During a hot summer day, there’s nothing quite as refreshing as a cool glass of lemonade. Relax and recharge with this delicious, health-infused Fizzy Ginger Lemonade from Keeping Your Cool, by Jessica Espinoza of Delicious Obsessions.
With cold and flu season right around the corner, filling your body with the nutrients of ginger and lemon is always a good idea.
The anti-inflammatory benefits of ginger – which you’ve probably heard about – are said to rival those of NSAIDs, but I’m also excited about gingerol, the bioactive substance in fresh ginger which helps to lower the risk of infections. Talk about killing two birds with one stone! (That’s kinda morbid, sorry…)
And how about those healthy little lemons, boosting your immune system with all their vitamin C and filling your body with antioxidants? They’re always a good addition to your diet!
Jessica’s eBook is full of delicious, easy to make drinks. There’s no refined sugar or weird ingredients – only real food goodness! All the shakes, slushies, and smoothies are perfectly mouthwatering during any season. This Fizzy Ginger Lemonade is a refreshing twist on a southern favorite. I love the freshness and pop! the ginger adds.
Even though I could down a whole batch of this delicious drink myself, I really do love making treats that my family enjoys, as well. My 4-year old son got ahold of a cup as I was shooting pictures. Since the ginger gives the lemonade a little kick, so I was interested to see what he thought about it…
“It’s spicy…” I warned him, as he took a sip. “Do you like it?”
“Of course!” he happily replied as he continued to chug. “It’s SO good!”
Side Note: If you’re worried by my motherly word of warning, this lemonade is not really spicy. “Spicy” is what my kids call anything with a hint of life. Haha! So when you read ‘spicy’ just think, ‘the opposite of sweet.’ 😉
From now through July 4th, Keeping Your Cool is on sale for only $3.97! You’re not going to want to miss out on these delicious drinks, so make sure you head on over and check out the ebook. 😉 You won’t regret it.
