There are several variations - from limeade to green tea. You choose which one works for your customers and your budget.

Green lemonade recipe

1 can frozen lemonade concentrate
1 can frozen lime juice (or limeade) concentrate
8 cans water (use the cans from the concentrate)
Sugar to taste
Green food coloring (optional)

Mix ingredients and chill. Add food coloring and/or sugar for desired color and tast. Serve over ice cubes and with desired garnishes.

Depending on the size pitcher you are using, you may need to mix this in two batches. You can either mix the lemonade and limeade separately or you can mix half of each concentrate with 4 cans of water in one pitcher.

Make it your own by taking your favorite lemonade recipe (whether fresh-squeezed or made from powdered concentrate) and just add the green food coloring. It only takes a few drops to make an amazing green color!

You can also add garnishes and other flavors to your green lemonade recipe:

  • Ice cubes with frozen fruit in them. Just take an ice cube tray, put in once piece of fruit per section, fill with water and freeze. Maraschino cherries work especially well.
  • Fresh lemon or lime slices.
  • Kiwi slices.

Looking for something even a little more different? How about trying this Green Tea Lemonade recipe?

Green tea lemonade recipe

4 cups boiling water
6 green tea bags
2 1/2 cups cold water
1 can frozen lemonade concentrate

In a teapot, pour boiling water over green tea bags. Cover and brew 2 minutes. Remove tea bags and let cool. In a large pitcher, combine all ingredients.

Make it your own by brewing the tea as sun tea using the heat of the sun. This is a good approach if you want to have a fresh supply of tea but will not be able to boil water at your lemonade stand.

Ideas to garnish and add flavor to green tea lemonade:

  • Mint leaves. Mint is one of the easiest plants to grow and is very fragrant.
  • Fresh lemon slices.
  • Other frozen fruit. You can buy bags of small frozen fruit, such as raspberries or blackberries, and use them either by themselves or frozen within ice cubes.
