You know what they say: When life gives you new, game-changing methods for cutting fruit, you make lemonade. And Stacie’s recent Kitchen Help Live video has done just that; I finally know how to cut kiwi, mango, and — yes! — even the notorious pomegranate like a pro. You can bet I’m going to put that knowledge to use by making these delicious fruit lemonade recipes that I can’t wait to sip on all spring and summer long.
Because, hey, even sweet lemonade is a good alternative to the unicorn frappucino and its 76 grams of sugar. Ha!

Pomegranate just got a lot more accessible thanks to Stacie’s technique for getting the seeds out painlessly, which just happens to involve aggressively hitting the fruit with a wooden spoon. (What? That doesn’t sound fun to you too?) Now that it’s not so labor-intensive to harvest the seeds, I may be making this Pomegranate Lemonade at From the Grapevine (above & top) on the regular.
