Wow! It has been SO hot in the last couple of days. We really needed a nice drink to cool down a bit, so I made this raspberry peach lemonade. This homemade lemonade is so much better than store-bought lemonade, which is usually packed with tons of sugar! And it’s super easy to make.
I’ve always thought making homemade lemonade would be complicated and time-consuming. Well, it definitely isn’t! In the last two years, I started to make lemonade quite regularly. At least in the summer. I love making watermelon lemonade or lemon ginger lemonade. And this time, I made raspberry peach lemonade. I didn’t use any refined sugars for this lemonade. Only 2 tablespoons of agave for 2.5 liters of water, which is pretty good I think. The peaches and the raspberries make it really sweet though! Instead of agave, you can also use maple syrup.
Raspberry Peach Lemonade – What You’ll Need
You only need very few ingredients:
- a couple of lemons
- and agave
Sounds pretty easy, right? As always, you can find the full ingredient list and the recipe instruction in a separate recipe box beneath the text section. I’m writing this because I had some people lately asking me on Facebook where the recipe was. So I just wanted to make sure that you don’t think this short ingredient list is all.
I like the raspberry peach lemonade best after a night in the fridge with some lemon slices and fresh mint. It’s even more flavorful this way. But of course you could also enjoy it right away. Don’t forget to add some ice cubes though! You want it to be really cold…
I hope you all have great and relaxing summer weekend!
