Ingredients:

ginger root * ginger powder * water * ice * cilantro * jalapeno or thai pepper * plan approved sweetener  * vitamin C tablets * apple cider vinegar

 

Directions:

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.

 

Enjoy!

    This drink looks so healthy. Tastes great. I’M WORKING ON GETTING A BLEND TEC. This will be my next big goal. Does anyone know where to get the best deal on one? My daughter is eating thm and she is loving the results. Her whole family eats thm. They have always eaten healthy so the kids don’t miss unhealty foods. I’m new to thm so the lingo is a mystery to me. I’m getting there slowly. I started by adding smoothies for breakfast and even got my reluctant roommate looking forward to his smoothie. Now I need to get the book and inform myself. I’m not one to jump all in so I will add things and do changes as I am ready. My daughter thinks this is a great way to eat and be/get healthy.
