Stevia Sweetened Blueberry Lavender Lemonade

This lemonade is so refreshing and delicious. It is a wonderful calming way to drink lavender safely. I do not recommend drinking essential oils or mixing them with water, since they are not water soluble.

Keto Lemonade

I love this stevia sweetened lemonade, for kids. Even if you aren't a huge fan of stevia, you should know it blends very well with lemons and with dairy. So try it! Even my husband likes this recipe, though he's not a fan of stevia. I like NuNaturals, because it has very little bitter or licorice taste.

Stevia Sweetened Blueberry Lavender Lemonade

Blueberries are in season and we have a big craving! This lemonade sounds strange, but it is actually really addictive and delicious!! For this, I used dried lavender from my own garden that I had just dried, so it was pretty fresh, resulting in a very strong lavender taste. If you are using fresh lavender, I recommend you half the lavender but keep the same amount of water if you don't want a strong lavender taste. If you bought it from the store, or it came from a teabag, no problem. Even though the lavender was strong in our lemonade, we still love the taste. Blueberries are a low sugar berry bursting with antioxidants, phytonutrients, fiber, and tannins -which reduce inflammation in your digestive system! Blueberries are a superfood. They are also good for your brain, and for men ... well you can look that one up ;). Blueberries are #14 on the dirty pesticide list, so try to buy them organic.
