Yesterday morning, I woke up feeling so ‘toxic’. I was tired, restless and moody and I kept sneezing all over the place. I was dragging myself aimlessly around the house. I knew I needed more than my usual green smoothie so I decided to whip up a simple pick-me-up drink: a Detoxifying Coco Lemonade. Read on to learn how you can create this simple and refreshing tonic!
1 glass of Coconut water
juice from 1/2 lemon
1/4 tsp chopped ginger
2-3 mint leaves
honey (to sweeten)
How to? Throw all the ingredients and 1-2 of the mint leaves into the blender. Run it for about 10 seconds on high speed. If you don’t mind ginger chunks, you can simply mix everything and stir with a spoon but let it sit for about 5 mins before drinking. Serve with ice and with 1-2 of the remaining mint leaves.
This drink did not just give my lousy mood a kick in the backside but also gave me a sudden boost of energy. Coconut water is like your regular sports or energy drink — only much, much healthier and tastier! The ginger, lemon and honey trio is an old homemade remedy for flu and cold symptoms. How’s that for multitasking?
