Lavender has a strong flavor. Lemon has a strong flavor. Put them together, and they play incredibly well off each other. This cooling and refreshing sugar-free lavender lemonade is the perfect thirst quencher. It’s great for springtime get-togethers right up through the dog days of summer when temps are at their highest. With fresh lavender and freshly-squeezed lemons, this lemonade is clean, refreshing, and ideal for relaxing after a long day.
When making this lavender lemonade, it’s essential to make sure you use culinary-grade lavender or lavender from your own garden. Either way, be absolutely positive it’s free from any chemicals or pesticides. And unlike a lot of other lavender lemonade recipes you can find, this one doesn’t use any added sugar or simple syrup.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: N/A
32 oz cold water
3 large lemons, squeezed and sliced
1/2 cup fresh lavender
Ice cubes (optional)
2-3 packages of Stevia (optional)
Fill a pitcher with water. Add all remaining ingredients, mix well, and enjoy!
If the lavender taste is a little on the strong side, try using half of what the recipe calls for. While lavender tends to smell (and thus taste) the same, it can vary depending on what soil it was grown in and how much sunlight it got.
Want something fizzy? Simply replace the water with sparkling mineral water.
This sugar-free lavender lemonade should store for 10-14 days in the fridge. (You’ll probably drink it all way before that though!)
