Flavored Waters, Homemade Juices, Smoothies and Milkshakes!

Fruits, Vegetables and Herbs infused in Waters can be a great Detox Drink to cleanse the body. Homemade Smoothies are a great mid meal or meal replacement drink. You can add Powdered Protein to any of the Smoothies or Milk Shakes. I've been researching them and here are my favorites.




Lemon, Kiwi and Strawberry Water:

1 Lemon, thinly sliced.

3 Sprigs of Fresh Rosemary
15 Strawberries, Halved,
Ice Cold Water
