Lemons are a great detoxer! Try our Meyer Lemon Shake!
It’s Meyer Lemon season and time to try this delightfully sweet and tart shake.
PERSONAL NOTE: I was given the gift of a Lemon Meyer tree two years ago when I moved to my delightful new apartment. At first it lived in my bedroom, flooding it with the rich scent of lemon. It prompted me to sing a lot: “Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet. But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat!” I learned how to use a tiny brush to pollinate and remarkable six tiny lemons grew to full size for me to harvest in November. The same thing happened this year. When I moved the tree inside before the first hard frost, again there were the sweet-tangy flowers. And this November, six more huge lemons that are amazing in scent and taste. This shake is delightful with them.
