I use this recipe about once a week to make about 2 gallons of lemonade. I like the taste and it does help flush my system. I have been using it to help me lose my target weight. This recipe is straight from the website I originally found it on, the only additions I make to mine is I add sliced strawberries, lemons and sliced raspberries to mine. It comes out a very pink color but it tastes great and I don’t mind drinking it like I do straight water.
The Master Cleanser Recipe – The Ingredients You’ll Need To Prepare The Master Cleanse Lemonade
There’s only a few ingredients you’re going to need for the master cleanse, but it’s important that you use the exact products I’m going to tell you about and don’t make any substitutions.
Unlike other diets the Master Cleanse doesn’t require any exotic or expensive ingredients. In fact it might be the most cost effective diet in history.
Main Ingredients for the Master Cleanse Recipe
- Pure Filtered Water
- Grade B Organic Maple Syrup, Formaldehyde free
- Organic Cayenne Pepper
- Organic Lemons
- Sea salt – Unrefined, (Not iodized) or Epsom Salt
The Master Cleanse Recipe
The Master Cleanse works just how it sounds; you consume primarily lemonade for the entire time you’re on the diet. So the recipes for the diet itself are fairly simple. You should drink a minimum of 60 oz of lemonade a day, but can drink more if you like. You can also drink as much water as you want. I suggest you consume your body weight in ounces of water.
Below are two different recipes. The first is for a single serving of the master cleanse lemonade. The second will make 6 servings
#1 (single serving):
- 2 Tablespoons of organic lemon Juice (about 1/2 a Lemon)
- 2 Tablespoons of Organic grade B maple syrup (not the commercial maple flavored syrup you use on pancakes)
- 1/10 Teaspoon Cayenne pepper powder
- Ten ounces of filtered water
#2 (60 oz. daily serving):
- 60 ounces of filtered water
- 12 Tablespoons of organic grade B maple syrup
- 12 Tablespoons of organic lemon juice
- 1/2 Teaspoon cayenne pepper powder
There are a couple important things to remember when preparing the lemonade.
For one, the lemon juice used must be fresh squeezed. This cannot be emphasized enough. It is necessary to use fresh produce. Canned juice won’t work and will erase most of the benefits of using the master cleanser diet.
Also, the maple syrup must be grade B maple syrup, not the sugar filled syrup that is used at the breakfast table.
The cayenne pepper might seem unnecessary, but it is actually very important. Not only does it help to add a bit of a kick, but the pepper helps to break up mucus and increases healthy blood flow. It also is a good source of B and C vitamins, commonly referred to as Super Vitamins due to their many benefits for the body.
Mixing teas with the recipe is one way to help modify things, just make sure It’s decaffeinated tea because caffeine can restrict blood vessels and we want to keep your body passages as open as possible.
Adding a Natural Laxative To Help Flush Out Your System
Taking a laxative will speed up the detoxing process, and help your body eliminate waste.
I prefer ingestible laxatives like, sea salts, and herbal tea. These are ideal methods for cleaning the colonic tract without the harmful effects of colonics and enemas.
Drinking 1 teaspoon of unrefined non-iodized sea salt mixed with 25-35 ounces of water will flush out your system.
It’s best to use either of these laxatives (or both of them) 2 times a day. I’ve found it best to take them in the morning and before I go to bed.
Also, I advise you give yourself at least an hour and a half before you go out when you do this. These laxatives will work fast, and you will discover why you should probably be at home near a bathroom when you use them.
