I took a gorgeous chilly walk around the lake today with a new friend and we discussed how difficult juicing can be during the Winter. Fresh veggie juice, as much as I love it, chills me to the core and can be very difficult to look forward to if I’m not in a very warm place (like a sauna, my favorite juice drinking spot 😉 ). The series of tea-wheatgrass shots I’ve created are wonderful for having something warm after your juice, replacing your juice entirely if you’re desperate, OR jumping back onto the juicing bandwagon. I find them to be a nice break when I’m really not in the mood to clean my juicer or I’m having an off day. It’s extremely rare that I skip a day of juicing entirely but its nice to know I have this option. My very favorite holiday tea is Celestial Seasonings Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride (I’m drinking a mug right now!), I get so excited when they bring these out! Here’s to staying warm and healthy this Winter…
1 cup water
1 bag Celestial Seasonings Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride herbal tea
1 dropperful NuNaturals liquid stevia (the vanilla is also yummy if you have it)
juice of half a lemon
1 frozen wheatgrass cube
Heat the water, pour into a mug, and let steep in the fridge with the teabag until its just warm enough to melt the wheatgrass but not damage it. Add remaining ingredients and stir.
