This post is sponsored by Activia. All thoughts and opinions are our own. One thing I remember about my Grandma is that she always made digestive health a priority.

Theres a new little cafe in my hometown that has popped up called Burnt Lemonade. I actually haven't eaten there yet. I can't even tell you if their lemonade is actually burnt...but the idea of burnt lemonade has stuck in my mind since hearing of this new cafe. Since it's citrus season here in California and all the trees are bursting, my kids and I decided to give it a try.
