We at Yogi London have given up booze for lent. We’re hardly big boozers as yogi Londoners but Lent gave us a chance to completely rid our bodies of alcohol and to enjoy the benefits of a cleaner system. It really gives you much more energy, time and opporunities for exploring new things. Like this delicious lemonade from Gwyneth Paltrow’s blog GOOP (YL review of GOOP and other foodie blogs)
Agave syrup is the sweet nectar of the Agave plant. It is full of minerals and has a low glycemic index, making it far healthier than white sugar. Serve up a tall, cool glass of this lemonade and enjoy without the downward spiral sugar crash afterwards.
TIME: 5 minutes
- 1/2 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1/2 cup light agave syrup
- 1 quart of water
- a few lemon slices for garnish, if you like
Mix everything together, adding a bit more of any ingredient, if necessary, so it’s just the right mix of sweet and tart for your taste.
