LactoProBiotic Lemonade

Serves 4 Rated:

Gotta admit I love a freshly made glass of homemade lemonade...and this is just another great way to use up whey...(I think you’ve heard enough of my no whey jokes, but oops, there I did it again. I like to think I’m funny!)

So if you are making yoghurt or fresh cheese, you will end up with a lot of whey. What to do with it? I did make a little video which is over on YouTube with a few suggestions. I hope you are keeping up with my daily video tips. They’re available almost every day over on Facebook, and just in case you’re an instagrammer, (while we're all about social media), go follow me there as well! But I digress...

This recipe will get you using up all your’ll find yourself making ricotta cheese, just to get more whey. (I can’t resist.) Yes whey.

Go and do.
