My Favorite Lemonade RecipesTuesday, July 5, 2016
My kids love the lemonade from the boardwalk, but I find it to be overly sweet or not well mixed, with most of the sugar settling on the bottom of the cup. Ideally, I like to make a batch of homemade lemonade rather than buy it. Here are a few of my favorite recipes.
This is my go-to basic lemonade recipe. I like it because it contains Stevia rather than sugar, so it's diabetic friendly but just as tasty.
This is a refreshingly tasty treat that quenches your thirst and cools you off. It's almost like drinking a lemon meringue pie.
Green Tea Lemonade
I love green tea, and with the addition of lemonade, it's even better! This recipe is made with green tea bags that are a blend of sencha (a type of green tea) and matcha (green tea powder). You get all the health benefits of matcha without the taste, which can be very earthy.
Raspberry Peach Lemonade
Fresh raspberries and peaches add a wonderful flavor to this refreshing lemonade. Don't forget the garnish...it's the best part!
Cucumber Mint Lemonade
I've tried several recipes for cucumber mint lemonade, and this one is by far the best. It is a bit labor intensive as you have to grate the cucumber and then strain the liquid through cheesecloth. But it is sooo worth it. The flavor is incredibly light and very refreshing.
