Strawberry Ginger Lemonade

We ate at a Vegan restaurant called Lamb’s Bread the other day and my boys went crazy over their Pineapple Ginger Lemonade. “Can you make it at home?!? You don’t have to juice it, you can make a fresh raw smoothie instead, but make it taste just like this!” Well, I noticed that the restaurant also had a Strawberry Ginger Lemonade. As we drove home, I remembered that the Blissful Chef had a similar recipe in her book but with mint instead of ginger. It should be easy. Well, the Blissful Chef has this exact recipe on her website! If you haven’t tried her other recipes yet, do! They are very family friendly and delicious!

For this recipe, I just substituted the limes with lemons, ginger juice with grated ginger and maple syrup with raw local honey. Adapted from the Blissful Chef, puree in a high speed blender til smooth:

1 – 1 1/2 tspns grated ginger

zest from 2 lemons

juice from 2 lemons

1/3 cup raw local honey (or your choice of sweetener)

1 pound fresh organic strawberries, tops removed and sliced in half (I have also tried it with mixed frozen berries)

3 cup water

Slice some strawberries to garnish. Yummy! By the way, we also used some leftover to make popsicles. Now to try it with pineapple next!
