We love lemons, lemonade, lemoncello on a patio in Italy, mom’s lemon pudding … oh the list goes on!
Today’s recipe comes from a member of our yoUnlimited community, Susan Pearse, founder of The Green Diet.
Lemons are citric acid but in our body, they become a potent alkalinizer for good health. They are also a low glycemic index fruit and a mild, natural diuretic.
If you roll a lemon on the counter, with fairly firm pressure down on it, as you roll it will yield more juice? Try it!
1 cup of juice from fresh organic lemons
1/4 cup white sugar
4 cups water
Boil 1 cup of water with sugar until the sugar dissolves – cool.
Mix sugar water with remaining water and lemon juice and store in a glass juice container.
Pour over ice and enjoy.
* Note, you could substitute agave for the sugar if you like.
