Whilst enjoying a cup of cinnamon green tea I thought it’ll be great to do a post on it alongside a few of my other favourite ‘detox’ teas. So I’ve picked my top 3 that I like to drink alternatively or every now and then. The great thing about these is that they are natural ingredients and come with lot of health benefits.
This is a great remedy for colds or those days when I’m stuck in bed and need something to soothe my throat or help with my blocked nose. With just a handful of fresh peppermint leaves and a dash of honey(optional) you get a real soothing effect. The other great thing about this is that it’s caffeine free so it can enjoyed by anyone at anytime of the day.
Simply 1/2 a lemon (squeezed) in hot water, this is great for boosting metabolism and helping with weight loss andd You’ve probably heard of this before but it really helps! I usually have a cup every morning but I do try to switch it up by having a slice of lemon with a glass of cold water or switching it to green tea.
(As you know too much of anything can be bad for you and in this case it’s the citric acid from the lemon that can be bad for the lining of your stomach) so moderation is key. Nevertheless, you can sip and enjoy all it’s health benefits at once. You can grate some fresh ginger for an extra kick, honey may be optional too.
Finally the drink that started it all !! my honey, cinnamon (rod) green tea. As much as I love plain green tea I couldn’t help but spice it up a bit, I LOVE cinnamon so I decided to mix the two together with honey and boii do they make a great combo. If you’ve never tried this before do! Cinnamon itself comes with a few health benefits so add for additional flavour.
*I prefer organic to normal green tea for many obvious reasons, it’s taste better and I think there is a significant difference in the taste, especially if it’s drunk on it’s own without any additional ingredients. More so it’s left in it’s natural state without any additives so you get the full benefit of what it has to offer so opt for organic!
You’ll thank me later 😉 haha
Finally and something I thought I’d share that works for me If you’re on a weight loss journey or on a diet (especially at this time of the year, bikini season and all) I find having any of these drinks above (with honey of course) in the morning will help fight off any sugar cravings for the rest of the day. so do bear that in mind…
