The first time I heard about Lou Corona’s Lemon Ginger Blast recipe, I was watching raw food recipe videos from Dan McDonald, the Life Regenerator. It was years ago when I first started to research the healing power of raw, living foods. Lou has a very powerful, personal testimony. If you’ve never heard him share how he was able to heal from a very serious disease, then I’d encourage you watch him tell his story and share his philosophy in this YouTube video.
Lou attributes a large part of his healing experience to drinking this Lemon Ginger Blast recipe daily. I’m not sure why I put off actually making it for so long – probably because I thought it would taste terrible (just being honest). Instead, I created a much simpler green juice recipe called Green Lemonade.
The other day, I decided to bite the bullet and give the Lemon Ginger Blast a try. I’m happy to report that not only does it NOT taste terrible (it’s quite delicious), but it packs a major anti-inflammatory punch. It’s literally “food as medicine”. My seasonal allergy symptoms have been significantly reduced on the days that I drink it. I’m now planning to make this regularly as part of my daily health regimen.
To see how to make the original version of the Lemon Ginger Blast, you can watch Lou in the video below:
I’ve modified the recipe to make a larger batch of juice (and use some leafy greens that were about to go to waste). This makes about 64 oz of juice that I can drink as 8, 8 oz glasses throughout the day.
Feel free to modify the recipe to fit your taste.
