During pregnancy I was legitimately always thirsty. I felt like I drank a gallon of water and could just never quench my thirst. On top of that, I specifically craved lemonade. If you’ve ever been pregnant you know how those cravings go – you must have it now. Obviously nothing is wrong with a glass of lemonade here and there but at the rate I was consuming this stuff I needed to put a healthy spin on it. I made this mint filled, stevia-sweetened version and was immediately obsessed:
24 ounces of filtered water
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
Handful of fresh mint
10-15 drops of liquid stevia
Directions: Rinse mint and add it to a large mason jar or pitcher. Add water, lemon juice, and stevia (add a few drops at a time to determine the sweetness you like). I like to let the mint sit in the lemonade for 20-30 minutes, then add ice to serve. You could also muddle the mint a bit and drink immediately.
It’s so damn refreshing, especially heading into warmer months. Enjoy my healthy lemonade!
