Probiotic Lemonade

IMG_2896

On searching for a lemonade recipe I found this http://www.aflockinthecity.com/2012/03/25/healthy-homemade-lemonade-packed-with-probiotics-and-the-kids-love-it/and decided to try it as I had yogurt separating in the fridge. It’s light, refreshing and a little effervescent, my husband and I are both enjoying it. This recipe calls for sugar but I noticed in the comments section someone has used honey and I will try this next time.

Lemonade:

12 juicy lemons

1/2 – 1 cup cane sugar (I used not quite a cup)

1 cup whey

water

1 gallon jar, sterilised

Juice the lemons and pour into jar. I dissolved the sugar in some water in a pan then added to juice. Add whey and top up with water.

Leave on the bench for two days before drinking. I am now into day 4 and this still tastes really good.

A bonus, I got 2 jars of cleaning liquid from the peels 🙂  https://quarteracrelifestyle.wordpress.com/2013/06/25/diy-lemon-cleaning-liquid-and-firestarters/

I had to use their photo as my kitchen is too dim on winter evenings. This is, as the title suggests, delicious. It has a light, fluffy sponge on top and lemony sauce on the bottom. I added a little more lemon juice and rind to mine.

  • 150g unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon rind
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups caster sugar
  • 3/4 cup self-raising flour, sifted
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • icing sugar mixture, to serve

Preheat oven to 175 deg C. Cream the butter, sugar and lemon rind. Add egg yolks and beat. Add milk, lemon juice and flour and mix on low speed. Beat the egg whites until stiff (but not dry) and fold into the mixture. Pour into greased oven proff dish which is sitting in an oven dish with hot water in. Place all in oven and bake for around 50 – 60 minutes till golden on top and sponge is set. Cool a little and dust with icing sugar, serve with cream or ice cream.
