Today I am sharing with you all a refreshing summertime drink, Carrot Lemonade. So I bet some of you are thinking carrot and lemonade – what a weird combo! I thought so too, but I’m a fan of carrots and figured if it was too carroty I probably wouldn’t mind much.

It’s easy to make and you don’t need a juicer; just simmer the carrots for 10 mins and then blend. I think next time I will add a bit of ginger zest in there, too. One of the best parts of this juice is that unlike most lemonades, you don’t need to add any sugar. You can even make it ahead of time, though I would suggest that you don’t add all the water until you are ready to serve as the carrot tends to thicken once cooled.

A perfect drink to cool you down during this week’s July 4th celebrations. Do you mix other fruits and veggies with your lemonade? What else should I try?
