Grating Whole Frozen Lemons Trick

I’m not sure were the article below came from exactly but my Mom sent it to me and I’ve been enjoying using frozen lemons myself and it seems to be very powerful in improving my health.
I use organic lemons and my favorite is to sprinkle the frozen lemon gratings into my organic plain whole fat yogurt in the morning. I also like it on my salads. I also sprinkle it directly into a glass of water. This should be done every day! One word of caution though is to make sure you clean your teeth after using it as you don’t want the acid from the lemons to eat away the enamal on your teeth.

Here is the article my Mom sent me:
Please note I had to remove some of this article because of the unproven medical claims.

This is really good to know. I have heard of the good effects of lemon juice, but this is a different twist on the use of the lemon. Amazing frozen lemons All it is… a frozen lemon Many professionals in restaurants and eateries are using or consuming the entire lemon and nothing is wasted. How can you use the whole lemon without waste? Simple.. place the washed lemon in the freezer section of your refrigerator. Once the lemon is frozen, get your grater, and shred the whole lemon (no need to peel it) and sprinkle it on top of your foods. Sprinkle it to your vegetable salad, ice cream, soup, cereals, noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice, fish dishes, wine…. the list is endless. All of the foods will unexpectedly have a wonderful taste, something that you may have never tasted before.

Most likely, you only think of lemon juice and vitamin C. Not anymore. Now that you’ve learned this lemon secret, you can use lemon even in instant cup noodles. What’s the major advantage of using the whole lemon other than preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes? Well, you see lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself. And yes, that’s what you’ve been wasting. But from now on, by following this simple procedure of freezing the whole lemon, then grating it on top of your dishes, you can consume all of those nutrients and get even healthier. It’s also good that lemon peels are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body. So place your washed lemon in your freezer, and then grate it on your meal every day.

So, give those lemons a good wash, freeze them and grate them. Your whole body will love you for it!!!

  1. Thanks for this article, BUT what about the seeds and isn’t it bitter? ( I cut lemons like a grapefruit and put pulp in my water almost every day. I boil the hull with some spices for a nice smelling kitchen.)

  2. Hi Janet, thanks for the nice smelling kitchen tip! Sometimes, I cut the lemon in half and scrape out any easy seeds, however I’ve also grated the lemons straight without doing anything. The seeds don’t seem too bad but either way is up to you….Regards, Jared

  3. At the price of organic lemons, this is a great idea! Mine are in the freezer raring to go. Will first try it with basted eggs, avocado, mushrooms and green onion (great combo) and will sprinkle on chia seeds.

  4. If your using organic lemons save those seeds and get a primer on growing your own lemons indoor lemon trees. It works. By the way Jared try grating lemon and lime into a pitcher of H20, instead of drinking most drinks that are swill.

  5. We have a number of lemon trees, so i just grate them fresh as needed, I do a great potatoe bake with garlic and lemon zest. what i do do is juice the excess lemons and pour it into Glad ice cube bags. A few of these lemon ice cubes in a glass of water is a great summer drink

  6. I will certainly try this, and many thanks for the tip, though a word of caution, your advice to clean the teeth straight after eating lemons will actually lead to damage being caused to the enamel on your teeth.

    The enamel will remain soft for about half an hour after having had lemon in the mouth, so the advice you would be better giving should be simply to rinse well immediately after having had any citrus or other acidic food in the mouth, but not to actually brush the teeth at that time, for at least another half an hour minimum after rinsing the teeth by swilling some table water round in your mouth or whatever and swallowing, as this gives the tooth enamel time to reharden, and be sufficiently hard not to be brushed away with a toothbrush. Your dentist will confirm this.

      • Do you keep them in a container in the freezer? If so, do they clump together? Or if left in the fridge, how long would you keep them before tossing?

    • Hi Rusty, my grater is approx 8″ x 3″ and I use the smaller holes. I’m still looking for a bigger better grater. Regards, Jared

      • what about this….i put one frozen lemon in my blender and add a little water and liquify it…then i put it in a container and use a table spoon every mornign in my hot water…that would be benificial as well…right?

  7. Teeth do need to be cleaned after drinking or eating lemons, but, they shouldn’t be cleaned straight away. Because the acid does soften the enamel it is best to wait about an hour before cleaning teeth to prevent damaging teeth.

  8. Did you know? “Lemons are possibly the most alkaline foods around, plus, they offer many health benefits. Starting your day with a glass of lemon water is a good way to work towards balancing your pH levels first thing. While lemons are initially acidic, the end result is alkaline.” (Source: Natural News)

    Thanks to you and Mothman777 for the teeth info.


  10. I washed , quartered then puréed in a small food processor; then froze. Question: acidic or alkaline? I am guessing the fruit juice is acidic and th rest is alkaline…help, I am so confused.

    • Lemons are an incredibly alkaline food, believe it or not. Yes, they are acidic on their own, but inside our bodies they’re alkaline (the citric acid does not create acidity in the body once metabolized)

  11. I love grated lemon and have used for a long while. can anyone suggest an electric grater which would cope whith frozen lemons (UK) as I have week wrists and find this quite a chore wasting some of the lemon

  12. I love grated lemon on every thing even ice cream ,eggs, steak ,salad,every thing you eat ,and did you know that cancer cant live in an Alkaline environment and that is what grated lemons do they make your body Alkaline ,Lemon is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells .It is 10,000 times stronger then chemotherapy . I am still looking for a greater that you can put the lemon in and turn the handle .

  13. Hi do the lemons have to be organic? Im living on a tight budget & organic is so much more expensive. Im new to this lemon thing but currently have lemons freezing. Is there a certain amount you should consue in a day?
    many thanks

    • Hi Kel, all I can do is recommend organic but you will have to do what you can do. At times they don’t have organic and I buy regular but I personally much prefer organic. As far as the consumption amount, that is entirely up to you and your needs. Since I feel pretty good now, I only do this a few times a week and sometimes I just squeeze lemon juice into a glass of water. We all have to do what works for us.

      Many Regards,

  14. Hi there, can anyone tell me why it is recommended to freeze lemons first and then grate? I threw a bunch of lemons (about three dozen) in to my ninja and spread it on to portions of freezer paper, folded it, and then froze it. Now I can simply cut the desired amount and add it to anything. It’s easier and convenient. However, it’s recommended almost everywhere to freeze the lemon first. Does it really matter when it comes to health benefits?
