There is nothing like 90 degrees to make me crave an ice-cold beverage from a sweet tea to a coffee frappucino. Taking my pup for a walk, I see multitudes of ten-year-old entrepreneurs hosting their lemonade stands for a summer buck, igniting a lemonade craving. In an effort to satiate my sweet tooth without drinking my day’s calories in a powdered drink mix, I have been sipping some homemade Honey Mint Lemonade.
Recipe for Fresh-Squeezed Honey Mint Lemonade
It only takes about three minutes to mix up a carafe of refreshing Honey Mint Lemonade (containing many ingredients that are useful to detox the body!).
