Mint Lemonade recipe

Easy and refreshing, this fresh-squeezed mint lemonade recipe is free of refined sugars and preservatives. Kids love it!

  • Total Time: 20 mins
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 6 lemons (at room temperature)
  • 1/2 to 3/4 C Agave Nectar (to taste)
  • Handful of fresh mint
  • 5-6 Cups Cold Water
  • Ice Cubes


  1. Roll room temperature lemons on cutting board to prepare them for juicing
  2. Cut lemons in half and juice (I use a fork to "twist" juice out, placing a sieve over my liquid measuring cup to catch unwanted seeds)
  3. You should have about 3/4 to 1 cup of fresh lemon juice
  4. Rinse fresh mint and chop roughly to release flavor
  5. Combine lemon juice, agave nectar, and 5-6 cups of cold water to taste
  6. Add freshly chopped mint and stir
  7. Add ice cubes and refrigerate for 30 minutes
  8. Serve with lemon slices or mint springs as garnish


Quick tip: use room temperature lemons for easier juicing!
