This sipper is amazing, and packs an awesome “punch”. My girls named it “Ninja Warrior” in honor of our good friend LJ. This sipper is great for warding off colds, flu and virus, but also, the optional ingredients help you focus and stay calm. I love making with the optional ingredients for my kids in the morning before school. Plus its a much healthier alternative to sugar filled gelatin drinks and has a nice berry flavor , or it can be and elegant drink for you girls get together. So Yummy!
For the Juice ( Makes a 2 qt. pitcher)
1 TBSP Elderberry syrup
1-2 TBSP Baobab Powder
Stevia or sweetener to taste
2 quarts of water
(Optional: You can add 1 serving of the “Focus Attention” powder from Natures Sunshine to each glass prior to serving and stir. The Elder berry blends nicely with the raspberry flavor of the Focus attention – this is the ninja warrior element)
This is the Elderberry Syrup we use. We chose this syrup because many of these syrups are filled with sugar but this one is not. However, it does have 2 carbs in it due to the natural sweetness of elderberries. Its also an organic syrup, which makes us feel good about not putting dded chemicals into our bodies.
Baobab powder is the dried flesh of the fruit from the Baobab tree. Its an incredible source of vitamins and minerals. Don’t be afraid! Its low carb, and tastes like citrus! We buy ours here, from Trim Healthy Mama! Its the best value for a stellar product.
For the Punch:
Make the juice above. Fill a quart sized jar with ice and pour 1/2 of the way full with Juice. Top with a lemon La Croix (or other flavor).
We like to add frozen berries to make it look fancy.
