ginger root * ginger powder * water * ice * cilantro * jalapeno or thai pepper * plan approved sweetener * vitamin C tablets * apple cider vinegar
1.Put 2 cups of water in a blender.
2.Add 1 – 2 inch long pieces of raw ginger to the blender.
3.Add 1/2 tsp. of ginger powder to the blender (the fresh ginger root and the ginger powder are great together – the fresh root gives a bite while the powder rounds out the ginger flavor).
4.Add 1 or 2, unsweetened 1000 mg vitamin C tablets. (This is optional but it really makes more of a zingyish taste and is awesome for your immune system).
5.Add 1 small fresh hot Thai pepper or half a jalapeno pepper. (This pepper addition is again optional but it really gives the ginger a kick and sets your metabolism on fire.)
6.To get the gorgeous green color you see in the picture, add a large handful of fresh cilantro leaves.
7.Blend on high until all ingredients are well broken down. If you have a Blend-Tech or a Vita-Mix this process will be a snap but it can still work with a cheaper blender, you’ll just have to be more patient.
8.Rest a super fine sieve over a quart jar or other suitable receptacle. Strain the liquid through the sieve using a spoon to help until all the goodness goes in. Only the fiber will be left in the sieve.
9.Now add about 2 Tbs. of apple cider vinegar to the jar
10.Shake in Nustevia pure extract powder to taste.
11.Add plenty of ice to fill up the jar to the top then give the drink a good hearty stir with a large spoon.
