As the title implies, to drink this blend you have to have strong tenacity because it involves making your own garlic tea. Although garlic may not be your first go to for a detox, the health properties of garlic may persuade you differently. Garlic has been known to treat respiratory issues, parasites, promote healthy digestion and remedy digestive problems, combat diabetes, and relieve hypertension and fatigue. Even if you don’t have this blend very often, once in awhile is enough to aid in cleansing your body and help you stay mindful about balanced wellness.
Makes 3-4 glasses // Prep Time: 10 minutes // Active Time: 5 minutes
- 3 cups filtered water
- 2 fresh whole garlic cloves, halved
- 1 rounded tsp loose leaf or 1 sachet/bag lemongrass tea
- 1/4 - 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 - 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup or agave nectar
In a small saucepan, bring 2 cups of the water and the garlic cloves to a boil. Remove from heat as soon as the mixture comes to a boil and remove (strain) the garlic.
While the garlic is coming to a boil, heat the remaining 1 cup of water to 212°F and steep lemongrass tea for 4-5 minutes.
Once your garlic "tea" and lemongrass tea are ready, combine them in a large pitcher. Add in the lemon juice and sweetener to taste. Serve warm in 1/2 cup servings and enjoy up to 3 times a day. You can store the rest in the refrigerator to enjoy the next day as well!
