My beautiful 13 year old step daughter came home with this amazing lemonade recipe that she said we all just HAD to try! She pressed the lemons, added the water, honey and mint and blended it. And she was right. It was so darn perfect and refreshing for our hot sunny weather. A couple ice cubes later and we were drinking fresh cold lemonade on our newly poured concrete deck. A year later we are still making this lemonade recipe. So thank you Chloe!
I've been adding this lemonade recipe to our freshly home brewed Kombucha and it's so good! The bubbles and the sweet, yet tart flavour makes me feel like a kid again, drinking pop!
This recipe is so simple, so I'm going to keep this post the same.
My daughter Chloe brought home a lemonade recipe and we have been making it ever since. We have slightly modified it over the years. I can’t wait for a nice hot day to blend up a batch of this lemonade. Feel free to add more honey or stevia if you like it sweeter. This is also a great base for making drinks like punches or Kombucha (fermented tea).
Makes 5 1/2 cups
- 4 1/2 cups filtered water
- 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, 3 1/2 large lemons
- 1 heaping Tbsp. unpasteurized honey or 10-15 drops of liquid stevia, to taste
- 8 mint leaves
1. Add 2 cups water, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and sweetener to a high speed blender. Blend on high for 10 seconds. Add to a pitcher with remaining filtered water and mint leaves. Stir. Let sit in the fridge to chill before serving. Mint flavours will infuse in to the lemonade. Remove mint leaves in half an hours’ time. Serve cold.
