Lon and I haven’t been feeling great. Poor Lon has the flu and I have a mean cold. We started the week off with lots of gingerale but it’s a silly tradition for illness because there’s no ginger in it. The carbonation may help but we were still missing out on all the wonderful health benefits of ginger. I started thinking about how the standard commercial ginger ale didn’t taste all that great either, and that’s how the Strawberry Ginger Juice came about. It’s quite spicy from fresh ginger so cut down a bit if you don’t like it so strong and the agave sweetener is optional because it depends on how sweet your strawberries are.

Strawberry Ginger Juice
~1 serving

  • 9 oz hulled strawberries
  • 0.5 oz peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon agave sweetener (optional)

Instructions –

Put strawberries and ginger through a juicer, collecting juice in a small cup. Stir in lime juice and agave (if using). Drink and rest up.
