Lavendar Honey Lemonade

6 lemons, juiced

6 cups water

4 packets of Stevia

2 tbsp honey

2 tbsp lavender, dried

Directions

  1. Place lavender in a glass bowl and add 2 cups of boiling water, honey and sugar, mix well. Cover and steep for 30 minutes.
  2. Strain and transfer infusion to a large pitcher. Add fresh lemon juice and remaining 4 cups of water, mix well.
  3. Taste and adjust sweetness to your liking. I prefer it more tart and enjoy this recipe as is, however you made need to add a touch more stevia.

 

Strawberry Lemonade

After making the Tone It Up Lavender Honey Lemonade my husband asked if I could make Strawberry. So this is for my wonderful and always supportive hubby!!
