my super energy cocktail

IMG_9425

This is my absolute favorite anti-flu / detox / energizing cocktail that I make during winter time (and the rest of the year when I need a little detox action – see below) . Here are the details to my super power mixture that can be used hot or cold…

You will need (for 1 glass or cup):

* 1 freshly squeezed lemon – for the vitamins

* grated ginger (it’s up to you how much you want to throw in – I always put a LOT coz’ it really helps!) – for the immune boosting /antioxidant / anti-inflammatory action

* natural sweetener (I use agave syrup or honey)

When I feel I’m getting a cold

I drink one cup 3-4 times a day (using honey instead of agave syrup), I’ll also have a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice at breakfast and if I’m really feeling weak already, I take a long hot bath with eucalyptus or lavender essential oil.

When I need an extra energy boost in the morning

One glass before breakfast (make sure the water is lukewarm) and I can guarantee you’ll feel energetic until the evening. I usually do it every day for 2 weeks in spring and autumn…

When I need a little detox

It is not a secret that I LOVE myself some good vino but sometimes I can overdo it a little (woopsie) so if I feel a bit “rough” in the morning, I’ll have this drink poured in a 1.5 liter bottle (triple the ingredients) that I drink throughout the day.

On a side note, make sure to check ALOHA‘s cool website, especially the recipe section that I use as a daily inspiration!
