I love lemonade, but I feel like most store-bought or restaurant-served options are too sweet, too sour, and/or make me more thirsty after drinking them than I was before.
This is a simple lemonade that leans on natural sweeteners – honey and stevia powder – to make a refreshing and light drink perfect for summer mornings, afternoons, and evenings.
Honey Mint Lemonade
- 1/2 gallon water
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2/3 cup lemon juice fresh squeezed - this is important!
- 1 handful mint leaves
- 1-1 1/2 tsp stevia powder
- 1-2 cups ice
- Make the syrup by combing the honey and lemon juice in a cup and whisk until combined. Add the mint to the syrup and gently muddle with a muddler or the back end of a wooden spoon (muddling is when you crush and bruise the leaves to bring out the oils and flavor more).
- Pour the syrup with the mint and the stevia into the water. Mix until combined, add the ice, stir again and enjoy!
