A friend of mine shared this recipe with my a couple years ago and it has been a seasonal favorite ever since. You, your family, and friends are going to love this light, sweet, and tart treat so let’s get started!
For this recipe you will need:
- 8 cups of Coconut Water
- The juice of 10 lemons
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups water
- 1 Tbsp Dried Lavender
- 1 drop of Red Food Coloring
- 1 drop of Blue Food Coloring
To begin you will need to make a lavender simple syrup. This will both sweeten your lemonade, and flavor it. Simply combine 2 cups of sugar with two cups of water. Bring it to a boil, and stir until the sugar dissolves. Next add the dried lavender, and allow it to steep for 20 minutes. If you are wondering where to find the dried lavender, you can find it in most health food or specialty stores.
While the lavender is steeping in the simple syrup you can combine the juice of 10 lemons with 8 cups of coconut water. If your coconut water comes with the pulp in it, you will need to strain it out.
Once the lavender is finished steeping strain the dried lavender from the simple syrup. Add 1 drop of red food coloring and 1 drop of blue food coloring. This will give your lemonade that lovely lavender color. Now add it to the coconut water and lemon juice.
Give everything a nice mix together and you are ready to enjoy!

I’m just curious…I’ve just started using essential oils and learning about them. Could I use Lavender EO instead of the dried herb?
Yes, you most certainly could. HOWEVER, make sure that you are using a food grade essential oil. I would think 1-2 drops in the simple syrup would suffice.
Good to know…I’m checking on that. Thank you for the word of caution.
oh lavendar drink! Love that. Saving this one too. Will try it xx
