True Lemon Recipe - Balsamic Strawberries with Whipped Mascarpon CheeseYes, True Lemon is for more than just adding to your water or tea! True Lemon works incredibly well with all sorts of fruits, veggies, meats, deserts and more.

This True Lemon recipe is absolutely beautiful and super easy to make. Zesty True Lemon works magic when paired with sweet strawberries, heavenly mascarpone cheese and one of our favourites for almost anything - balsamic vinegar.

Through a patented process of cold pressing and crystallization, our friends at True Citrus have figured out a way to capture a full wedge of lemon at peak ripeness and flavour. It's so good that in taste tests, True Lemon was preferred over fresh lemons 7 out of 10 times! That's crazy!

Say good-bye to stale lemon juice in fake, plastic lemon bottles, dried up and left over lemons wrapped in plastic, fruit flies, seeds, sticky counter tops and more. True Lemon is truly awesome.
