I found a regular recipe for Homemade Lemonade today on, but since it wasn't sugar free, I made some adjustments. One thing I love about is that I can take a recipe I have (or in this case, one from their website that I want to make adjustments to!) and put it into their website either listed as public for everyone on the site to see and rate, or private for only me to see, and, provided I put it in correctly based on their "format tips", it will calculate the nutrition information for me! As long as I am entering in the ingredients correctly for their format to accept and understand it, I have found that their nutrition information is pretty darned accurate!
