Secret Lemonade Drinker
This one was inspired by Annie Jubb, one of my favourite raw nutritionists and chefs, and her electrolyte lemonade recipe.
In the summer, I drink this nearly every day, it’s especially good after hot yoga or any kind of sweaty exercise where you want to replenish your electrolytes. I love it because it ticks about every single health box.
You’ve got turmeric, nature’s top inflammatory; you’ve got flax oil for the EFAs and to help with the absorption of that all-important curcumin; then there’s lecithin to help with the breakdown of fats; lemons for a super alkalinity boost; coconut water for the electrolyte minerals: and lastly a bit of ferment to increase the potency, and add a light fizz.
I am so addicted to this drink! It has all the cool calming effects of a green juice but is so much easier to make and more fun to drink.
- A blender
- 3 lemons
- 1 litre coconut water
- 250 ml kefir or kombucha

Peel the lemons, and put the flesh into the blender with all the other ingredients.
Blend for a minute until it goes smooth and serve immediately.
Will keep for 24 hours.
