What is in Homemade Lemonade and which ingredients to use? This lemonade is made out of freshly squeezed lemons, mint leaves, stevia and of course water.
- Lemons: Lemons are high in vitamin c, fiber and have multiple health benefits like for example supporting heart health and digestive health. They are known for their acidic and sour taste. And if you love lemons as much as I do you could even consider growing your own lemon tree. Yep, you heard me right! Sounds super fun to me and you can save a lot of money too.
- Mint leaves: Mint is a popular herb and a mouth freshener that can be used in multiple recipes. In addition, it is also known for its impressive health benefits. Mint might regulate digestion, boost memory or aid in breastfeeding.
- Stevia: Stevia is a natural sweetener, that has been used since the 16th century. It is a non-nutritive sweetener and can be used used as an alternative to regular refined sugar. For this recipe, I prefer using stevia over regular white table sugar, but if you are not a big fan of stevia, feel free to use any sweetener of your personal preference!
- Cold Water: If you want to make some lemonade, you will also need some water. Make sure that the water is ice cold if you want the lemonade to be extra refreshing.
