Lemon Lime Juice Shots
I wanted to share a new juice shots recipe with you. Citrus peels have D-Limonene & Naringenin in them, which is responsible for their beautiful aroma and has a lot of health benefits, which include anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties. Many people often boil citrus peels for this, and use essential oils, but I think juicing them is great, too.
Since I'm doing all I can to remain healthy these days, I thought it would be great to ensure I'm getting these nutrient compounds in my diet each day. I made a few for the fridge and the rest went in the freezer. If I feel my throat is scratchy or a cold coming on, I'll consume one to help support my immune.
The key is to juice with the peel on the lemons and limes to get the full benefits. I've mixed them with apple juice to sweeten it up, but you might want to add coconut water as well. Personally, I like the tartness of them - it makes me pucker every time!
