If you’re looking for the perfect refreshing Lemonade for the Summer then you are reading the right post! Before I dive right in and tell you a little bit about the benefits of citrus, I should really thank the genius behind the inspiration.  Thank you Edgar from @edgarraw for this brilliant and easy idea that you shared with all of your snap chat viewers not too long ago.  As soon as I watched you make it I knew I was going to have to recreate it myself.

Hi Maria, Love the idea to produce my own lemonade. I received a juicer last week and I’m still learning to use it. Maybe this recipe is a great idea to try Lemon in this new machine. Do you think it can work in a juicing machine as well? xoxo Janine

Hey Sweetheart!!How are you? That is so exciting. I have always wanted one but I have never got around to it! I totally think it will work in a juicer! I reckon you should add a tad bit of Cayenne to this too! Or even ginger, as those are such amazing ingredients to add flavour! Let me know how it went/goes beautiful!! XXX
