Liver Cleansing Drink

Combine the following in 8 oz of hot water (boiled water cooled down to a drinkable temp):

  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1/8 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp ground rosemary

This mix is excellent for the liver and overall health (including cold and flu prevention)! I use fresh lime juice when I have it, but this organic lime juice I picked up at the health store the other day is great to have around, especially if you want to have this drink on a regular basis. It’s not easy to find rosemary powder so I just grind up organic whole dried rosemary in a spice grinder. For the turmeric, you can use dried or liquid.  For the honey, any good quality version is great. I splurged on Manuka recently, but usually I use a local raw honey. For the apple cider vinegar, you definitely want to make sure it’s a raw and unfiltered one.  For the cayenne powder, I use an organic brand, but if you don’t have organic on hand then that’s fine.  I honestly think it tastes pretty good and better than I expected!
