Ever wondered what a Goop-approved lemonade stand looks like?
On Wednesday, lifestyle guru/Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow offered a glimpse when she was photographed manning one along with her kids Apple, 9, and Moses, 7, in their upscale neighborhood in Pacific Palisades, California. Although the little ones obviously created the sign themselves, Paltrow undoubtedly had a hand in the product. Not only was the drink "100% organic," but another one of its selling points was the fact that there had been "no sugar added." Goop readers might recall that Paltrow has shared a lemonade recipe that consists only of freshly squeezed lemon juice and agave syrup (an alternative, all natural sweetener from the agave plant).
Not surprisingly, the lemonade wasn't exactly cheap. The little entrepreneurs were charging $1 for a small and $2 for a large glass! But hey, it was made by Gwynnie.
Cookies, which were also available for $1 each, had most likely been whipped up using one of the many recipes the actress has shared on her website or in one of her three cookbooks. Although it wasn't advertised, we're guessing that the sweet treats were also free of gluten, a protein found in wheat. Paltrow's mentioned before that Moses is allergic to gluten, and wrote in last year's book "It's All Good" that her family, which also includes her husband of more than a decade, musician Chris Martin, sometimes abstains from eating "pasta, bread or processed grains like white rice."
Paltrow, of course, has been criticized in the past for advocating expensive and impractical merchandise on her website. For example, the holiday gift guide that she released in November included items such as a 14K gold necklace with a name charm selling for $3,150 and monogrammed silk pajamas that retailed for $1,093.50.
That makes $2 for a glass of lemonade look like a real bargain!
