Lavender Lemonade

Mother’s Day is around the corner and mama wants a drink. 😉

I am so obsessed with this Lavender Lemonade! Not only is the color perfection, but it’s the perfect little refreshing treat when I don’t want to drink yet another glass of water.  And for all you non-pregnant babes, add a little vodka or white rum to the mix if you’re looking to spice things up a bit. 🙂

Lavender actually has a ton of awesome benefits for stress, heart health, digestion, inflammation, skin and sleep. I would recommend a lavender tea over a spiked lemonade if you’re looking strictly for the health perks; but you’ll get the delicious flavor in both!

Wishing all the mom’s and mom’s-to-be a happy Mother’s Day this weekend 🙂
