Fresh Ginger Vitamix Tea

This spicy & sweet tea is good any time, but especially when you’re feeling under the weather. Fantastic warm or cold.

  • 6 cups
  • 5 minutes
  • 8 minutes

Ingredients

Tea

  • 6 cups purified water
  • 1-1/2 tbsp fresh ginger; peeled and chopped
  • 2 medium lemons; juiced (~1/2 cup fresh lemon juice)
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup; grade B

Directions

  1. In the Vitamix, add the water & ginger. Blend from low to high for approximately 60 seconds. The water should turn yellow and the ginger should be pulverized. Any remaining chucks will be strained later.
  2. Add cinnamon & cayenne to the ginger mixture. Turn the Vitamix to the Soup setting and hit start.
  3. Once the liquid is hot and the Vitamix turns off, pour the mixture through a mesh strainer or cheese cloth to remove and remaining ginger pulp.
  4. Add the tea, lemon juice, & sweatener back into the Vitamix and give it a quick blend to mix the ingredients.
  5. Enjoy! Tweak to taste and serve warm. Leftovers can be kept in the refrigerator.
