Healthier Lemonade Recipes to help you keep cool and refreshed this Summer.

Healthier Lemonade Recipes that are perfect for Summer! | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comLemonade is just so Summery.  It’s sweet.  It’s refreshing.  And when made right, it’s ice-cold.  Oh, and pretty.  We cannot forget pretty!  I happen to be a big fan of it because of that.

And if you asked me what my favorite kind of lemonade is, my response would not be anything fancy or crazy healthy.  Nope.  Just give me a big ‘ole glass of lemonade from Panera Bread and I’m a happy camper.

This post is not out to tell you not to buy lemonade at Panera Bread.  When you are lazy or you just want some gosh darn delicious lemonade, go.  But when you want to feel fancy, or you are trying to impress guests with an elaborate (sarcasm, obviously) Summertime drink at your next barbecue, make one of these.  They’re “healthier” (most are sweetened with honey), but totally not skimping on deliciousness.  Because if it doesn’t taste good, who wants it?
