Alicia, a new member of the SANE family discovered how difficult and messy it can be to peel a lemon for her smoothies. In an effort to SANEly peel a lemon she searched the internet for a solution. When she couldn’t find an easy solution, she decided to take it upon herself to share her solution with SANE. We loved the video so much we decided to share it with the rest of the SANE family. Thanks Alicia!
Hi… This is Alicia with the SANE family. If you are anything like me, prepping a lemon for a smoothie can be a bit of a pain. Most times I would spend a few minutes cutting away much of the nutritious parts of the lemon. Sometimes I’d slice it in pieces and make a mess of lemon juice trying to peel the skin off. Well, I finally had enough.
So, I hacked how to peel a lemon in only a couple of slices using a knife and a little finger work. The great part… You maintain the highly nutritious rhine and pith, no messy lemon juice all over the counter, and a nice lemon peel that can be used as a delicious snack in the future.
In an effort to keep others SANE while making SANE Smoothies, I thought I would share the quick process with rest of you.
First, you will need a simple cutting board or plate. The second item you will need is a small knife. And of course, we will need a small or medium-sized lemon.
And this is how it’s done…
