Raspberry Lemonade

Stepping up the traditional lemonade stand beverage with a little raspberry twist. Raspberries are a great addition to lemonade and add an antioxidant punch. The nutritious fruit aren’t overtly sweet, which makes the addition of honey and coconut water a welcome balance.


  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 5-6 lemons
  • ¼ cup honey or simple syrup
  • 1 cup coconut water

Put it on ice! To make a raspberry lemonade slushy, toss in a handful of ice and blend until desired consistency and texture is reached.


  1. Juice lemons, then add the juice and remaining ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Garnish with a few mint leaves and fresh raspberries, if desired.
