Day Spa Mango Ginger Water

Mango Ginger Water

Try this delicious Mango Ginger Water recipe which boosts your metabolism, acts a natural pain reliever for migraines to menstrual cramps, and heals a lot of pain. It also helps reduce morning or motion sickness and banishes heart burn!

Mangos not only boost metabolism, they also aid in digestion, boost your memory and increases your sex drive! This one little drink will do a lot for your body, so make a big pitcher of Mango Ginger Water today and enjoy.

Makes 4 liters, refill 4 liter pitcher 2-4 times until flavor is lost.

Ingredients:

  • 1 inch Ginger Root, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup Frozen Mango- fresh is fine too

Get Started:

To peel the ginger use the back of a spoon or a vegetable peeler, just peel the part that you will be using. Using a sharp knife slice ginger into 3-4 coin sized slices. You want them about the size and thickness of the coin.

-Drop into your pitcher and add in the mango.

-Top with 3 cups of ice and then add with water.(the ice is important, it holds down the ginger and mango to help infuse the water)

-Place in your fridge for 1-3 hours before serving.

-When serving add a couple frozen mango chunks in a pretty glass for ice cubes.

Mango Ginger Water will keep in the fridge for 24 hours.

Mango Ginger WaterYou can use fresh or frozen mango, I like frozen because I don’t have to cut and it is always picked at the peak of the season and frozen so if I can’t get mangos in season I can still always have some in the house. Plus they are like little ice cubes here, fun! I highly recommend you use fresh ginger, the powdered just does not taste the same and will clump in your water. Check your farmer’s market or the produce section of your grocery store for ginger, you can store in freezer to make it last longer.

Hot Strawberry and Tangerine Metabolism Boosting Drink

Strawberry and Tangerine Fruit Infused Water

The weather outside may be COLD, but this Hot Strawberry and Tangerine Metabolism Boosting Drink will warm you up and help you lose weight! It contains fruits that are high in Vitamin C which are also big metabolism boosters!

One of my favorite combos are strawberries and tangerines, and this drink is delicious both hot and cold.

I recently came across dried strawberries, which means I can have this all year-long but if you can’t find them don’t fret, just slice fresh or frozen strawberries and plan on using a fine mesh sieve, coffee filter or tea bag as they might fall apart.

Makes 1 pot of tea or 1 liter of cold drink.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup dried or fresh sliced strawberries
  • Rind of one tangerine- try to get little to none of the white pith
  • Water

Get started:

There are two ways to make Hot Strawberry and this Tangerine Metabolism Boosting Drink: 1) Put it all in the tea-pot, 2) Make individual cups. It all depends on your willingness to wash your tea-pot. I have also included a cold version for this delicious drink.

Tea pot instructions- Place the tangerine rind and strawberries into a teapot, cover with water and bring to a boil. To serve cover the nose of your tea-pot with a coffee filter or use a fine mesh sieve over your tea-cup to avoid strawberry pulp.

Strawberry and Tangerine Metabolism Boosting DrinkIndividual tea cups- Boil water, add in 1/4 of the rind and a tablespoon of dried strawberries. Allow the strawberries to plump up and just as they start to fall apart (about 3 minutes) use a fork to scoop them out and discard. Leave the rind in the tea-cup for both added flavor and beauty.

Make it cold- Boil 3 cups (or as much as your tea-pot will hold) of water making the “tea pot instructions” let it cool with the fruit left in then strain into a 1 liter jug discarding the strawberries. Top with water until it is full, pluck out the tangerine rind, rinse and add to jug then place in the fridge to cool. Serve over ice and drink up. If you want to do a bigger jug just double the recipe.

Metabolism Boosting Apple Pie Tea

Hot Apple Cinnamon Water

With the days getting shorter and the nights colder, we’ve got a great hot fruit infused water recipe that will warm you up and tastes great too.

Now that the weather has turned cold I wanted to try a warm version of my favorite Apple Pie flavored drink and this was the perfect choice.

What you need:

(makes 2 liters)
  • 1 Fuji or other sweet apple thinly sliced
  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks (do not use powder it will not dissolve)

Get started:

You have two options, the tea pot or tea cup method.

For the tea pot method, pile all the ingredients into your tea pot, cover with water and bring  to a boil. Serve in a tea cup or travel mug with an extra cinnamon stick to stir with if desired.

For the tea cup method, place 1/4 of your apple slices and 1/2 a cinnamon stick to a tea cup or travel mug, pour boiling water over the cinnamon stick and apples and  let seep until cool enough to drink, 2-4 minutes. Refill tea cup with  hot water until the flavor is lost, at that time discard used fruit and  cinnamon and add another 1/4 cup of your apple slices and another 1/2 cinnamon stick.

This Apple Pie Tea recipe is part of the Metabolism Boosting chapter of our cookbook Fruit Infusion: A Collection of Day Spa Inspired, Fruit Infused Waters.  It’s a colorful cookbook full of metabolism boosting, fat burning drinks,  teas, sodas and ice cubes. With over 40 recipes to choose from you and  your taste buds will never be bored with water again!
