Healthy Treat for Today: Yummy Lemonade…or LimeadeBy
At one point I realized…why, I have LOTS of drink choices!
Would you like your water cold…or room temp? Filtered, or not filtered? In a mug or in a glass? Ice or no ice? Crushed ice or cubed? Would you like a straw? What color of straw would you like?
By the time I get through all of my questions, my guests feel like they are at a five star restaurant that caters to their every need. (Or something like that.)
Occasionally though…it’s fun to treat the kids (or company) to something special and exciting. And when I really think about it, our blender works overtime making yummy smoothies, slushies and milkshakes.
Here’s the lemonade I make every once in a while for a refreshing change of pace. Or…I use limes instead of lemons to make limeade. Or…I use lemons and limes and make lemon-limeade. (Ice or no ice? Crushed or…)
Refreshing Lemonade or Limeade
8 cups cold water
4 lemons or 4 limes or 2 of each
1/4-1/2 cup real grade b organic maple syrup
1. Put the 8 cups of water into a pitcher
2. Slice the lemons and/or limes in half. Squeeze the juice into the pitcher of water.
3. Add maple syrup.
This will make you pucker…but it’s so yummy on a hot summer day!
Sometime soon I’ll share some of the recipes for the milkshakes I like to make! Our blender has been working overtime this summer on these healthy treats!
