lemonade + fruit + love = delicious summer days

lemonade + fruit + love = delicious summer days

Ready for summer? We pulled out  some frozen raspberries and decided to make some lovely raspberry lemonade. This recipe is adapted from Everyday Raw by Matthew Kenney (and it’s only “everyday” if you are single, independently wealthy, and live in New York City, but I love the book anyway).

  • 1 c lemon juice
  • 3 1/4 c water
  • 1/2 c agave nectar or some other sweetener of choice
  • 20 raspberries

Mix this all together, and add some frozen raspberries in place of ice cubes when serving.


But, let’s not stop at raspberry…there are hundreds of amazing ways to experience this beautiful summery drink.  Here are some other lemonades to try:


Watermelon Lemonade

I love this Watermelon Lemonade recipe from the really, really cute blog, Confections of a Foodie BrideWatermelon Lemonade from Smitten Kitchen is also good.

Lemonade Flavor Inspiration

From Blackberry Lemonade to Cucumber Mint Limeade, some lovely and beautiful flavors–from the blog, A Beautiful Mess

Grilled Georgia Peach Lemonade

And no self-respecting Southern girl would post about lemonade without including a recipe for Grilled Georgia Peach Lemonade…this one is from Taste for Adventure.

Strawberry Rhubarb Lemonade

 The photos at the blog Tartelette are amazing, and the recipe does not call for sugar.  It looks fantastic.

Texas Mango Lemonade

Texas Style Mango Lemonade

Not only did I find a great recipe for Mango Lemonade, I found a wonderful place for great vegetarian recipes and incredible photography at Red Chillies Vegetarian Recipe Blog

Kiwi Lemonade with Frozen Strawberries for Ice Cubes

 And, while looking for a Kiwi Lemonade recipe, I found lots of reviews of healthy things, and some great recipes at Mom’s Best Bets.

Lemon Balm Infused Lemonade

Simple Bites has a delicious recipe for Lemon Balm Infused Lemonade, as well as beautiful photos and whole foods recipes for the family.

Passionfruit Lemonade

 I couldn’t finish the post without adding a recipe for Passionfruit Lemonade.  I love passionfruit–the real thing–it reminds me of living in Australia. Urban Comfort has a great recipe, with a great source for a passionfruit pulp.  Always Order Dessert also has a good recipe.

However you plan to enjoy the summer, get a head start by sitting on the porch with a pitcher of fresh lemonade!


  1. Lemonades are my favorite! They all look so yummy– thanks, Misty. :-)

  2. Ooh, I should be ambitious and try some of these! I sure wish I had a cozy front porch with rockers. Maybe someday….( : It makes me think of that movie “Summer Magic” and the song “On the Front Porch with You.”
