I love Chick-fil-A. I went to school at Arizona State and we used to have one in our student union. At the time, I had never heard of it, had no idea it was a chain, and just knew I loved their chicken sandwiches and those waffle fries.
And then I moved to California and then back to Chicago and the only time I got to even see Chick-fil-A anything was when they would show commercials for it on college football games. It was a big tease since WE DID NOT HAVE THEM IN CHICAGO!
But now we do! In fact, there is one opening downtown soon! And there is also one across the street from the place where I get my hairs did.
Now, since I’m watching what I eat, I try to be good. I usually get no fries and their grilled chicken sandwich, which is still so tasty and low in points! And to wash it all down, I always get a Diet Lemonade.
If you have not had a Diet Lemonade from Chick-fil-A, and you are able to go out and get one now, DO IT! It is the least diet-tasting drink ever. It tastes like sugary, fresh-squeezed regular lemonade.
Since I only get my hairs did once every 8-10 weeks, and I don’t live close to where I get my hair done, I don’t get a lot of opportunities to enjoy this delectable drink.
Thankfully, my friend Regan is currently pregnant and drinking gallons of the stuff and found an excellent copycat recipe! And lucky for you, I’m going to share it!
Tastes Just Like Chick-fil-A Diet Lemonade
- 1 quart water
- 1 cup Splenda (or sugar, if you’re looking for the regular version)
- 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Mix it all together and drink it all up!
As an added bonus, you can use those lemon rinds to freshen up your garbage disposal!
