RISE AND SHINE MORNING TONIC
Every few months I like to change my morning cleanse routine with a different tonic. This tonic is similar to my usual warm lemon water I usually drink first think in the morning. It is such a digestive cleanse after good nights sleep. So, I am going to switch to this tonic as it is much more potent with multiple health benefits. All you need is a shot glass shot. For the ginger I treated myself to using candied ginger to add just a touch of sweetness. The good news is this makes 8 cups and cost a few dollars which is what one shot costs at your local juicer. Plus, no glass or plastic waste. This tonic can be stored in a sterilized air tight glass jar for a few weeks.
2 lemons quartered
8 gloves of garlic – peeled
1-2 candied ginger (or 1 tablespoon fresh ginger)
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp cinnamon
Optional – fresh mint
Put all ingredients in a blender with 8 cups of filtered water and blend until liquefied.
Pour liquid thru a fine sieve and store in glass jars in refrigerator.
Bonjour, passe une belle journée.
