The warm months are finally here – that means we get to enjoy time outside with friends and family. What’s better than enjoying a cold beverage after spending all day in the sun? A healthy and delicious beverage, of course! Today, we’re sharing our simple but ‘oh so good!’ homemade lemonade recipe.
This fresh lemonade juice recipe can be added to any juice bar menu, or it can be used at home. Ditch the sugar-packed processed juice and switch to this all-natural healthy alternative made from fresh lemons, apples, and ginger. As always, this juice can be dressed up with vodka and gin (depending on your preference), or you can throw in a few strawberries for some added color and sweetness and make strawberry lemonade.
The great part about making your own juice is that you can experiment all you want!
