Summer is the perfect time of year for fresh lemonade! Give it a little boost with some Plant based Collagen Booster, like in this raspberry lemonade recipe from Meghan De Jong.
Did you know that antioxidants are a great addition to your summertime routine? Spending time with friends in the sunshine, outdoor workouts, etc. can all lead to an increase in free-radical damage. By adding antioxidants to your diet, you can help to reduce free-radicals.
But where can you find antioxidants? Well, mainly in fruits and vegetables – especially the bright ones! Berries, leafy greens and citrus fruits all contain a variety of antioxidants. We get it though, when you’re having fun in the sun, the last thing you might be thinking about it how many antioxidants you consume. Try blending them up in a smoothie, or in a delicious raspberry lemonade!
Serving size: single serving
Prep time: 5 minutes
1 Tbsp. Organika Plant Based Collagen
1.5 cups water
1/2 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)
Juice of 1/2 a freshly squeezed lemon
1/2 cup ice plus an additional handful for serving in glass
Optional: 1 tsp raw honey
Garnish: fresh mint or basil
Place all ingredients into a blender and mix until well incorporated
Taste test to ensure it matches your desired taste. If you want it more sour, add additional lemon juice and/or the flesh of the lemon. If you want it a touch sweeter add the honey. Continue to blend until everything is well mixed together
Pour into a glass over ice and garnish with fresh mint or basil and a fresh lemon wedge
