Freshly squeezed, tart n’ sweet and filled with antioxidants and vitamins, this twist on a classic lemonade recipe is the perfect beverage to quench your guests’ thirst and bring a smile to their faces (or maybe a pucker if you like it on the tart side!). This recipe uses fresh strawberries, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and coconut sugar, which contains nutrients that regular table sugar does not have. Fun fact: Coconut sugar contains a form of fiber called inulin that slows the glucose absorption into the bloodstream, which may be why it has a lower glycemic index than regular sugar. Drink up! (Note: This is large recipe and will probably have to be made in batches to fit in your food processor.)
9 cups Chilled Water
1 1/2 tbsp Lemon Zest
4 1/2 cups Lemon Juice, freshly squeezed
3 cups Strawberries
4 scoops BõKU® Super Berries (about 4 tsp)
Coconut Sugar, to taste
1. Cut tops off strawberries and slice into small chunks so they are easier to process.
2. Place strawberries, lemon juice and Boku Super Berries powder in food processor and process until smooth. Note: This is large recipe and will probably have to be food-processed in batches to fit.
3. Strain the puree, pouring it into a large serving jug.
4. Add the cold water and coconut sugar and mix together (you’ll have to play around here. Depending on the sweetness of the strawberries and your own taste the amount of sugar used can widely vary). Serve over ice and enjoy!
