Tuesday Twister time—Better late than never!
WATER KEFIR –BLUEBERRY POMEGRANATE FLAVOR
I finally made water kefir again. We liked this one much better than the last (pineapple flavor). I flavored this one with some blueberry, pomegranate juice. Very tasty and my body has finally gotten used to this stuff. Next I want to make a ginger flavored kefir using fresh ginger.
I love the way these bottles look, but I need to get a better funnel, it takes me forever to fill them up. I got them at IKEA for a couple of dollars.
APPLE GINGER LEMON DRINK
This next drink is typically made in a juicer. I don’t have a juicer yet, so I used my Vitamix. There was only a little pulp so I think it worked fine in the Vitamix and will continue to play around with this idea.
Also generally I would make this drink in the summer months, it is too cooling for a winter drink. Maybe it would make a niced mulled cider though?
You can see the “pulp” on the glass. I just mixed it up before drinking and it was fine.

I didn’t use an exact recipe for the Apple-ginger-lemon Drink:
3-4 medium apples, peeled if using a vitamix or blender, unpeeled if using a juicer
juice from 1/2 – 1 lemon (meyers lemons work well)
1-2 tsp fresh grated ginger
Puree until completely blended and pureed. Serve.
