Crazy BLENDER Ginger Lemonade

Updated: September 6, 2016

Hello hello! Happy Thursday.

Absolutely so excited to share this odd ball recipe that I randomly found.


None of that Minute Maid bullshit, fake lemonade guys, this is real deal LEMONade. Why LEMONade? Because it’s technically like a whole lemon. No really, like a lemon GOES IN THE BLENDER. Not peeled.

Like the entire lemon.

But not 5 lemons, ONE LEMON. UNO. JUST ONE.

That’s right one measly lemon makes tons of goodness ( you won’t believe how far it goes actually ).

Are you with me still?

LISTEN- when I find something that A.) tastes good B.) is all natural and C.) is weird & different, I have to share it on The Skinny Confidential.

This is weird & different because who the hell thinks of casually throwing an entire lemon, peel & all, into a blender?

Really though, I’d be overly excited to meet this person.

Props on the creativity & curiosity, well played.

I just can’t contain myself with this one. It’s so good.

K, recipe time:

As I said, we’re dealing with ONE lemon.

So simply use 2 cups of water, a handful of ice cubes, & a few tablespoons of coconut sugar for sweetness. Add a sprig of mint for garnish & color. Because how fun are yellow & green together?

The Big Bird yellow-ness from the lemon’s peel is DYNAMIC once it’s blended. Prettiest yellow ever.

BY THE WAY, use a legit blender for this. I live & die for this one ( you know this already if you follow along on Snapchat ).

This recipe says to remember to “wash & scrub the lemon thoroughly. It’s going in the blender, peel and all, so you’ll want to be sure it’s squeaky clean. Next, use a paring knife to cut it into quarters and remove the seeds and the pith ( that thick white stuff in the middle ). When you’re done, toss the lemon quarters in the blender along with the water, ice cubes and sugar. Now the fun part: Blend. Make sure you blend for a full minute ’til it’s ultra-smooth. Anything less and you’ll taste the pulp.” { recipe via }

Ginger was in my fridge too, so I literally cut a thumb size amount off & added it to the mix for a twist. Just throw the root in right with the lemon! LOLZZZZ.

Gotta add a little TSC flair.

Since I filmed this with some friends, we got crazy behind the scenes & added Tito’s gluten-free vodka. Obviously you don’t have to add a splash of vodka but if you’re with friends, why the hell not? Oh, & this was filmed 2 weeks ago; I can assure you I’m still fully committed to No Way Rose January. No alcohol all month!

Ok, soooo tired. Off to read more of Elizabeth Taylor’s biography…it’s SO juicy. You have to read it.

Night, lauryn x

    Interesting, I’m going to try this… Have you tried using whole orange the same way?

    And I love your top, let me know if you decide to sell it (o:

    Been juicing the entire lemon for years (only organic, of course). The peel has 2.5 times the vitamin C than the juice! Great post and recipe. Miss you a lot! Xxx Uncle Dave

    Lauryn!!! I just read something that I thought you would love since you clearly have a love for lemon water and citrus as I do… Microwave the lemon for 10-15 seconds before squeezing or using and it loosens the juices before you squeeze or use!! I am in awe!! Amazing new trick!
