR CANE SYRUP Honey does dissolve poorly. Best to use sugar cane syrup. This can be found in the drinks section of the supermarket. It is used to sweeten cocktails, so dissolves very easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by daven121 from Amazing flavour from just one lemon I have only had my Vitamix a few weeks and this was one of the first things I tried as it seemed simple enough. Wow! the flavour from one lemon considering the amount of drink you get is incredible!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SarahMV from Amazing and simple! This was so easy and inexpensive to make! It was a nice light taste, not overly sweet like the store bought variety. My kids loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tuffcookie from Wonderful! I decided to make fresh lemonade with my Vitamix. After reading the reviews about the sugar not mixing well, I decided to mix the sugar with boiling water, stirred it real well, and set it aside until it was room temperature. This is a definate winner that I will be making on a regular basis in the summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KoalaSez from Tart and refreshing Easy to make in only a few minutes. Lemon size might matter just a little...mine are on the small side but did fine. Sweetener is personal preference..I used stevia this time.
