    Strawberry Lemonade with Mint

    Strawberry Lemonade with Mint

    Serves 6

     

    What You’ll Need:

    A Large Glass Pitcher

    Measuring Cups & Spoons

    A Strainer

    A Sharp Kitchen Knife

    A Blender

    A Wooden Spoon or Whisk

     

    Ingredients:

    12 oz Strawberries, Organic

    1 Cup Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice

    1/4 Tsp Stevia

    8 Cups Water

    2 Tbsp Fresh Mint, Organic

     

    How To Put It Together:

    1) Remove the green tops of the strawberries and cut them into quarters. Chop the mint roughly; set aside. To a blender add the strawberries, and lemon juice; blend to a puree.

    2) Hold a strainer on top of a glass pitcher. Pour the strawberry/lemon juice mixture through the strainer to remove the seeds, stirring with a spoon or whisk as needed.

    3) To the blender, add about 1 cup of water and the chopped mint. Blend until green and fragrant. Add the mint water to the pitcher. Pour about half of the remaining 7 cups of water into the pitcher; then add the stevia. Pour the remaining water into the pitcher; whisk thoroughly to combine. Place the pitcher in the refrigerator to cool until thoroughly chilled.

    4) Serve and enjoy!
