Make Your Own Tonics
Tomorrow it is going to snow, almost 2 feet. Rather than downing a grapefruit, orange and turmeric drink I plan on continuing to make my own tonics.
The recipe is easy and flexible.
I love to combine my favorite juice: right now it includes (carrot, orange, ginger and turmeric) cold pressed and add it to hot water in a 50/50 ratio or sometimes with a bit more hot water.
4 ounces Orange, Carrot, Turmeric and Ginger Juice
6 ounces Boiling Water
1. Combine in a hot mug and sprinkle cinnamon on top.
Why? The juice is more soothing, sure this heats up the juice- but I much prefer the soothing hot juice tonic to chugging an ice cold orange juice.
What else can I do?
Add tea! Brew a bag of your favorite tea: chamomile for example. Add this hot chamomile tea to a delicious green juice loaded with apple. You have an excellent hot tea tonic.
Chai tea? I love adding this to a ginger based juice or shot for a powerful warming tonic.
Carrot juice? This tastes excellent with hot water and a bit of cinnamon.
Beet juice? Beet, pineapple and the like all taste excellent mixed with 50 percent boiling water.
How about matcha? I love hot water mixed with matcha, apple juice and lemon. It is heaven sent.
