After making my Green Lemonade, I decided it would be fun to come up with a pink lemonade recipe that was completely natural.  Most pink lemonades are colored with artificial dyes.  Companies use these dyes in foods because they are cheaper, more stable and very appealing.  The problem with artificial dyes is that they can cause a slew…
