Organic Ginger Lemonade

Print Friendly and PDF

This a healthy, delicious detox tea. You can drink it cold or warm. This tea is very good for reducing pain and inflammation. Ginger contains potent anti-inflammatory fighting substances and is a natural powerful painkiller. It also helps improve the immune system.  

Lemons have strong antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers. They also support weight loss because lemon juice is a digestive aid and liver cleanser. 

So this drink packs a healthy punch! It is simple to make and tastes delicious. You can drink it in the morning to stimulate digestion before eating breakfast. I recommend having a green smoothie or juice after. 

Oh, and if you feel a cold coming on....this will help knock it out!


To Make a pitcher: 

  • 6 organic lemons 
  • 1 to 2 inches of ginger root (peeled)
  • 8 cups of water
  • (optional) 2 tbsp. sweetener of choice, such as raw honey or stevia, etc.  

1 Serving:

  • 1 lemon
  • 1/4 in each piece of ginger root (peeled)
  • 2 cups water
  • (optional) 2 tbsp. sweetener of choice, such as raw honey or stevia, etc. 


  1. Peel ginger and slice into thin pieces.
  2. Bring water to a boil and add ginger.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer covered for about 15-20 minutes. 
  4. Pour water into pitcher and strain to remove ginger. 
  5. Squeeze lemons into water.
  6. Optional- add sweetener and stir. 
  7. Can be served warm or refrigerate and drink cold. 

(I prefer to drink this warm like tea to stimulate digestion, especially during cold months. But, I like to make a pitcher of it to drink cold tea in the summer. You can reduce the portion amount and make 1 serving at a time if you prefer). 

If you are not used to drinking ginger and you find that this is too strong tasting, you can reduce the amount of ginger. Gradually increase the amount each time you make it as you become used to the taste. 

You could also double these portions and make a large batch that will last you for several days!
