EYE-OPENER SMOOTHIE

I whipped this sweet concoction together in just minutes using 2 Tablespoons of candied ginger (for zip), 1 cup kombucha (for probiotics and fizz), 1 teaspoon turmeric (brain food), 1/2 of a pink grapefruit (vitamin C and bioflavonoids) and a half an apple (keeps the doctor away).

Here is my method: Using a sharp knife, cut off the skin of the grapefruit and chop it into chunks. Cut the apple into chunks (don’t peel it). Put apple and grapefruit into blender. Follow with minced candied ginger, turmeric and kombucha (plain or ginger flavored). Throw in 3-4 small ice cubes, blend and serve immediately. Fills two, 12-ounce glasses. What’s not to like?

GOLDEN TEA
Warm a cup of water to 100-110 degrees (no hotter than you would use for dissolving yeast). Dissolve 1 teaspoon raw honey in the water and stir in 1 tsp raw vinegar (with the mother). Add 1 shake cayenne, 2 shakes powdered ginger, and 4 shakes turmeric powder. Stir with a silver spoon. Why silver? Because you’re worth it!
