There’s nothing like a refreshing glass of lemonade. But rather than always buy, consider making your own. Naturally sweetened, homemade lemonade is a great way to use up leftover produce, and also makes a refreshing drink with no plastic packagign. This recipe for homemade strawberry lemonade (Minimalist Baker) is an ideal alternative to commercial lemonades made with refined sugar. This lemonade is sweetened with agave syrup, maple syrup or brown sugar. Not fizzy, it uses a heaping cup of fresh fresh strawberries and fresh lemon juice.
Never use dodgy sweeteners like artificial sweeteners or xylitol (bad for your tummy and lethal if dogs licked it up). All citrus fruits are unsafe near animal friends.
Blackberry basil lemonade (Rainbow Plant Life) is as tasty and healthy, as it is colourful. Made with just 5 ingredients, ideal for cooling down on hot summer days.
