Ginger Mint Lemonade
Ginger, lemon and mint are all excellent for gastrointestinal health.
Ginger is also an antioxidant. Lemon is another great antioxidant full of phytonutrients and is wonderful as a full body cleanser. Mint is full of vit c and a and makes a good stomach and nerve relaxer.
So make a big pitcher of this lemonade and drink up to your health!
1 1/2c ginger juice
1/2c fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2c organic cane sugar or agave to taste

To make ginger juice:
Blend up about 2, 4 inch thumb sized pieces of ginger with 2c of water. The amount I used is in the picture above. Then strain through a sieve or cheese cloth.
To make lemonade:
Mix all ingredients together except mint. When ready to serve, muddle mint into lemonade and mix.
Serve over ice and enjoy!
