The Lemonade Diet Recipe
- To begin, wash the gallon container with some warm soapy water. Once clean, rinse, dry and set it aside.
- Next, place 8 lemons on a cutting board or counter top. Cut each one into halves using a kitchen knife. Squeeze the juice out of each half into a bowl. Pick out and discard the lemon seeds. You may then add the juice to your gallon container.
- Measure two cups of Grade B maple syrup. Add this to the lemon juice in your gallon container. If Grade B maple syrup is unavailable, a suitable substitute would be organic maple syrup.
- Measure 1.5 tsp. of organic cayenne pepper. Add this to the mixture you already have in the gallon container. Because cayenne pepper is rich in vitamins B and C, this will help to increase your overall blood flow.
- Stir the mixture using a mixing spoon until it is well blended.
- Store the lemonade in your refrigerator.
