Fresh Squeezed Lemonade is like summer in a glass. Make this recipe for a refreshing drink or even for your kiddos lemonade stand!
With the snow on the ground we’re all thinking about the sunshine and sand between our toes, am I right? I’ll be the first to admit, but definitely not alone when I say it.. I miss summer when it’s winter and I miss winter when it’s summer. Our favorite season of all is Fall. If the weather could be cool and warm at the same time always that would be great. I’d love to move to a place that has fall weather year round. Never too hot and never too cold.
We love lemonade. We have made pineapple lemonade, lemonade water, and even pineapple lemonade ice pops to share on Super Healthy Kids. You can find the ice pop mold online, we LOVE it! Those popsicles are ridiculously delicious. You could say we really know how to turn lemons into lemonade. 😉 To make this recipe cute we used decorative straws, but shortly after realized that drinks taste better using a regular or stainless steel straw. You can buy stainless steel straws online in different varieties, we even have ones with a slight bend like you see used in our Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie recipe.
This is just another simple recipe that we like to enjoy. Perfect on a sunny day and even better on a cold one when you’re missing the sunny one. We multiply this recipe for however many guests. The recipe below is a single serving.
