Fresh Strawberry or Raspberry Lemonade Recipe

Photo by My Hubby

I was struggling to get a good picture of this raspberry lemonade so I turned the camera over to my hubby and asked him to take one.  It's a little dark but I think he did a good job. It is very fitting that my husband took the photo of the raspberry lemonade recipe because I created this for him.  He begged me to make some for him to go with dinner and so I took on the challenge and it turned out amazing! 

This strawberry lemonade is very reminicent of the fresh berry lemonade you get in fancy restaurants.   There are no flavorings, syrups or fake ingredients in this raspberry's all fresh ingredients! I had a couple of sips of this drink because it was soooo good. 

This raspberry lemonade would make an amazing refreshing drink for a summer BBQ or just a lazy day out by the pool or after swimming or boating.  There is something about the combination of fresh lemon and fresh berries that is so refreshing and cooling on a hot summer day!

***You can certainly use any sweetner you like, coconut sugar would be an excellent low glycemic index sweetener to use in this drink.  Enjoy!

Fresh Red Raspberry or Strawberry Lemonade Recipe

2 c. water
1 c. lemon juice
1 c. turbinado
2 c. frozen raspberries, strawberries or mixed berries

If you do not have a high speed blender, heat the water, lemon juice and turbinado until the turbinado dissolves, otherwise blend all together except raspberries, add raspberries, pulse to break up and serve.

That looks so yummy! And sounds very yummy too! Might have to give it a try while can still get fresh strawberries fairly reasonable =)
