Tasty and Healthy Lemonade

On warm days, we love lemonade, especially when it is tasty and healthy lemonade!  Making homemade lemonade is so easy, and tastes so much better than any powder fake lemonade.  I usually keep a large bowl of lemons on hand.  I try to drink at least two large glasses of lemon water everyday, so lemons can always be found in our home.  Did you know that lemons are so good for the body?  We just had a stomach virus go through our house, and lemon water was the only thing that we could keep down.  I post over at How Does She last spring, sharing three healthy lemonade recipes:  Grapefruit lemonade, Cucumber Rosemary Lemonade and Hibiscus Pink Lemonade.  All three recipes are tasty and healthy lemonade made with a raw honey simple syrup to sweeten and fruits.  For this tasty and healthy lemonade posts, I am sharing other three lemonade recipes:  Blueberry lemonade, Watermelon lemonade and Lavender Lemonade.

Healthy Blueberry Lemonade

(Best made when blueberries are in season)

1 cup blueberries

1 cup raw honey

1 cup water

1 lemon

Instructions: using a juicer or citrus press, juice the lemon and then pour in glass pitcher or mason jar.  Fill the jar with filtered water, leaving room for your blueberry syrup.

To make the blueberry simple syrup, combine honey and 1 cup water in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring until well combined.  Stir in blueberries and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until blueberries are mushy.  Use a masher utensil mash down the blueberries, about 3-4 minutes.  Turn off heat then strain blueberry mixture through a fine sieve to remove any blueberry chunks.  Pour the syrup in a large jar or pitcher with the freshly squeezed lemon.  Garnish with mint leaves and fresh blueberries.

Place the watermelon in a blender to juice.  Pour in a jar or pitcher, along with 1 cup of the honey simple syrup.  Using a juicer or citrus press, juice the lemon and then pour in glass pitcher or mason jar.  Fill the remaining jar with filtered water.  Garnish with tiny slices of watermelon.
