G’s Ginger Lemonade

G’s Ginger Lemonade

 

Hello All 4 One Home friends!

I hope you are all enjoying these long days of summer!  Here at All 4 One Home, we’ve been very busy doing projects around the house, growing our garden, and adjusting to our new fulltime residences (our 6 chickens). Now with the longer days and warmer temperatures I’ve been craving a refreshing beverage that will quench my thirst and give me a boost of energy at the same time. Lemonade is always a summertime favorite, so I decided to give it a healthy twist.

In this recipe, I incorporated some extra beneficial ingredients like fresh ginger, turmeric, and cayenne pepper. Because I’m watching my sugar intake, I have replaced refined sugar with monk fruit sweetener.  I have also included a list of other alternatives for sugar that are healthier for you as well. I believe you will be pleasantly surprised by the flavor of this lemonade; the subtle unexpected zip from the ginger and the cayenne pepper will make your tastebuds sing. I hope you’ll give it a try and let me know your thoughts!

 

Ingredients:

1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice about 6 lemons (Meyer lemons if in season)

1/2 cup monk fruit sweetener/agave nectar/coconut sugar/swerve/honey (combine with 1 cup of warm water to make a simple syrup)

1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger

1/4 teaspoon turmeric

Pinch or two of cayenne pepper

6 cups of water + the 1 cup of simple syrup

Combine the above ingredients and serve over ice.

 

Enjoy!
