Healthy Ginger Lemonade – The Mindful Mocktail

With just 4 ingredients, homemade ginger lemonade is super easy. It’s low in sugar, healthy and very tasty.

It’s no secret that I love recipes for low-sugar drinks. But what I love the most are the low-sugar drinks with health benefits.

This easy ginger lemonade is the perfect drink to serve health-conscious guests, as it has all the good stuff and no occult ballistics. Even better, it’s easy to make and can be made in advance.

This recipe is:

  • easy: With minimal, easy-to-source ingredients, you can make this recipe with little or no experience in the kitchen!
  • correct: With purifying lemon and nutrient-rich ginger, this simple lemonade is not only refreshing but good for you as well.
  • Low in sugar: This recipe is sweetened with monk fruit sweetener, an all-natural sweetener with no net carbs. This means that lemonade is very low in both calories and sugar. Noticeable: You can use regular sugar or another sweetener if you prefer, just be aware of the sugar content.
  • Perfect for Guests: Prepare a double batch of this lemonade in advance and spend less time preparing and more time entertaining when your guests arrive.

What is ginger lemonade?

Traditional lemonade is made with lemons, sugar, and water – which makes it delicious but lacks in nutritional value. Many people think lemon juice is sparkling, likely due to what’s stocked on supermarket shelves these days! But the traditional lemonade still stands, so I kept that tradition alive for this recipe.

Ginger and lemon are a match made in food pairing heaven, so it makes sense to combine the two, and I bet you’ll agree that the result is delicious!

If you love everything ginger, be sure to check out my ginger mocktail, it’s always a hit. Or, if you’re a fan of lemons, don’t miss the healthy lemon mocktails.

ingredients

Who doesn’t love a low-ingredient recipe?! This drink only calls for 3 times plus water.

Fresh lemon juice: I used 1 cup of lemon juice which is enough for me. If you prefer a more tart flavour, feel free to add more. You will get the best result if you squeeze the lemon right before assembling the drink. Please, I beg you, do not use bottled lemonade. I haven’t found a good one yet. Even if the ingredients say “100% lemon juice”, it always tastes very chemical…not like real lemons.

Of course, if you find one you absolutely love, use it – and please leave a comment below with the name, because I’d love to find one.

fresh ginger: Again, the fresher the better for this ginger lemonade. I like to store ginger in a zip-lock bag in the crisp area of ​​my refrigerator. Don’t peel it off, leave it whole and it will stay for weeks.

Monk fruit sweetener: There are many reasons why I adore monk fruit sweeteners but primarily – they work as a 1 to 1 substitute for sugar, have no net carbs and taste exactly like sugar. Monkfruit also occurs naturally, so there are no hidden evils. I honestly think it’s one of the best sweeteners on the market.

I used the classic monk fruit sweetener for this recipe.

How about a drink appetizer?

It’s no secret that I love easy drink garnishes, and I also think that some nice glassware makes drinks taste better – well, I know that’s not quite right. But let’s face it, we really eat with our eyes sometimes, right?

For lemonade, I think keep it simple. I used some simple lemon rounds for me. If you want to get super luxurious, you can try an easy lemon twist and an edible flower.

how to make it

Cut the ginger into slices 4-5 mm thick. There is no need to peel it off.
Place the ginger, water, and monk fruit sweetener in a medium saucepan. Heat it over a medium heat, stirring occasionally.
Bring to a simmer. Bring to a simmer, cover and let marinate for 10-15 minutes.
Remove from heat and leave to marinate for another 15-30 minutes. The longer the soaking takes, the stronger the ginger flavor will be.
Remove the ginger and add the lemon juice to the saucepan. Move it gently.
Refrigerate for at least an hour.
Feet with snow.

Instructions

I don’t have local monk fruit. What can I use?

Honey is a great alternative. You can use it the same way you used monk fruit sweetener – by adding it to the pot along with the ginger and water. Keep in mind that honey is darker in color so the final color will be darker than what is pictured.
You can also use stevia, coconut sugar, or your choice of sweetener. See the instructions on the package for transfer amounts.

Can I make ginger lemonade in advance?

Yes! I think ripening is better in this recipe, so it’s best to make it the same day you’re going to serve it. But if you need to, the next day will be fine too.

Can I turn this into sparkling lemonade?

surely. To do this, halve the water content, and then proceed to making the recipe as instructed. After cooling and just before serving, add 2 cups of sparkling water to the jug and stir gently.

Other healthy drinks you can try:

I hope you love this simple ginger lemonade as much as I do!

dishes: American

keyword: Lemonade with ginger

stakes: 4

ingredients

  • 2.5-3 inches fresh ginger unpeeled
  • 1 cup Fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup Sweetener monk fruit powder or substitute (see notes)
  • 4 cups water

instructions

  • Cut the unpeeled ginger into circles 4-5 mm thick.

  • Warm ginger, water, and monk fruit sweetener in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

  • Bring to a simmer. Bring to a simmer, cover and let marinate for 10-15 minutes.

  • Remove the ginger and add the lemon juice to the saucepan. Move it gently.

  • Place in the refrigerator for at least an hour, then serve with ice.

Notes

  • For best results, use freshly squeezed lemon juice instead of bottled – bottled is absolutely tasteless!

  • I used sweetened monk fruit powder for this recipe. If you don’t have a monk fruit sweetener, honey is a great alternative. Just keep in mind that honey is darker in color so it may change the color of the lemon juice. You can also use stevia, coconut sugar, or your choice of sweetener but you may need to adjust the amount. Refer to the instructions on the package for transfer amounts.

  • Want to make it sparkling lemonade? Just halve the water content and continue to make the recipe as usual. Just before serving, add 2 cups of sparkling water and stir gently.
