First up, we have a yummy and healthy green smoothie that's perfect for breakfast or as an afternoon snack. It's easy to make and super nutritious, so you can start your day off right. All you need is:
- 1 banana
- 1 cup of spinach leaves
- 1/2 cup of chopped pineapple

If you're looking for something a little more indulgent, try our lavender lemonade. This drink is perfect for sipping on a lazy afternoon, and the floral flavor of the lavender is a perfect match for the tangy lemon. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 cup of fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 cup of honey
- 1/4 cup of dried lavender flowers
- 6 cups of water
- Sliced lemons and fresh lavender sprigs for garnish
First, combine the honey and lavender flowers with 1 cup of water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let steep for 10 minutes. Strain out the lavender flowers and discard.
In a large pitcher, combine the lemon juice, lavender honey syrup, and remaining 5 cups of water. Stir well to combine. Chill the lemonade in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving. Serve over ice, garnished with sliced lemons and fresh lavender sprigs.
Both of these drinks are perfect for sipping on a sunny day, and they’re easy to make ahead of time for a party or get-together.

And let's not forget about one of the all-time classic spring drinks: watermelon lemonade! This sweet and tangy drink is perfect for any springtime gathering, and it's super easy to make. Here's what you'll need:
- 1 small seedless watermelon, cubed
- 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1/2 cup honey
- 4 cups cold water
- Ice cubes
- Fresh mint leaves for garnish
Start by blending the cubed watermelon in a blender until smooth. Strain the puree through a fine mesh sieve into a large pitcher, pressing on the solids to extract as much juice as possible. Discard the solids.
Add the lemon juice and honey to the watermelon juice and stir well to combine. Slowly pour in the cold water, stirring until the lemonade is well mixed. Add ice cubes to the pitcher to chill the lemonade.
To serve, pour the watermelon lemonade into glasses filled with ice and garnish with fresh mint leaves. Enjoy the sweet, fruity flavors of this delicious drink!
