Citrus Chillers

All citrus fruits are packed full of vitamin C but whilst we enjoy orange juice and grapefruit juice as drinks we only use lemon and lime juices in cooking or in small amounts. Here are some healthy low fat ways of taking advantages of lemon and lime juice. There’s no orange in these, see the separate page of orange based drinks.

A kitchen designed for healthy eating should contain a blender/smoothie maker and an electric juicer if you can afford it.
