Probiotic Lemonade Recipe

Probiotic Lemonade Recipe



Yield 8 +

A fizzy and tangy fermented lemonade that has a boost of probiotics.



  1. In a gallon size glass jar, stir together sugar and just enough hot water to dissolve the sugar.
  2. Add lemon juice and fill the jar about ¾ full with filtered water.
  3. Make sure the liquid is at room temp and add the whey.
  4. Cover tightly and let sit on the counter for 2-3 days. 
  5. After 2-3 days, keep in refrigerator and drink 4-6 ounces per day. The flavor will continue to develop.
  6. Since the sugar ferments out, it is rather tart. Add a couple drops of stevia if it is too tart for you!


You can add about 1 teaspoon of molasses to the sugar before dissolving to add extra minerals and a bit more sweetness. 

Blending the final product with ice cubes will make a delicious slushie (or margarita if you're using limes!).
