Raw Lemon Tea

Raw Lemon Tea
Serves: Just You
meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, soy-free


Ingredients:

  • 32 oz. Water
  • 1 Lemon (peeled & seeded)
  • 1 spoonful Honey

Directions:
    1. Using a Vitamix, blend all ingredients 3-4 minutes
    2. Drink immediately


    Hoff Thoughts: When eating raw, food should not exceed 118 degrees.  A Vitamix should raise the temperature of food 10 degrees every minute it is run. However, my Vitamix runs hot; it's a good practice to use a meat thermometer to test the temperature based on how long you run your machine.  Three minutes for me = 115 degrees.
