At a fair in 2007, I couldn’t find a single vendor with something raw (no suprise, really). A woman selling lemonade from a cart a few yards away caught my eye. I watched her squeeze (gasp) real lemons into a cup and add sugar and water. Since then, I had made my own honey-sweetened version with great success. Then I thought, why not try adding peppermint sun tea to it? Brilliant!
This recipe is really good and I drink it at least once a day. Most of my non-vegan/vegetarian friends fear this drink, though. That's where the smoothie recipe derives its name, "But it smells like GRASS!" If it is really GREEN, then you know it is GOOD for you!
I've been struggling for, well, EVER to find a "treat" that will satisfy my chocolate cravings that seem unabated despite doing "all the right things" in terms of foods to eat that should get rid of sweets cravings. I've even worked with both a naturopath and acupuncturist! Tonight, I hit on this tea that is so simple, I'm shocked I hadn't considered trying it before. It definitely helped curb my craving tonight, when the raw chocolate mousse I made from a recipe in the cafe Gratitude recipe book and the accompanying raspberry cashew cream topping was shouting my name from the fridge (I already ate enough today!). Let me know what you think!
