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.
Makes 5.5 cups
- 4.5 cups filtered water
- 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, I used 3.5 large lemons
- 8 mint leaves
- 1 heaping Tbsp. unpasteurized (raw) honey
1. Add 2 cups, freshly squeezed lemon juice, mint leaves and honey to a blender and blend on high for 10 seconds. Add to a pitcher with remaining filtered water and stir. Let sit in the fridge for a couple hours before serving, to let mint flavours infuze in the water and to let chill.
Strain lemonade through a metal tea strainer if you don't want mint leaves in your lemonade.
