Mint Lime-Aid (AIP/Paleo)

Mint Limeade FB

Well, here we are in June, welcoming summer once again. Here in the south we have welcomed summer with a massive heat wave and I am telling you what I am feeling it! Obviously, staying hydrated is always concern but it especially important right now while I am pregnant.  I am so thirsty al the time and I am just getting tired of boring old water and herbal pregnancy tea. Recently we had some guests over and I decided to create a fun summer drink that everyone could enjoy and this was the result. Its a twist on traditional lemonade but it is delicious and refreshing and very summery! Obviously, nothing replaces regular water for actual hydration but this is a great treat on a hot summer day when water is just not doing the trick! I am really looking forward to the summer and this was a great drink for welcoming in the warm weather and sunshine! Enjoy!
