Easy Homemade Strawberry Lemonade

You probably know how fond I am of turning seasonal produce into refreshing homemade drinks. From this spicy Jalapeno Lemon-Lime Mocktail to this detoxifying Vegan Jamaican Irish Moss (Sea Moss) Drink, I’m always on the lookout for the next best healthy elixer. 

My lstest favorite is this sweet and bright strawberry lemonade. It’s naturally sweetened andkid-approved for a summertime sip with fresh fruit and health benefits.

Ingredients

There are just three ingredients (plus water) in this recipe:

  • Fresh lemon juice. You’ll need 5 to 6 whole lemons for two servings of lemonade.
  • Agave. You can use another sweetener, like maple syrup, honey or simple syrup, if you like. 
  • Strawberries. Choose local if you can, they’ll be more flavorful and have more nutrients.

Doubling the Recipe

This recipe serves two. But you’ll probably want more strawberry lemonade, and I can’t blame you! You can easily double or triple the recipe to serve a crowd.

Benefits of Fresh Lemon Juice

The lemons in this drink pack some important health benefits, including:

  • Vitamin C, for a strong immune system
  • Citric acid, which can help prevent blood disorders like anemia
  • Soluble fiber if you include some of the lemon pulp, which helps promote healthy digestion

Storage

Store your lemonade in the fridge for 1 to 2 days. Ice will dilute the flavor, so it’s best to store it without ice.

  • 1/2 cup Agave + more if needed! 
  • 2 cups strawberries, stems removed + sliced

TOPPINGS:

  • Crushed ice
  • Sliced strawberries

Instructions

  • In a bowl, add the fresh sliced strawberries and freshly-squeezed lemon juice, mulling (crushing) everything together until strawberries are fully broken down and a bit crushed. Add in the Agave and stir until well combined combined. NOTE: Add additional sweetener depending on sweetness desired.

Tips & Tricks

  • STORAGE: Keep any leftovers in the refrigerator, tightly covered in your pitcher or in a sealed mason jar. Best if consumed within a few days.
  • SWEETENER: You can always use ‘honey’, pure cane sugar, or maple syrup instead of using Agave. This makes for a more subtle sweet taste. For Vegan honey option—Bee Free Honee, click link.
