Recipe: Gluten Free Meyer Lemon Lemonade Syrup

Gluten Free Meyer Lemon Lemonade Syrup

Meyer Lemons.

I think you have all gathered by now that I enjoy Meyer Lemon season. Nothing made me happier than to find loads of Meyer Lemons at Costco a few weeks ago. I took 4 large containers home with me and then wondered, “What should I do with all these lemons?”

I knew I wanted fresh Meyer Lemon juice, but I had a lot of lemons so what else could I make?

How about using the juice to make lemonade? Or even better- Sparking Meyer Lemonade! Lemons are so good for you, especially in the morning to cleanse and detox your system. I hope you make some of this lemonade and enjoy a fresh glass in the morning. I know I have!

* Note: You need a juicer to make this lemonade. One that is powerful enough to juice the meyer lemons. I used Jack Lalanne’s juicer and it worked quite well. *
