I grew up with pink lemonade, the small tub of Country Time powder that you could mix into water and have a sweet light pink drink in minutes. While my mom was strict with desserts and sugary cereals, somehow this small pink tub was approved a summertime treat!

Nowadays, I know there is a better option out there and it only has 3 ingredients! This Organic Pink Lemonade is made with fresh lemon juice, raspberries, and cane sugar for a summertime drink that will take you back to being a kid again!

While I have always thought pink lemonade was raspberry, some may think it’s strawberry. But, I had some less than ideal raspberries in my fridge, so today I made fresh raspberry lemonade that is naturally pink! And I know in my heart this is the way pink lemonade is supposed to be — made with raspberries!

You’ll love this Organic Pink Lemonade with just 3 simple ingredients. It takes just a few minutes to make and all you need is a small pot and a blender. This summertime drink is perfect on its own but you can also use it as a mixer for cocktails too.
