When it’s hot outside, reaching for a refreshing drink can really help cool us down. Instead of grabbing an icy soda, try this yummy drink instead.
3c filtered water
¼c lime juice (squeeze the juice from 2-3 limes instead of buying prepackaged junk)
1 tbsp coconut sugar (dissolved it in 1 tbsp hot water first, then add to the rest of the water)
¼ tsp cardamom powder (you can buy this already in powder form or grind your own cardamom pods, including seeds and husks, after lightly toasting)
Mix all of the ingredients together in a small pitcher, then serve in two glasses with 2 ice cubes *max* to cool it down. The key is to avoid adding too much ice. This yummy drink cools your body down while keeping your digestion happy.
