Lemonade has to be one of E’s favorite things. Especially in the summer. I was trying to link to this recipe and then I realized it wasn’t on my blog. Had to fix that!
This version is FODMAP friendly. Of course, you can always change the sweetener. I always make this when E is holding martial arts class at our house, which means a 90 min workout during hot weather, so simple carbs are often a nice treat. As always, sweets are a treat…best in moderation. 🙂
- 5 lemons, preferably organic
- small handful mint leaves
- 4 cups water
- 12 oz plain seltzer
- 1/3 cup sugar dissolved in 1/3 cup water
Wash the lemons. Juice 4 of the 5 lemons in the 4 cups of water. Slice the other lemon. Put the lemon juice in the water, along with the juiced lemon halves and the mint leaves overnight to infuse.
Make a simple syrup–easiest way is 1 minute in the microwave with 1/3 cup sugar, 1/3 cup water. stir with a spoon. When it cools, pour into the pitcher.
Right before serving, add in the seltzer for some bubbles. This recipe makes about 6 servings. A single serving (one cup) is low FODMAP.
