Honey Boo Boo Child and the star of TLC's "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." She and her mom make their lemonade from the real stuff -- but it's not exactly healthy.

In a clip from the Wednesday, Sept. 12 episode of the reality it, we see how the Thompsons concoct their refreshing beverages. Honey Boo Boo's lemonade contains about five pounds of sugar and two gallons of lemon juice, according to Mama June.

"The secret to making good lemonade is a lot of sugar and a lot of lemon juice," she explains. "I don't like stuff that tastes nasty. I like a lot of sugar and stuff."
