We start every day with a ginger shot. Every batch tastes different, but all are equally good.
- 1 quart (1 l) filtered water
- 4-5 oz (120-140 g) peeled and grated ginger
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 3 T honey
- Juice from 2 lemons
Heat the water (it shouldn’t boil). Add the ginger and cinnamon sticks and leave it in for approximately 30 minutes. Strain the water and discard the ginger and cinnamon sticks. Add the honey. When the liquid has cooled off, add the squeezed lemon before pouring it into a bottle (I use a glass bottle). Put it in the fridge, and enjoy your morning shots! It keeps for about a month in the fridge.
Green Smoothies: (serves 2 – you can literally use any fruits/veggies that you like, but this is how I make mine most of the time)
- A handful of spinach/kale
- 1 apple
- Juice from one squeezed lemon
- Ginger (about 1″/ 25mm)
- 1/4 cup (1/2dl) frozen pineapple
- 2 cups (475ml) of water
Put all the ingredients in the blender and enjoy!
Acai Bowl: (serves 2)
- 2/3 cup (1 1/2 dl) almond or coconut milk
- 2 T Acai powder
- 2 T Maca powder
- 2 T Hemp seeds
- 2 T Chia seeds
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/4 cup (1/2 dl) frozen mango
- 1/4 cup (1/2 dl) frozen blueberries
Pour the milk into the blender. Add the rest of the ingredients to the blender. Blend on high until it’s all well mixed. Voila!
On top of the açai bowls, I add homemade granola and coconut flakes. Occasionally I’ll add homemade hazelnut spread and fruit!
