Red Clover Lemonade

The kids and I went collecting red clover again yesterday. I’m gathering it for medicinal purposes, but I happened to come across this recipe for Red Clover Lemonade, which I just have to try.

Red Clover makes a great cleansing tonic, but it should not be used by anyone on blood thinners, anyone who should not be on blood thinners, and those who are pregnant or nursing. If you have any medical conditions, make sure you look up whether Red Clover is safe for your particular case or not before trying.

Red Clover Lemonade

  • 3 cups Red Clover blooms
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 1/4 cups lemon juice
  • 4 Tbsp honey

Boil the blooms in the water for 5-7 minutes. Strain; add lemon juice and honey to the remaining liquid. Stir, then chill for two hours. Serve over ice. Enjoy!

Thanks, Bella, for sharing this fun recipe! I’d encourage you all to go check out how Bella came across this recipe and her gorgeous red clover blossoms.
