Homemade Lemonade (with a healthy secret)
Our new hand-crafted lemonade has a small-but-mighty secret.
Not only is it half the calories and sugar of soda, but it’s loaded with the health-giving benefits of flaxseed and organic apple cider vinegar…all without sacrificing taste.
This stuff is the real deal — it’s not made from syrup or out of a box. It tastes so good, you wouldn’t even know it’s so incredibly wholesome.
It’s that good AND good-for-you.
The Art of Making Hand-Crafted Lemonade
We make our lemonade fresh in-house daily the old fashioned way.
First, we steep ground golden flaxseed to release all those great Omega 3′s. The liquid is strained twice through a fine sieve. Even with the straining process there will still be small pieces of flaxseed left behind. This produces a thick flaxseed syrup to which we add real sugar, fresh lemon juice and Bragg’s organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar.
The result is a bright, lightly sweetened lemonade that is the perfect complement to one of our bowls. From time to time, we’ll infuse our lemonade with seasonal fruit to reflect the season.
1 Glass, 100 Health Benefits
One glass of our homemade lemonade will refresh and infuse your body with a surge of nutrients and health benefits. Not only will you get a healthy dose of Vitamin C from the fresh lemon juice, but you’ll enjoy the antioxidant and cure-all benefits from superfood ingredients flaxseeds and apple cider vinegar.
Flaxseed is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet.
It’s the #1 source of lignans in the human diet, and contains up to 800 times more lignans than other plant-based foods. Among all the 127 World’s Healthiest Foods, flaxseeds come out on top as a best source of Omega 3′s. Flaxseed is also rich in soluble and insoluble dietary fiber, thus making it a helpful digestive aid.
