Summer seemed to have crept on us here in Michigan. We didn’t have much a Spring but our temperatures have been kind of cool for summer time. However, this past week the temperatures have picked up and feels like summer is in full swing!

My kids and I love to be outside soaking up the sun and playing. My boys play HARD. That means during the summer they devour food and seem to always be asking for something to drink.

Water is our go to beverage but being that it’s summer, I like to add some fun treats to add to the mix. But, I really can’t rely on store bought ones because they often contain food dyes, high fructose corn syrup, and other junk that I simply don’t want me kids to have. 

I want their summer drink treats to count. I want them to hydrate and nourish their bodies. They are growing so fast and I want to make sure they grow up as healthy as possible.

One of their favorite drinks is lemonade. Sigh. Who doesn’t love a cold glass of lemonade?

Since my boys are not big tea drinkers I do try to sneak some herbs and teas in when I can. Hibiscus is perfect to add to lemonade, because it is already sour and it adds a beautiful deep, red color that makes it a fun treat.

I also love that hibiscus is high in vitamin C, which is perfect at helping those bodies stay healthy. We use it in a DIY vitamin C syrup as well and my boys have no complaints about taking it.

The vitamins that come from herbs are so easy for the body assimilate, I know that it is a great boost for their bodies. 

We love this version of lemonade when we need something different. I promise your kids will love the beautiful color and you will love that you are serving them something that nourishes and hydrates their bodies.

I am always asked about my favorite ingredients and what I use in my own kitchen. I have linked to the products from my affiliate partners that I personally use and recommend. And now, here are the special coupon offers that select affiliate partners are currently offering:

  • Thrive Market: If you sign up through this link, you will get 15% OFF your first order.
  • Amazon, of course, has everything you need for this recipe. Their prices are often very good, though I love to shop around and sometimes find that Thrive Market has better deals. If you like saving money, it’s good to shop around! 🙂
  • I get all of my herbs and spices from Mountain Rose Herbs. I have tried so many other brands and have never found the quality, flavor, and aroma to be as good as the herbs I get from Mountain Rose.
