Lemon Beverage Ideas

1. Simple fresh squeezed lemons with hot water and honey is a soothing tea which can serve as a coffee replacement; it’s readily available in restaurants and from cafes and coffee shops when you’re on-the-go.

2. Try mixing 1 cup hot water, ¼ lemon, and 1 tsp ground flax seed as a liver tonic, to help  aid digestion and sooth painful stomach ulcers.

3. During the summer we love mixing fresh squeezed lemons with water and stevia to taste. Try it as an alternative to high calorie juice and iced tea!
