One of my favorites! Actually I think last night I may have had one too many. They taste so good, you forget what it is. And you get all the calcium you need for the day. What a drink! This is supposed to be made with half and half, but its too heavy for me, so I use low-fat milk. Ingredient amounts can be adjusted to personal preference.
A great juice for the cold season. Ginger, and parsley supplies zinc for is antiviral activity. Pineapple contains bromelain,which is an effective anti-inflammatory agent for sore throats. The juice is also loaded with beta-carotene and vitamin C. Try to use organic produce.
I drink this all the time whenever I don't make a pitcherful. Sometimes it's only me drinking tea and I don't need a lot, so this is fast and perfect. You can sweeten yours however you like- I don't. I also like this much lemon, but you can use a little less if you like a milder lemon taste. I use Luzianne (black) tea, but sometimes I mix one of the tea bags up with an herbal, flavored tea, like blackberry.
Creamy and soothing with just a hint of cinnamon. Check it out and you will find that it is actually healthy for you. Another great Andrew Weil,MD recipe.(UPDATE-2006) It has been pointed out that this recipe does not live up to its name. I posted it as it was printed and although it does not meet low carb standards, it is a very delicious drink.
This smoothie was on the menu at Ruby Tuesdays when I bartended there. It was very popular! The measurements may not be exactly as theirs, but this is the way I remember making it. They are so good and very healthy!
A friend of mine told me this was the actual recipe used by Starbucks. I do not believe him, but it does taste surprisingly similar. I have quadrupled the recipe as I like to make it in advance and keep it in the fridge to surprise guests. Note: If you make it in advance, do not store it any longer than you would milk.
