Lemons are one of the most nutritious and beneficial foods you can consume as they are high in important ingredients, one of those fruits I always like to stock in my kitchen.

One way to assure you are never short of these yellow vitamin bombs is to freeze them. Yes, it’s perfectly all right to do that. So why should we freeze lemons?

“A new study has shown for the first time how limonoids, natural compounds present in lemons and other citrus fruit, impede both ER+ and ER- breast cancer cell growth. This sheds new light on the importance of citrus fruit for breast cancer prevention and supports past studies which showed fruit consumption may lower breast cancer risk.”

Despite its powerful anti-carcinogenic properties, the lemon peel also detoxifies the body and protects it from bacteria, fungi, parasites, and worms. Yet, we will reveal you a simple, but delicious way to consume this beneficial fruit- by freezing it!

Many people take the entire lemon, wash it, and put in a freezer safe bag. But what I like to do is: juice the lemons and cut up the peel, pour the juice into an ice cube tray and place the pieces of peel into the tray holes. When the lemons are entirely frozen, grind them, and add them to your dessert, ice cream, smoothie, or salad.
