    Paleo Lemonade

    Grace had cooking class at preschool today. She came home with a paleo lemonade recipe (from a non-Paleo school). I was impressed.

    1 whole lemon
    1c green grapes
    1c red grapes
    1c ice.

    Slice lemon into pieces, rind and all. Place into blender. Add red & green grapes. Blend. Serve over ice, or blend with ice for smoothie.

    Wouldn't the bitter white pith of the lemon undercut some of the sweetness added by grapes? When I really am craving some lemonade (which is like once a year maybe) I just juice a lemon, zest some of it, and add stevia to water.

    My daughter gave me the recipe when she got in the car & told me all about the yummy lemonade she had in school, soooo... I dunno. Be brave & try it out? You can always sweeten to taste if it's too intense.

    I will definetly try it as a smoothie. I would do half grapes, half vegetable though (cabbage, probably). Lately, i am all into mixed veggie-fruit smoothies.

    Hunh! That sounds good. I might go for Meyer lemons to mitigate the aforementioned bitter pith (or use a regular lemon, scoop out the inside, and add the zest), but it sounds solid!

    One of my faaaavorite lemonades in the world is made with milk. OMG. So good. Wonder if it would work with this?

    Ask and ye shall receive!

    This is from a restaurant called "Miss Aimee B's" in St. Charles, MO. It's like if Paula Deen decided to open a lady's tea house in Missouri. The food is amaaaziiiing.

    This is the original recipe, so prepare for sugarfication!

    Ingredients
    2 Medium Lemons
    1.5 cups Sugar
    1 pint milk (2 cups)

    Wash the lemons, cut off the ends, and quarter them. Hand squeeze the juice from the lemons into a bowl. In either a blender or food processor, coarsely chop the lemons. DO NOT PUREE! Add the coarsely chopped lemons to the bowl with the juice. Next add the 1.5 cups sugar, stir well, and let the mixture set for 30 minutes. This allows the sugar to pull the juices out of the lemons. Finally, add the 2 cups of milk. Stir well again. Cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight.

    To serve, strain the concentrate to remove the rinds and seeds. Fill a glass with 1/2 cup lemonade mixture, 1/2 cup club soda, and 1/2 cup crushed ice. Stir well. Serves 6.

    Optional: 1/2 shot vodka or gin.

    Wouldn't you end up with sour, curdled milk by mixing lemon juice with it?
