Lemonade, as you may know, is a refreshing drink, perfect for the hot summer days. But few people know that a lemonade can help you take care of your stomach problems. Even if you have a balanced diet, from time to time, you feel that your body needs a little help. Let’s find out how you can help your digestive system to work better with just one lemonade.
The answer to clean your digestive system is to take a probiotic. Probiotics can be found in our body, but we can take them from food and supplements too. In order to clean our body from bacteria, we need to have a balance regarding the probiotics in our body. Probiotic supplements can be very expensive and not everyone can afford them. So, in order to help you, we will talk about how to make probiotics at home and how to consume them.
Here is a lemonade recipe that is very delicious and contains probiotics. As a result, it will help your digestive system to maintain itself clean and healthy. You will need:
- 1 cup of whey
- juice from 10 lemons
- one gallon jar
- 3 quarts of filtered water
- ¾ cup of sugar
Now, you can start making the probiotic lemonade. Put the sugar at the bottom of the jar. Add 1 or 2 cups of hot water to dissolve the sugar. When the sugar is dissolved, you can add the lemon juice and then the filtered water. Add the whey and cover the jar. Let the jar covered for 3 days. The drink will be maintained at room temperature, but, after 3 days, you can put it in the refrigerator. Now, you can start drinking it everyday. The lemonade will lose its sweetness, but if you want to have a sweeter taste, you can add some stevia. You can use limes if you like them more, instead of lemons. If you want it to be cooler, you can blend it with some ice cubes and you will have a cold and refreshing smoothie.
How can you make the whey used in the lemonade? We will tell you right now. You will need fat yogurt, just about 32 ounces, a bowl, some cheesecloth and rubber bands. Pour the yogurt into the cheesecloth, that was previously tied to the bowl with a rubber band. The liquid that remained in the bowl is the whey that you will need to use for your lemonade. It’s that simple.
Now, you can make this lemonade at home to strengthen and cure your digestive system. It is easy and, with a simple drink, you can improve your health and be more careful with your body. Drink it everyday and you will see the results quickly.
