Don’t Like Water? Try This Instead Of Soda!

lime aideDr J’s Lime Aid Drink:

  1. 1 organic lime
  2. 1 bottle of pure stevia (Now makes a great stevia)
  3. Vitamin C Powder (Swansons)
  4. water

In a Quart Glass bottle squeeze the juice of 1/3 of the lime and toss in the remaining skin and pulp.  Now add 2 – 3 grams of vitamin C powder.  Next add 1/4 of a “baby teaspoon” of the stevia powder as it is very sweet.  I use a baby teaspoon because a teaspoon is too big for stevia.  If you don’t have a baby teaspoon then use about 1/16 of a standard teaspoon to start with.  Fill the remaining bottle with filtered tap water and shake thoroughly.   Adjust to your taste by adding more stevia or vitamin C.

Health Benefits:  This is a wonderfully refreshing drink for all year round.  It is a very powerful antioxidant, it reduces inflammation, and it helps prevent cataracts as well as reducing glaucoma risk.  It also reduces your risk of colds and infections.

Storing:  If you will keep this more than a day,  you may want to remove the lime skin as it will become bitter if stored more than a day.  Otherwise it should be fresh tasting for several days; however, I go through a quart at least daily.

Enjoy,  Dr J.
