Conventional lemonade recipes are packed with added sugars (and the bottled ones have some not-so-savory additives and preservatives, too). This mixture evokes the beloved taste of freshly made lemonade, but it’s infused with body-boosting ingredients. The cucumbers create a hydrating base for the juice, while apples provide a lovely sweetness that’s not too sugary. The fresh blueberries add age-defying antioxidants and help give the drink a gorgeous purple color.
Pro Tip: This is another great recipe to keep handy for summer entertaining, or to offer kids as a more nutritious spin on a favorite childhood classic!
