Make Your Own Lemonade with Young Living Mineral Essence
Mineral Essence from Young Living is a daily must have supplement. It contains many of the daily minerals our bodies need to thrive. But, the taste is not the best!
So to get the benefits into the bodies of our family I decided to add it to our homemade lemonade, using the fresh lemons from our own lemon tree. Some months we have more lemons then we can use and this is the ideal way to make sure they do not go to waste and the health benefits are amazing. The kids love this and it is amazing frozen into ice blocks too for warm summer days and a refreshing treat.
My Homemade Lemonade Recipe:
- 8-10 large fresh lemons
- 4 cups of water, purified if available
- 1/4 cup of YL Agave, or a sweetener of your choice
- 7-8 droppers of Mineral Essence
- Cut the lemons in half to squeeze, we warm ours for 15sec in the microwave to get as much lemon juice as we can out of these beauties.
- We remove the pips and fibers from the lemon juice through a fine strainer and add to your dispenser.
- Add your water to the dispenser with the lemon juice.
- Add your maple syrup and mineral essence and stir to combine.
We put our juice mix into the fridge to cool and then taste and add more water or maple syrup if required. Each lemon is different in its flavouring but it is easy to adjust your sweetness to suit.
To make iceblocks simply add to freezer containers, some extra fruit like strawberries is a nice addition too.
Lemon juice is noted to have many benefits, now I am no doctor so I suggest you do your own research and make your own decisions. I do love that it is a refreshing taste, helps me drink more water daily and it is rich in vitamin C.
To buy Young Living Mineral Essence and other Essential Oil Infused supplements, check out our range. The Young Living Agave is an great sweetener option or use pure maple syrup to taste.
We still found we needed to further strain the lemon juice even after the little juicer we had removed most of the seeds.
Seriously, if they say that every disease can be linked back to a mineral deficiency then I want to make sure my boys have the opportunity to get a natural boost everyday in their diet and the homemade lemonade makes it so easy without any nasty additives.
As the soils we have our foods grown in have so many of the natural minerals depleted from bad farming practices and spray etc then the Young Living Mineral Essence seems like a sensible choice to me.
