Last time, I shared the truth about Kombucha, one of the latest health food crazes. Unfortunately, it contains sugar and creates alcohol (yes, alcohol!), negating the positive effects of the probiotics in the effervescent tea.
So today, I’ve got a delicious alternative for you. If you like the sweet, tart taste of Kombucha, you’ll love this no-acid lemonade.
You might not have thought it was possible to drink lemonade and Stay Off Your Acid, but as a raw food chef, one of the things I love to do is come up with ways to enjoy your favorite flavors and keep your healthy lifestyle.
So give this a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook.
3 lemons, peeled
3 tbsp. of oil: coconut, flax, or extra virgin olive
1 green apple
6 cups filtered water
1 tsp. sea salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt)
Organic liquid Stevia, to taste (few drops)
Optional: 1 tsp. grated ginger
Optional: Pinch cayenne pepper
Peel lemons and remove seeds.
Add all ingredients to the blender and blend on high speed.
Makes 1 pitcher. Keep refrigerated. Serve and enjoy!
