Homemade ice tea
Adding lemon to homemade ice tea makes it energizing and refreshing, giving it that wonderful zing. It also helps to flush out toxins which is never a bad thing. Our iced tea recipe is caffeine-free and although it’s usually enjoyed in summer, there’s no reason why you can’t have a glass or two a day in winter.

Crumbed steaks with lemon butter sauce
Grab a good bottle of wine and pair it with this steak recipe. The sauce is gorgeously light but big on taste. The lemon’s acidity works wonderfully to offset the protein in the steaks. Remember not to overcook them!
Lemon curd ice cream
A dreamy dessert if ever there was one. This recipe is so simple, and the best thing is that you only need 4 ingredients! It’s not the end of the world if you don’t have an ice-cream maker as the recipe suggests. Simply pop the mixture into a freezer-friendly container, place in the freezer and allow to freeze for 2 hours. Remove and give it a mix to break up the ice crystals that begin to form. Place back in freezer and continue doing this until you have a thick, scoop-able consistency. Click here for other dessert recipes.
