Lemonade is the refreshing drink that everybody knows. Simple and sweet, it only takes a few minutes to make a cold and energizing beverage, perfect for hot Summer days or for rehydrating after a workout or a run.

What you may not know is that you can learn how to make lemonade even healthier and revitalizing with a simple previous step. With a bit of Spanish olive oil and some lemon zest, your lemonade will have a flavor boost and also lots of good components, such as oleic acid, natural antioxidants or vitamin E.

Why? Because Spanish olive oil is a source of health and wellbeing. Using it, you are on the way to reduce the risk of heart diseases, diabetes and obesity. It’s also delicious, so... it’s a win-win situtation!

Let’s make some refreshing and healthy lemonade!

How to make lemonade:

  1. Grate a couple of lemons’ skin and put the zest into a glass jar. Add the EVOO from Spain and the juice of 1 lemon. Cover the jar and shake it, so the olive oil and the lemon flavors combine. Let it rest overnight at room temperature.
  1. Put a casserole at medium heat to make a syrup. Add the sugar and a cup of water. Gently stir while the ingredients start to heat and the sugar dissolves. Once it is about to boil, turn it off.
  1. Add this syrup into a big glass jar, then add the cup of fresh lemon juice and then, the lemon and Spanish olive oil mixture that you made the previous night.
  1. Stir everything with a long spoon and then add 2 cups of cold water and a few fresh mint leaves. Mix it all well and the lemonade is ready! For a stronger lemon flavor, add some lemon slices.
  1. If you want your healthy lemonade to be even colder, add some ice cubes or leave it in the fridge for a few hours. Also, remember to stir it every time before serving, to make sure the sugar doesn’t sit at the bottom of the jar.

Lemonade is an easy but super refreshing drink
