Have you ever tried making your own lemonade? Then you know that there is normally quite a lot of sugar in there, and let’s not even talk about store bought.

So if you are tired of just drinking water an want to spice up your dinner or party with a fun non-alcoholic healthy but super delicious drink? Then look no further than this recipe.
All you need to make a successful blood orange lemonade is:
- blood oranges
- sparkling water
- a blender
You could also juice the lemon and the blood oranges but I prefer to have more fiber in my drink. Juices are not a whole food because they are stripped off the fiber. They, therefore, make your blood sugar spike more even though they don’t have any added sugar. Fibers are also an important fuel for your beneficial gut bacteria. So any chance I can get my hand on fiber I take it.
To make the consistency of the pulp smoother I mix it on high in a blender. If there are still larger stringy pieces you could pour the mix through a colander.
You can add as much or as little sparkling water to your fruit mix depending on how sweet you want your lemonade to be.
