As the weather starts to warm up we’re looking for delicious and healthy cool drinks…what better treat on a warm, sunny day than a tall cool glass of lemonade! Unfortunately it’s hard (and expensive) to find a good ready made lemonade that isn’t chock a block full of added sugar. Fortunately it’s easy (and economical) to make yours at home! We made two versions, refreshing Strawberry Lemonade and Sassy Turmeric & Pepper Lemonade.
4 cups water
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup lemon juice
lemon slices for garnish
Heat water until steaming, add honey and stir to disolve. Let cool in fridge. When cool add lemon juice.
For Strawberry Lemonade, add a few strawberries to food processer, add 1/2 cup lemonade and process until smooth, add back to lemonade.
For Turmeric/Pepper Lemonade, add 1/2 inch piece of peeled turmeric root, 1/2 in piece of Fresno Pepper (seeds removed), add 1/2 cup lemonade and process until smooth, add back to lemonade.
You can get creative and make your own custom version as well!
