This is a powerful anti-inflammatory drink AND super nourishing and healing to the adrenals as well. This is one of the first things I make with any sign of a cold or sickness. It taste like a yummy orangesicle!
It takes a minute to peel the lemons, but the pith contains bioflavonoids, a healing component. 🍋🍊

- 2 lemons ((peeled))
- 1 1/2 cup filtered water
- 1/2 – 1 tsp ground tumeric
- 1 tsp MCT oil (or 1/2 teaspoon extra-virgin coconut oil)
- 1 tsp protein powder or collagen
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 pinches salt ((generous))
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ginger powder
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 pinch clove
- 1/4 tsp stevia extract
- 2,000 – 4,000 mg Vitamin C powder
- 1-2 drops lemon essential oil
- ice cubes
Peel the rind off the lemon(s) using a sharp knife. Leave as much of the white pith as possible as it has loads of nutritional benefits. I used the whole lemon, minus the seeds, if using organic lemons.
Slice each lemon into quarters. Remove the seeds, and place the lemon pieces into your blender.
Add water and all of the remaining ingredients besides the ice cubes. Blend well.
Place the blended mixture into a quart jar. Add ice cubes and more water to fill the jar to the top. Put a tight lid on the jar and shake before drinking.
**I double this recipe!
You might find that the drink is still a little too “bitter” due to the turmeric. I recommend starting with ½ tsp of turmeric and increasing from there if desired. After making the drink, if you still find it to be too bitter, you can add more stevia and/or vanilla to taste.
