This fresh lemonade juice recipe can be added to any juice bar menu, or it can be easily made at home. Ditch the sugar-packed processed juice and switch to this all-natural healthy alternative made from fresh lemons, apples, and ginger. As always, this juice can be dressed up with vodka and gin (depending on your preference), or you can throw in a few strawberries for some added color and sweetness and make strawberry lemonade.

The great part about making your own juice is that you can experiment all you want!

Why Should We Drink Fresh Lemonade?

This easy recipe is quick to make with a short prep time! Feel free to experiment on your own with adding in new ingredients like green apples, limes (to make limeade), and more – the possibilities are endless. If you’re looking for a sweeter version of this recipe, you can always throw in your favorite sweetener or add some sweet fruit like pineapple.

Equipment note: We used the M-1 commercial juice press to make this juice recipe, but you can use pretty much any type of juicer. Just keep in mind that the quality will always be higher when using a juice press.
