Spicy Lemonade is a fresh treat for those long, hot Florida days and a powerful internal detox juice. The original “spicy lemonade” cleanse was developed by Dr Elson Haas who considered fasting and juice cleansing the key to good health. You don’t have to abstain from solid foods, however, to enjoy the health benefits of drinking the juice. Kids and adults love the tangy yet slightly sweet drink with a hint of spice, especially during a long day in the Florida sun!
Ingredients for the concentrate:
- 3 large, juicy lemons
- 1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper
- 1 Tbs Agave nectar or maple syrup
- 10 oz fresh spring water
Juice the lemons into a glass jar and add the remaining ingredients to make a concentrate which can be stored in the refrigerator until needed. When a refreshing glass of Spicy Lemonade is needed, simply shake well then add 3 oz of the mixture to 10 oz of fresh spring water and serve over ice. For an elegant presentation, float a sliver of lemon in the glass.
