Instructions:

  1. Juice all of your lemons, being mindful of the seeds as to not get them mixed in your final product. To make juicing your lemons easier, use your hands to roll each lemon against a sturdy surface to soften them up.
  2. In a large pitcher, combine the freshly squeezed lemon juice with 3 1/2 cups of water and 2/3 cup organic cane sugar.
  3. Using a blender, blend 1 cup of halved strawberries combined with the remaining 1/2 cup of water and 1 tsp organic cane sugar until you have a juice-like consistency.
  4. Add the strawberry juice to the lemonade and stir well.
  5. Add in the mint leaves to the mixture.
  6. Add in the remaining 1/2 cup of halved strawberries to the mixture.
  7. Cover and let sit in the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving.
  8. Serve over ice and with a lemon round on the rim of your favorite glass. Enjoy outside under the sun with vegan BBQ such as our delicious BBQ vegetable skewers.
