Is This the Best Lemonade of all Time?

Since my last blog post on Elvis’s hot peanut-butter sandwich I’ve been interested in finding recipes from other popular musical artists. I’m curious about whether their rock star status transfers from the big stage to the kitchen.

I found one musical artist whose recipe was featured on Oprah. It’s Beyonce Knowles' diet lemonade. It seems Beyonce dropped 20 pounds drinking this stuff. Personally I would have gone with eating tasty calorie conscious foods to get some key vitamins and minerals while dropping the pounds, but then again I’m not a rock star. Kanye West would probably say “Beyonce’s lemonade diet recipe is the best of all time!” but I’m certainly not convinced. Here’s the recipe if you would like to give it a go.

2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp maple syrup
Pinch or two of cayenne pepper
10 oz of water

Is Kanye right? Leave a comment to share your thoughts about this being the best lemonade diet recipe of all time?

  1. This is a recipe for The Master Cleanse. It is not a diet, although it has also been called The Lemonade Diet. It is a cleanse, not a diet. However, most people loose weight while cleansing with this. It is a 10 day + cleanse. If you want more info you can google it. Hope this helps clear things up! :)
