This summer, why not prepare something quick and easy for the family to eat before (or during) some fun activities?

3-4 thumb sized cloves of garlic

1/4 tsp. Himalayan salt


1/4 tsp. cracked black pepper (or more to taste)


1/4 cup water

4-5 lemons, juiced

 

Place all ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth.
