I have had this delicious Low Fodmap Mint Lemonade recipe sitting in my archive for a while. It’s something I made a lot during our Aussie summer and even though it is still quite cool down here, I think it’s time to share it with all of you.
I don’t think there is anything better than a cold lemonade on a hot day to cool yourself down, is there?
I love home-made drinks because you know exactly what goes into them and you can control the amount of sugar you put into them. That why this lemonade, besides being is refreshing, is also healthy, as it’s made with freshly squeezed lemon juice, sugar, and a hint of mint.
This is a very easy recipe. The only trick to make the perfect lemonade is to make a simple syrup with water and sugar so that the sugar is completely dissolved before you mix in the remaining ingredients.
This recipe is Low Fodmap at 1 serve, so if you are following the Low Fodmap diet, make sure to stick to it.
