I haven't really talked about it, but I've been following Trim Healthy Mama, more or less, since September. I've not been a very good Mama for the last couple of months, but I'm rededicating myself. ~grin~ I've kept off the weight that I have lost, about fifty pounds. Now it's time to get the scale moving downward again. Serene and Pearl's Shrinker drink was a big help to me while I was losing. Here's a link to the original recipe. It includes the information about all the reasons it's so good for you and helps you lose weight.
I played around with the recipe a bit and found that this is my favorite way to make it. It tastes like a lovely iced Chai tea. You may drink it hot if you prefer. This recipe makes two quarts. That's the amount Serene and Pearl suggest as a day's allotment.
3-4 Oolong tea bags steeped in a large mug or small teapot until room temperature
Blend the following in a blender:
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
pinch of sea salt
1 teaspoon caramel extract (You can use vanilla.)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of cayenne
Stevia or Truvia to taste
This makes your Shrinker concentrate. Divide it between two quart jars. When you're ready to drink it, fill the jar with ice and sip on it until it's gone. You can add a little extra water or sweetener as needed. I like weak tea, so I just keep adding ice and sipping throughout the day. Stir or shake each time you drink, because the cinnamon tends to go to the bottom.
This is called Shrinker because it actually burns calories by raising your thermogenic temperature.
Have a wonderful week ladies!
Blessed to be a Blessing
