Rosemary Mint Ginger Brightness
Boil some water and brew 1 glass of strong mint tea with 3 sprigs of fresh mint. Let it soak for 30 minutes and cool. Pour the mineral water into your water bottle, squeeze out 1 piece of ginger with a garlic press (watch out for splashing), remove the sprigs of mint from the tea and add this to the water bottle together with the maple syrup and sprig of rosemary. Shake and take with you.
Pour the mineral water into your water bottle. Squeeze the oranges, lime and lemon and pour into the bottle. It is better to eat the fibres, otherwise your water bottle will become clogged or you will choke on the fibres. Add 1 tablespoon of honey and the pinch of cayenne pepper and losalt. Shake well and take with you!
Coco Cranberry cardamom delight
Spoon the skyr into a drinking cup, add the organic coconut water, cranberry juice, roosvicee ferro, grated coconut and cardamom. Shake well and you’re done! Keep the drink cool.
