    Mango Ginger Water- 0 calories

    An after New years Detox drink :)

    Did you know Ginger and Mango both boost your metabolism? Along with boosting your metabolism ginger also is a natural pain reliever, from migraines to menstrual cramps ginger 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 today and enjoy.

    I have made this in a 2 liter pitcher, in a giant sun tea container and in a cleaned out venti Starbucks cup. This recipe is for the largest, the 4 liter sun tea pitcher. If you want to do a smaller pitcher cut the recipe in half, in a small cup use just one very thin slice of ginger and 1/8 cup mango.

    You 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.

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

    1 Ginger Root

    1 cup Frozen Mango- fresh is fine too

    To peel the ginger use the back of a spoon or a veggie peeler, just peel the part that you will be using, not the whole thing. Using a sharp knife slice 3-4 quarter sized slices. You want them about the size and thickness of the coin. Drop into your pitcher and add in the mango.
    Now top with 3 cups of ice and then top off with water. Place in your fridge for 1-3 hours before serving, drop in a couple frozen mango chunks in a pretty glass for ice cubes when serving, if you used fresh mango chop some up into ice cube sized chunks and toss in freezer when you put the water in the fridge.
