It’s like a billion and three degrees here in Washington D.C. and in an effort to cool down I made this AMAZING Strawberry Lemonade recipe by The Alkaline Sisters. This delectable drink and the pool are pretty much the only things that help us beat this blasted heat. Not only is this lemonade delicious, but more importantly it has no sugar and is all natural. Yum! Make sure to check out The Alkaline Sisters for more yummy and healthy recipes.
Fresh Pressed Strawberry Lemonade by The Alkaline Sisters
Yield: 4 1/2 cups
3 cups filtered water
3 cups fresh strawberries, washed and hulled
3-4 tbsp agave syrup
Peel the lemons and then juice lemons in a juicer (on low setting if you have that option), yielding approx 2/3 cup fresh juice. Next, juice apples whole. Pour lemon/apple juice into blender, add filtered water, strawberries and 3 tbsp agave syrup. Blend well, adjust sweetness with last tablespoon of agave if needed. Pour into small mason jars, garnish with mint, lemon or strawberry and enjoy:)
Note: If you don’t have juicer, you could certainly make a smoothie with all these ingredients instead and just hand squeeze the lemons and then blend in the berries and the apple.
