Ginger Mint Limonade (SCD Friendly)

 
Here is another recipe I’ve been waiting to share with you.  
I started making this healing drink after I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, and it has become a favorite drink of mine.  It was super HOT a couple months ago and it really hit the spot after some serious bike riding.  My kids love it too – just the right balance of sweet and tart.  And here’s a nice way to use up my lemon juice.  I hope your family enjoys this great summer recipe.  I’m such a sucker for ginger and just love how all these flavors work together.  
Ingredients:
-1/4 cup honey (or adjust to your sweet preference)
-1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
-1 cup lemon/lime juice (I do about 3/4 cup lemons and 1/4 cup limes, but you can add any combination of the two, or omit the limes altogether)
-1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
-6 cups filtered water
-Ice 

How To:
1.  Mix above ingredients together in a large glass pitcher.
2.  Fill your glasses with ice and a few mint leaves.
3.  Fill glasses and enjoy.

Notes:
*For vegan option, add an equal amount of coconut nectar or 15 drops of lemon stevia (or regular stevia).  

Ahhhhhh
