Lazy Girls Good Girl Moonshine Concentrate- THM FP
Good Girl Moonshine (GGMS) is a health boosting drink created by Trim Healthy Mama authors which seems to have taken over Pinterest. It contains two health boosting ingredients- ginger and apple cider vinegar.
Often the ginger and ACV are paired with a natural sweetener of choice which takes the “bite” out of the ACV and the makes it into a perfectly sweet- tart refreshing drink for all day!
Well, I’m a lazy girl, I like my food and drink to be of the “grab and go” variety. I found recipes all over for GGMS but I was too lazy to get out all the ingredients for just one drink. So I made a concentrate which I’ve been using ever since!
1 bai tea (see note!)
1-2 tsp ginger powder (see note!)
1/4 c. Natural Apple Cider Vinegar (See note!)
Optional- squeeze half a lemon or a lime in there! For added citrus flavor and tang!
Put these all in a shake cup, or a quart jar. Shake it up. The sweetness of the tea is enough for me, but you may like a packet of truvia or so to sweeten it more)
To dilute your concentrate, pour ice into your cup, fill the bottom 1/4 with your concentrate and then fill the rest with water! You can adjust the ratio to suit your needs, a s written it makes 4 or 5 quarts of GGMS 👍🏻
Regarding the Bai tea- these teas are “on plan” as they are sweetened with stevia and erythritol. Change up the flavors as you like! My favorites are the blueberry one and the pomegranate!
Regarding the ginger powder, I have heard that many brands do not dissolve well. I use Watkins and feel that it dissolves just fine! Fresh ginger is often called for in GGMS recipes, but it’s just too much work for me, so I use powdered!
Regarding ACV, the natural ones are what you want. They say on them “with the mother” which is a sediment on the bottom of the bottle. Give the bottle a shake before you pour it. That’s where the highest content of nutritional value is so you want it in your drink! The mother, will settle in your concentrate. So give it a little shake before you dilute your drink.
