Meyer Lemons in the Vitamix!

Sunday, March 18, 2012

Just bought home a whole box of lovely Meyer Lemons - shiny round egg-yolk yellow - and am looking for things to do with them that do not involve meat or fat.

Sweeter than regular lemons and slightly floral they are a natural for ices, sorbets and lemonades.

This is my favorites so far - Meyer Lemon Ice & Meyer Lemon and Red Grapes Pink Lemonade

Meyer Lemon Ice

3/4 cup (180 ml) water
1 Meyer lemon, peeled, quartered, seeded
1 to 2 teaspoon lemon peel
1/4 cup (50 g) sugar or other sweetener, to taste
2 cups (480 ml) ice cubes

1. Place all ingredients into the Vita-Mix container in the order listed and secure lid.
2. Select Variable 1.
3. Turn machine on and quickly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
4. Use the tamper to press ingredients into the blades.
5. In about 30-60 seconds, the sound of the motor will change and
four mounds should form.
6. Stop machine. Do not overmix or melting will occur. Serve immediately.

Nutrition facts for 1/2 cup serving: 35 calories, No fat or cholesterol. 1 mg sodium, 9 grams of carbohydrate, no fiber or protein.

Meyer Lemon & Red Grape Pink Lemonade

3 cups water
1 large or 1-1/2 smaller Meyer lemons, peeled, seeded and quartered
1/4 cup Splenda (sweeten to taste with sweetener of choice)
1 cup red seedless grapes, whole
1 cup ice

1. Place all ingredients into the Vita-Mix container in the order listed and secure lid.
2. Select Variable 1.
3. Turn machine on and quickly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
4. If necessary, use the tamper to press ingredients into the blades.
5. Blend on high 30 to 60 seconds until grapes and ice are completely crushed.
6. Stop machine - switch off high turn down to 1 and switch off.
7. Serve over ice.
