Healthy Recipe of the Week
Blueberry + Mint Lemonade
Labor Day has past, but the summer heat continues – especially if you live on the West Coast!
Wherever you live, enjoy this refreshing elixir to quench your thirst!
Special thank you to wellness expert and senior Peloton instructor, Emma Lovewell for sharing this recipe!
- 1 cup Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice (about 5 large lemons)
- 4 cups Water (*may substitute with seltzer to add some bubbly)
- 1/3 cup Maple Syrup
- 3 – 4 sprigs Fresh Mint
- 1 cup Blueberries (frozen)
Juice all lemons… “Put some elbow grease in!” In a large pitcher, combine the lemon juice, water (or seltzer), and maple syrup. Set aside and chill. *Chilling the mix now will slow down the blueberries (which serves as the “ice”) from defrosting quickly. In a mason jar or glass, muddle the mint and one (1) tablespoon water until you release the essential oils. Add the mint mixture to the lemonade and decorate with blueberries. Enjoy! For an added joy, watch your drink take on a two-tone appearance!
