Ginger-Lemon-Blueberry Shots

It's summer. And it's hot. And you may not be thinking about warming ginger root as much. I know I wasn't until this week I came down with a little sniffle in the nose and immediately I drove myself to my local health food store and bought myself a giant ginger claw. It is my fall back immunity booster. It's a root, a super food, and if you make and drink this shot you will know exactly the energy and awakening it can bring. 
You may not have a cold sniffle in the middle of summer like me, but you may deal with allergies and    heartburn or other heat producing health issues. Then this is a tonic for you too. It is a bite to swallow this tonic, but what shot of whatever isn't... amiright?!? It will make you feel fabulous though and if you own a high powered blender you need to start making this a part of your daily/weekly routine. It's pretty simple, but I wanted to share it anyways because it is a super easy and fun way to bring a shot of health and wellness and love to your body.  CHEERS!

Ginger-Lemon-Blueberry Shot Recipe
{gluten, dairy, egg, soy, sugar, nut and seed-free}

1 cup of frozen blueberries
1 large claw of ginger pealed and roughly chopped
1 large organic lemon sliced to remove seeds but keep the peel on 
2 cups of pure water

Put all the above ingredients in a high powered blender (I have a Vitamix ;)  and start on lower power to get it all blended and then put it on full-force-power and blend it for another 20-30 seconds. Then it's done, pour it into 4 8ounce glasses and serve it up to your family and friends. Drink up! It may be a bite or you may need to plug your nose to get it down.... and it may be an aquired taste...but if you get it down, you will start to feel amazing within minutes as it surges through your bloodstream.

SIDENOTE: I think this would make a base for an amazing summer lemonade just would need to add some simple syrup sweeteneer or even stevia and a ton of water and ice and place ina pitcher for serving with maying some lemon slices or fresh blueberries.... doesn't that sound lovely!

Hope you give it a try :) Hope you are finding hope and healing :) and hope you know you are loved and worth all the effort and time you spend on yourself and your whlole body-mind-soul.

Much love as always  xoxo
