Homemade Lemonade

This is one of my favourite drinks. Very easy to make using the Thermomix and probably relatively easy to make using a high powered blender though I must admit I haven’t tried it yet.
This recipe is from the Thermomix cookbook that comes with each machine though I use far less sugar than they suggest as I like the lemonade to be a little tangy.

Ingredients:
40 gm raw sugar
1 tray ice cubes
2 large lemons, washed but not peeled
1000 gm still or sparkling water

Method (Thermomix):
Place sugar in TM bowl
Pulverize for 5 seconds on Speed 9
Add ice cubes and pulverize for further 5 seconds on Speed 10
Remove top and bottom of lemons and cut into guarters.
Add to TM bowl with 500gm water
Set lid to close lid position
Pulse the turbo button 4 times
Add remaining water
Insert basket into bowl and strain into jug
