Instead of reaching for another cup of coffee, try this warm green tea for a more gentle restorative effect than a jolt of frenetic energy. Lose the shakes and embrace a more steady refreshment.
Green tea gives you energy and helps to relax you at the same time. So when you are feeling that mid-afternoon dip, make this delicious brew that will not only rejuvenate your spirits but will feed your body anti-oxidants, vitamin C, and give you warmth on a cold winter’s day.
1 bag of green tea
1-inch knob of ginger
Juice of half a lemon
1 scoop of Sparkle Collagen with Verisol
Boil the green tea with fresh ginger for 10 minutes. If you like yours especially zingy, use more ginger. Take the tea bag and ginger out, and then add a scoop of Sparkle Collagen. Let it cool for 10-15 minutes, and then add the lemon juice.
Tip: Never put lemon juice in hot boiling water because it’ll kill the vitamins and minerals that are so great. A good test is to take a sip of your tea — if it doesn’t burn your tongue, it should be fine to add the lemon juice.
