Chlorella Lemonade

A Refreshing, Energizing
Blast of Freshly-Squeezed Lemon

2 organic lemons or limes
5-6 tablespoons organic grade B maple syrup
1-5 teaspoons chlorella powder (optional)

(1/2 scoop equals approx. 2 teaspoons)
organic cayenne pepper (optional)

Suggested preparation:

Squeeze fresh lemon juice from organic lemons (organic limes may be used as well). In a quart jar put 6-7 tablespoons of lemon juice, 5-6 tablespoons of organic grade B maple syrup, and 1/4 teaspoon or more cayenne pepper. You can also add 3-10 grams (1/4 scoop to 1 scoop) of chlorellla powder. Fill the rest of the jar with water and shake.

If you decide to use the pulp as well, it is easier to put peeled lemons (maybe with a little skin) into a blender and blend with water. In this case use 2-3 lemons (or limes) per quart. As before add 5-6 tablespoons of organic grade B maple syrup and 1/4 teaspoon or more of cayenne pepper per quart.

It is easiest to make up enough of your lemonade drink for the day in the morning (you can use quart mason jars). You can drink up to 2-3 quarts a day. Drink a glass whenever you are hungry.
