True Lemon packets have quickly become one of my favourite new products of 2014. True Lemon packets capture an entire wedge of fresh citrus fruit (lemon, lime, grapefruit or orange) through the power of flash freezing and crystallization. Unlike many other big brand drink mixes, True Lemon packets are:
- all natural (100% crystallized citrus)
- affordable (as low as 8 cents per single serve packet)
- extremely versatile (over 22 different ways to use!)
Today I'm sharing 22 different ways you can use True Lemon packets every day.
- Drink more water without adding artificial sweeteners or calories and without the mess of real lemons. Add a packet of True Lemon to a full glass or bottle (250 - 500 mL) of cold water.
- Carry them with you so you always have fresh citrus taste on hand (without the fruit flies).
- Use True Lemon packets in place of lemon, lime or orange juice in recipes. (1 packet = 1 tablespoon of juice or, for a stronger taste, 2 packets = 1 tablespoon of juice) Mix it up and get crazy, combine True Lemon with True Lime; True Orange with True Lemon or find your favourite combo!
- Make your own True Lemon-ade, True Lime-ade and True Orange-ade by combining with your favourite sweetener in a glass or pitcher. Sound like too much work? Check out our line of True Lemon Lemonade single serve packets here.
