Boil a cup of water, pour it into a heat safe bowl or container and add your fresh or dried lavender.
For lightly flavored lemonade, use about 1/4 cup fresh lavender buds and stems or 1 teaspoon dried lavender.
Allow the lavender to steep until it has released its color, usually about 15 minutes. You can also taste the water to see if the lavender has leeched enough flavor.
1/4 cup fresh lavender or up to 1 teaspoon dried lavender for the lavender tea
1 cup cooled lavender tea (from fresh or dry lavender as noted above)
7 cups cool water
juice of 2 lemons
1-2 droppers liquid stevia or about 1/2 - 1 teaspoon powdered stevia to taste
1 packet Go Live unflavored probiotic or 1-2 capsules of your preferred probiotic or 1 teaspoon acidophilus powder (optional)
