In a tall glass, add:
- • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- • 1/10 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
Fill the glass with 8-10 oz filtered water and stir it up.
You should seek to drink your lemonade fresh – within ten minutes of preparing it. When it is fresh, it has the most beneficial enzymes that will help you with nutrition and help you on your Cleanse. These enzymes break down as time passes.
If you find that the mixture is too sweet, you can try it with 1 tablespoon of the maple syrup. If you are tired or don’t have enough energy, you can drink more of the lemonade mixture throughout the day, or you can increase the maple syrup to 3 tablespoons per glass.
If you can’t make your lemonade fresh, for instance if you are on the go all day and away from home, you can mix the maple syrup and the lemonade ahead of time and keep it in a thermos. You can mix enough to make multiple glasses of the lemonade. Then, when you need a glass, measure out four tablespoons of this mixture, add the cayenne pepper (don’t forget to take it with you), and water wherever you are. The maple syrup acts as a preservative for the enzymes in the lemons. Drink the mixture within 10 minutes of adding the water.
