A sweet indulgence, without all the extra calories — this skinny peach lemonade is our new favorite summertime drink!
Skinny Peach Lemonade Recipe
When it comes to beverages, I’m mainly a water drinker. However, if I’m going to indulge, it’s not soda — I’m all about lemonade!
There’s something about that sweet and sour concoction that I can’t resist — in fact, I craved lemonade with all of my pregnancies!
Regular, flavored, I love all types of lemonade. I’ve even made edible lemonade slime for the kids to play with!
The only thing you have to watch out for with lemonade is that some of the store-bought versions are packed with sugar. It adds a ton of empty calories! (And if I’m going to eat something with a lot of calories, it’s going to be chocolate cake. ‘Nuff said!)
That’s why I’m so excited to share this homemade sugar free peach lemonade! It’s so flavorful, but there’s no sugar added so you don’t get all those calories from sugar and syrup-laden lemonades.
Made with simple, real ingredients like fresh fruit, and a touch of stevia, this skinny peach lemonade is a delicious, refreshing treat that won’t bust your diet.

Calorie Comparison to Other Lemonades
Our skinny peach lemonade has about 71 calories (per 8 ounce serving). This is primarily from the natural fruit sugar (fructose) found in the peaches themselves. Here’s how it compares to some of the most popular lemonades on the market:
- 35% fewer calories than Minute Maid Lemonade (110 cal/8 ounces)
- 41% less calories than Simply Lemonade (120 cal/8 ounces)
- 53% fewer calories than Chic-Fil-A Lemonade (151 cal/8 ounces)
Not gonna lie, I totally love me some Chic-Fil-A lemonade! But if I can make a delicious alternative with half the calories, that is a win-win in my book!

How to Make Sugar Free Peach Lemonade

Note: This sugar free peach lemonade recipe makes about 4 (8 ounces) servings.
- This skinny peach lemonade recipe takes a little longer than fresh squeezed lemonade, but that is because we are essentially making a sugar free peach simple syrup. So there is cooking and cooling time involved. Trust me, it is SO worth the extra time!
- Another thing that you’ll want to make sure of is to keep the skin on the peaches while you cook them down. This helps keep pulp from taking over your peach simple syrup. (Though you do want to remove the pits/seeds).
- Once you’ve reduced your peach simple syrup and chilled it, always strain it to remove the big chunks of peaches and most of the pulp. (It’s ok if a little bit of the pulp works it’s way through). I find that a stainless steel mesh strainer works perfectly for this job!
- Keep your sugar free peach lemonade refrigerated until ready to serve. It should keep for a few days in the fridge, but not as long as store bought lemonade because there are no preservatives in ours. (And that’s a good thing!)
- Optional garnishes: fresh mint sprigs and peach slices
