Refreshing Mint Lemonade Recipe


In summer days and winter dryness nothing quenches the thirst and replenishes your system but a nice big glass of Mint Lemonade.

Rather than purchasing a sugar loaded lemonade drink I opted to try to recreate a healthier version of it at home. My recipe is very simple and easy to make. It is not only delicious to your taste buds but mint lemonade is full of nutrition as well. Mint aids digestion, reduces halitosis, helps in female sterility and its oil is full of good antiseptics for the face and even the nipples of breastfeeding moms. Its smell alone is a treat for the senses. Lemon juice also aids indigestion, is a useful treatment for kidney stones and helps break fever among many other benefits.

Here is my recipe below. Try it out and Enjoy ☺

Ingredients:

Juice of 2 lemons

10 Liquid Stevia Drops

Ice and Water

Directions:

In a blender, put all the ingredients. Blend, pour into a cup and enjoy. It’s that simple.
