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:
I love this Watermelon Lemonade recipe from the really, really cute blog, Confections of a Foodie Bride. Watermelon Lemonade from Smitten Kitchen is also good.
From Blackberry Lemonade to Cucumber Mint Limeade, some lovely and beautiful flavors–from the blog, A Beautiful Mess
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.
The photos at the blog Tartelette are amazing, and the recipe does not call for sugar. It looks fantastic.
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.
Simple Bites has a delicious recipe for Lemon Balm Infused Lemonade, as well as beautiful photos and whole foods recipes for the family.
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!
