Refreshing Cherry Lemonade

Refreshing with an added dimension - cherries!

1 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (or follow directions and skip squeezing the lemons)
2 quarts pure cold water
1/2 pound fresh cherries, pitted and pureed (any kind)
Stevia to taste (safe and natural sweetener)

If you have a Vitamix or powerful blender, simply peel the lemons, removing the rind and seeds. The pulp is full of vitamin C and will thicken the juice a bit.  Pit the cherries (any kind), and puree the lemons and cherries until smooth.  Add pure cold water and ice.  Add enough stevia to make it sweet.  Pour into glasses, add ice, and serve!
