Honey Turmeric Lemonade Recipe

It's been warm here for all of 1 day and I'm already thinking about summer drinks. 🍹 I love how turmeric has become such a popular health food.  Who else loved drinking hot turmeric milk over the winter? This is my summer way to get super healthy turmeric and ginger into your diet. This doesn't even seem healthy because it is so darn delicious! It's light, sweet and citrusy with just a hint of turmeric. The colour is pretty and it's sure to impress anyone you serve it to. 

I like to use all fresh ingredients in this recipe because when you're avoiding certain foods it's always nice when there isn't an ingredient lists to have to worry about. 

With super ingredients like these you can't go wrong! 

Ginger
Ginger is great for healthy digestion. It contains gingerol a compound that helps soothe digestion and improve gut health. 

Turmeric
Turmeric has long been used for its digestive, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. The primary compounds to which turmeric's benefits are attributed are curcuminoids and volatile oils. 

Lemon
Drinking lemon everyday is a great way to get your vitamin C and keep your digestive system working smoothly.

Cinnamon
Cinnamon is a spice that is made from the inner bark of trees called Cinnamomum. It's loaded with powerful antioxidants, such as polyphenols and has anti inflammatory properties.
