Lemons, Lemons and more Lemons ……

So we have all heard that Lemons Juice is good for us, but what really is it doing for us?!

The two biggest benefits of Lemons are they are strong in antibacterial, antiviral and immune boosting powers and they can also help in weight loss as Lemon Juice is a digestive aid and liver cleanser.

Since living in California I became a big fan of freshly made lemonade and found it impossible to get when i came back to Ireland so decided to make my own (with less of the sugar thats recommended)

What you will need: –

1. Bag of Lemons (4/5 perfect) Organic ones if you can get them.  I buy mine in Lidl.
2..1/4 cup of caster sugar
3. Frozen Rasberries (optional) Purchased these in Lidl also.

Firstly squeeze the Lemons and put juice into a small saucepan with the 1/4 cup of sugar.  Simmer slowly to make a syrup.

This is the Size cup i use for the 1/4 part of Sugar.

Once syrup is made,  i pop into a large jug which is already half filled with cold water and i add the Frozen Rasberries and pop in the fridge.

I make this every week its really nice and the Rasberries takes the bitterness out of the Lemons.

Hope you enjoy it Ladies xoxo
