Healthy Homemade Mint & Ginger Lemonade

Both mint and ginger have some incredible health benefits and I highly recommend using both of them regularly in your family’s diet.

Health Benefits of Mint

  • Rich in nutrients like Vitamin A and Iron
  • High in Antioxidants
  • Can ease digestive problems
  • Reduces stress & anxiety
  • Used for fighting fatigue

Health Benefits of Ginger

If I had to choose only one food to keep for its health benefits, it would be ginger. Fresh ginger is an overall immunity booster that I always have on hand.

  • Strong antibacterial properties
  • Supports the digestive system and eases upset stomach
  • Can lower blood sugar levels and reduce cholesterol
  • Helps to ease menstrual pain
  • Being studied for potential cancer preventing properties
  • Anti-inflammatory properties

Ingredients

  • ½ cup packed Fresh Mint Leaves (Chopped)
  • ⅓-½ cup Fresh Ginger (Chopped)
  • ⅓ Honey or Maple Syrup
  • 2 cups boiling Water
  • 2 Whole Lemons (Juiced)
  • 1-2 cups Cold water
  • Quart Jar of other 4-cup Glass

Directions

STEP 1

Chop the fresh ginger and mint. I left the stems on the mint and the peel on the ginger pieces because it will all be strained before drinking the lemonade.

STEP 2

Boil 2 cups of water in a small saucepan. Add the chopped mint, ginger, and honey, maple syrup, or honey simple syrup to the boiling water.

STEP 3

Turn off the heat and allow the mint and ginger to steep for 30 minutes. 

STEP 4

Strain the tea into a quart jar or a container that will hold 4 cups of liquid. Keep the solids that you strain out to put in your compost bin
