Happy Sunday loves! So, I have been trying the latest and greatest in grocery delivery and I have been LOVING IT! Imperfect produce is a produce delivery service that delivers the produce that would normally be thrown out. Now I know what you’re probably thinking, “wouldn’t they be unsellable if grocers don’t want them?” Absolutely not! They are misshapen, size varies too much, discolored, or just plain excess! I was really impressed with the quality of my organic box of produce!
Imperfect Produce is a produce delivery service that helps prevent grocery waste! Did you know that 1 in 5 pieces of produce doesn’t pass the “perfect” standards of todays grocers? It’s crazy to think of the hundreds of pounds of perfectly imperfect produce that is wasted in the industry, DAILY! Thats why imperfect produce was created, to save the perfectly fine overgrown, overproduction, or misshapen veggies and fruits. Then deliver them right to your door!

So, with my first box of produce, I added fresh organic lemons and got springtime started off with some fresh squeezed homemade lemonade! A favorite childhood treat of mine just in time for warmer weather. And this time, I garnished my lemonade with some fresh organic cucumbers for a fun twist on a warm weather favorite!
Imperfect Produce Lemonade Recipe!
So first, I start off with the three lemons I got in my imperfect produce box. I slice them in half and I used my hands to squeeze all the juice out!
After you squeeze the juice into your bowl/pyrex measuring cup. Then pour in the sugar and mix it together. This is usually where I place the juice and sugar mixture into the microwave for about 30 seconds. Just so the mixture really melts together and mixes well!
After you mix the juice and the sugar together really well, you pour the mixture into the pitcher and add the water. You mix everything together in the pitcher and chill in the fridge!
Throw in the fridge to chill for a while before your meal or want to drink it. Then pour yourself a big ole glass and drink up! Summertime in a cup!
And that my lovely ladies and gents is how you use imperfect produce to make fresh squeezed lemonade! I even made a little recipe card for you loves to share and pin! This was definitely a recipe to store away for those hot summer days for sure!
