Iced Berry Lemonade

Iced Berry Lemonade

You donít need sugar to make this refreshing honey-sweetened, berry-packed version of the classic summer treat. Extra antioxidants along with that sweet-tart taste we all love make Iced Berry Lemonade a pleasing–and healthier–choice for a cooling summer drink.


1/2 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup honey
2 tea bags–black, green, or herbal
1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
1/2 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
3 cups water

1. In a small saucepan, combine the lemon juice and honey and heat over low heat until the honey has dissolved. Add the tea bags and allow to steep for 5 minutes, then remove tea bags.

2. In a blender, puree the lemon-honey with berries and water. Chill until very cold.

3. Rinse 4 glasses with cold water and freeze for 5 minutes until frosty. Add crushed ice, if desired, and berry lemonade, garnishing each glass with mint sprigs or additional berries, if desired.

Serves 4.
