All-Natural Raspberry Lemonade (without fresh raspberries!)
Hot, summer days leave you wanting something cool and refreshing to drink.
Don’t reach for those instant drink mixes! Make this easy, all-natural raspberry lemonade instead! Wildy Organic’s beautiful freeze-dried raspberry powder not only adds gorgeous color but fun flavor and nutrition.
And that means you can make this lemonade even when you don’t have fresh berries!
Lemon Juice — Bottled or Fresh?
That’s your call of course! There really isn’t anything like lemonade made with fresh-squeezed lemon juice, though. Besides the bright, refreshing flavor, you also get the benefits of the natural enzymes present in fresh produce.
Essential food enzymes are destroyed by heating and processing but our bodies need them! By beginning to break down the food we eat before the stomach acids get involved the stress on our digestive system is lessened. A diet of mostly cooked and processed foods puts undue strain on our bodies!
Even so, if you don’t have access to fresh, preferably organic lemons, by all means, use a bottled juice. It’s still a healthier option than powdered drink mixes laden with sugar and artificial colors!
Freeze-Dried Raspberry Powder
Made from organic raspberries and nothing else, freeze-dried raspberry powder is a great way to get a little more Vitamin C in your diet.
You won’t find anything but berries here — no artificial colors or preservatives. Use this raspberry powder to color beverages, popsicles, or birthday cupcakes and frosting and you’re giving your kiddos a healthy, colorful treat.
Fresh berries are ah-MAZ-ing but they don’t stay fresh long. You won’t find fresh, local berries in the winter in much of the U.S. either.
Yet, freeze-dried raspberries allow you to make this all-natural raspberry lemonade, even without access to fresh raspberries!
Keeping your pantry stocked with healthy, organic berry powders means you can add a little berry flavor and nutrition to your beverages, yogurts, and more no matter what time of year it is.
