Do you have too many lemons or some that are almost going bad? Put the whole lemon to good use with this immune boosting and refreshing recipe!

I have been holding on to the many lemons given to me by my mother-in-law.  I found a recipe from The Harvest Kitchen to make immune boosting lemon ice cubes that use the whole lemon. This is a great way to use up your lemons and get extra vitamin C while bringing your smoothies or glass of water to another level! 


  1. Wash then chop 2 – 3 lemons
  2. Put in a high speed blender with a small amount of water
  3. Blend until the consistency is smooth, adding more water if needed 
  4. Pour the lemon mixture into the ice cube trays
  5. Freeze until solid then transfer to a labelled freezer bag or container.

As the days get warmer, it is the ideal time to enjoy a frozen lemon ice cube in a glass of water on your patio.

Stay healthy!
