This really easy recipe is a compromise between having a healthy drink and a fizzy drink. The lemonade to fruit juice ration can be adjusted to suit your personal preference. And the great thing is you can experiment with other fruit combinations such as orange and strawberry.

A few blackberries were added, this is entirely optional

If you do not like the seeds in the raspberries then these can be removed using a strainer. However, the seeds are very nutritious and they contain antioxidants.
