Looking for something cute and yummy on a hot day. Make this Lavender Lemonade ahead of time. I am sure you will love it.There are a few ingredients you will need to make this, especially the lavender which is the most important ingredient here.
Ingredients:- 6 cups water divided
- 1/2 cup sugar replacer - we like to use Allulose sweetener in powder form
- 1/4 cup Allulose syrup
- 3 Tbsp dried lavender
- 2 cups lemon juice
Lemon slices and lavender petals for garnish.
Blue or purple food coloring optional - we use natural Butterfly Pea Superfoods for this.
Some studies suggest that consuming lavender as a tea can help digestive issues such as vomiting, nausea, intestinal gas, upset stomach, and abdominal swelling. In addition to helping with digestive problems, lavender is used to help relieve pain from headaches, sprains, toothaches, and sores.
Over medium heat, combine two cups of water and sugar, bringing to a boil until sugar is dissolved. Turn off of the heat and stir in honey and lavender.
Allow mixture to steep for 2 hours (less if you want less of a lavender taste). Strain the liquid, pressing the lavender down to make sure you get all of those juices into your mixture!
In a large pitcher, combine freshly squeezed lemon juice, lavender mixture and water. Feel free to add a couple drops of blue or purple food coloring if you want more color than the lavender provides. Makes the lemonade especially cute for those brunches! Serve over ice.
