I love lemonade! My lemonade follows a traditional recipe with fresh lemon juice & organic cane sugar. We made this lemonade even more exciting by adding fresh mint & cucumber! To note, you could easily use less sugar if you prefer or try stevia, a natural low-calorie sweetener as an alternative.



Try these fun tips for adding more lemon juice to your day!

  • Add ½ a lemon, juiced to a glass of chilled or hot water and enjoy first thing in the AM!
  • Use lemon juice with olive oil and sea salt as an easy natural salad dressing
  • Freeze lemon juice in ice-cube trays with other fun fruits such as blueberries for a nutritious way to chill your summer beverages!
