Mamma’s “slim” tea

Well, today I’ve posted twice about food and/or drink, so I figured I’d wrap up the day with another post about my mom’s awesome slimming tea blend she makes when we both feel fat and/or bloated.   🙂

The rough recipe is:

  • nearly 1 gallon water with 2 to 4 dandelion tea bags 
  • 1 tablespoon cranberry concentrate
  • juice of one lemon
  • dash of stevia to taste 

 

Benefits:

Dandelion root detoxifies the liver, improves digestion and aids weight loss, and it contains calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, potassium, vitamins B and C. Cranberry is packed with vitamin C and antioxidants and it’s organic acids aid in weight loss. Lemon juice is a also a digestive aid and liver cleanser. Some folks swear by drinking a glass of warm lemon water every morning before breakfast. I’ve tried to do this but I always forget! 

This drink is very tart, but I grew to enjoy it. Hope you do too!

Tomorrow: THE RAMPS FESTIVAL!
