Hot Green Drink [low carb]
I wanted a hot green drink that was low carb, anti-inflammatory, not thick, good tasting.
An enjoyable hot green drink that is more like a tea. I did not want so many greens in it that it was thick and hard to drink. Or so green tasting that I would have to add apple or other fruit to make it taste good. Adding fruit sugars will take away from the anti-inflammatory benefit of the green drink.
Hot Green Drink Ingredients
When I have Swiss Chard, I add a small leaf
My cup for the hot green drink is huge, 700ml (2 and 1/2 cups). An opportunity to be kind to your kidneys and to make sure you are hydrated with a yummy, nutritious, alkaline drink.
Pour the green drink from the blender into your cup and then fill it with boiling water and it is ready to add all this goodness to your amazing body and nourish each cell. This green drink is very good for making your gut happy by feeding all the good bacteria.
The great thing about this green drink is that it tastes great without added fruit sugars. No taste dominates, it is the fresh ginger that gives a bright tang.A hot green drink that is low carb, anti-inflammatory, not thick and good tasting. Click To Tweet
What is so good about the ingredients?
I love fresh ginger and add it to a lot of my sweet or savory cooking. It is very kind to the gastrointestinal tract, aids the elimination of intestinal gas and spasms. It is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Read this article on amazing ginger by Jenny from Au Naturale Nutrition.
