Citrus Ginger Tea

Submitted by: NANNER2121

Introduction

A warming drink with thermogenic properties. A warming drink with thermogenic properties.
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    One lime, small lemon and small orange, juiced
    Fresh ginger root - grated
    Boiling water
    no-cal sweetener

Directions

Roll the citrus on the counter to soften, cut in half and ream out juice ( a little pulp is ok)

Grate the fresh ginger root: I like to use a microplane.

Divide citrus juice, pulp and ginger into two large mugs.

Fill mugs with boiling water and allow to steep.
Add sweetener to taste preference.

Increase or decrease the amounts of citrus and ginger according to individual taste. I find I use more ginger in the cooler temps to warm me up.

Ginger tea is very low in calories and the thermogenic properties can enhance weight loss. You can also make this ahead and refrigerate for a refreshing cold drink.

Number of Servings: 2
