Natural Lemon-aid

1 lemon

4 cups of filtered water

2 big pinches of powdered stevia

Makes 4 cups

This recipe is so simple and has so many benefits. It is a nice alternative to juice, pop or other sugary beverages and works for just about everyone since most people like lemon-aid.If you enjoy carbonation, you can make it with sparkling mineral water for a fun twist.

This recipe is helpful to drink first thing in the morning since it is a good source of vitamin C, stimulates digestive juices and supports the liver to cleanse toxins. If you do not like the flavour of stevia (some people don’t), you can sweeten this recipe with some  honey instead. Raw, unpasteurized honey has more minerals, enzymes and anti-bacterial properties then pasteurized honey.


Fill a container with 4 cups of filtered water. Juice a lemon by squeezing it directly into the container (look out for seeds) or use a lemon juicer. You could also use a lemon juicer and then add the lemon juice to your water. Add stevia (or honey) to taste; stir and enjoy.Feel free to add more lemon if you like it stronger.
