Whole Lemon Lemonade August 03 2017, 0 Comments
I love lemonade, but juicing a bunch of lemons always seems arduous. I recently came across the idea of 'blender lemonade' using the entire lemon, including the peel so I wanted to try it out. This lemonade looks slightly different than the traditional drink- it's opaque and foamy at the top, but it tastes pretty similar. Here's the recipe I made:
Prep time: 5 mins
Yield: 2 servings
Serving size: 1 8oz mason jar
- 2 lemons
- 4 cups of water
- 1 cup of ice cubes
- 1/4 cup sugar
- Cut the lemons in half lengthwise, and then cut each half into quarters lengthwise.
- Cut the pith off each wedge and knock the seeds out.
- Place the lemon slices in a blender, along with the water, ice cubes and sugar. Blend until smooth.
- Strain the mixture.
- Poor into jars.
- Optional: add vodka :)
