With the warm weather of summer upon us, my children love making fresh and icy lemonade. Here is one of our favorite Vitamin C rich and tasty thirst quenchers. No sugar added, just naturally sweetened with local honey! Switch out the raspberries for your favorite flavors such as strawberries, blackberries, blueberries or a berry blend.
1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice or organic Santa Cruz lemon or lime juice
½ cup local honey
1 cup fresh raspberries
4 cups water
In a blender, add the lemon juice, honey and berries. Blend until evenly combined. Pour into a large pitcher and add the water and mix until evenly blended. Serve with ice, a lemon slice and fresh raspberries.
Yours in health and happiness,
