refreshing summer drink.

Its been a hot summer and so what could possibly be better then a refreshing drink! Good Girl Moonshine to the rescue! I first heard about this drink when I started reading the book Trim Healthy Mama. ( you do not need to be a mama or making plans to be one to follow this way of eating.) I was unsure of how anything could possibly be good with ginger and apple cider vinegar in it. After a couple sips I was hooked! And since then I've had so much fun making different flavors.

 Fill a quart sized jar with water and ice.
Add a generous drizzle of raw apple cider vinegar (I use 1-2 Tbs).
Add 1 tsp of ginger powder
Add a few shakes of pure stevia extract powder or truvia to taste
Add 5-8 mint leaves  
Serve over Ice and with a fresh strawberry

So refreshing and yummy! And the best part is there are so many health benefits to this drink! 

Some of the goodness apple cider vinegar has to offer are-

-It is abundant in potassium which is imperative for growth and building muscles, the transmission of nerve impulses, heart activity and preventing brittle teeth and hair loss.

-It encourages weight loss by breaking down fats to be used instead of stored in your adipose tissue.

-It is loaded with acetic acid which slows the digestion of starch and lowers the rise in glucose levels that occur post mealtime.

-It lowers bad cholesterol and helps to regulate blood pressure.

-It is a powerful detox tool and improves bowel function

-It clarifies the skin

And ginger has a long list of benefits as well! Yay for yummy healthy living!
