Frozen Lemonade: Quench Your Thirst and Boost Your Health

Today, I’m sharing my new favorite drink: Frozen Lemonade! I discovered this over the summer, but I plan to enjoy it the rest of the year too. You will need:

  • 1 Whole Lemon (washed well as we will use the WHOLE LEMON)
  • 3 Dates (pitted)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Honey (I like Raw and Organic)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil (Light Tasting)
  • 1 Cup of filtered Water (I use Coconut Water)
  • 1 Cup of Ice
  • 1 Teaspoon of Ginger (Fresh)
  • Dash of Cinnamon ( I use Saigon)

Toss in the whole lemon, the water, the dates, the ginger, the honey and olive oil, and the Dash of Cinnamon. Blend well. Pour over a cup of ice in a beautiful glass for a perfect frosty, yummy treat. 

1. Whole Lemon:
Packed with vitamin C, lemons are known for their immune-boosting properties. They also contain antioxidants and aid digestion, making them a fantastic addition to your daily diet. Using the whole lemon, including the peel, adds dietary fiber, which supports gut health.

2. Dates:
Dates are nature’s candy. They are a great source of energy, loaded with essential nutrients like fiber, potassium, magnesium, and vitamins. Dates provide natural sweetness to the Frozen Lemonade without the need for processed sugars, making it a healthier alternative.

3. Honey:
Raw and organic honey is not just a natural sweetener; it boasts antimicrobial properties and is rich in antioxidants. It can help soothe a sore throat, making it a perfect addition to your Frozen Lemonade, especially during colder months when immune support is crucial.

4. Olive Oil:
Light-tasting olive oil adds a smooth texture to the drink. It is rich in healthy monounsaturated fats and contains antioxidants that can reduce the risk of chronic diseases. Olive oil also supports heart health and provides a dose of vitamin E.

5. Ginger:
Fresh ginger adds a zesty kick and numerous health benefits. It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, aids digestion, and can help alleviate nausea. Ginger is also known to boost the immune system, making it an excellent addition to your Frozen Lemonade.

6. Cinnamon:
Apart from enhancing the flavor profile, cinnamon is renowned for its health benefits. It helps regulate blood sugar levels, has anti-inflammatory properties, and is rich in antioxidants. Adding a dash of cinnamon not only makes the Frozen Lemonade taste delightful but also contributes to your overall well-being.

Incorporating these wholesome ingredients into your Frozen Lemonade not only makes it a delicious treat but also a nutritious one. So, go ahead and indulge in this delightful concoction, knowing that you are nourishing your body with every sip.

Pro tip: For quick and efficient blending, consider using a high-quality blender like the one recommended in the blog. Enjoy your Frozen Lemonade and reap the health benefits it has to offer!
