Hibiscus Lemonade

This hibiscus lemonade is just as gorgeous as it is delicious. It’s the perfect show-stopping beverage for your next gathering, and it’s also simple enough to enjoy anytime. Try freezing it into ice cubes and keeping them on hand to make a beautiful hibiscus-infused water on demand.

In Liver Rescue, I share how each of these ingredients can support you and your loved ones in healing. Let’s take a look…

Hibiscus: The unique anthocyanin compound that gives hibiscus its red coloring helps rejuvenate the liver, bringing it back to life by cleaning mucus off cell membrane walls and improving the liver’s ability to perform its responsibilities. This herb is also a gallbladder rejuvenator—it cleans off gallbladder walls—and improves the liver’s personalized immune system.

Lemons (and limes): Improve hydrochloric acid production as well as bile production and potency. Contain micro mineral salts that break down pathogens such as unproductive bacteria, mold, yeast, and fungus to help protect your liver’s immune system. The rich calcium levels in lemons and limes binds to the vitamin C within them, and both of these enter into the liver, where they waken a stagnant, sluggish, fatty liver, helping loosen and disperse fat cells. Lemons and limes clean up dirty blood syndrome, improve glucose absorption, and even protect the pancreas.

Raw honey: Contains a combination of sugar that the liver needs desperately and vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients— hundreds of which are not on the record with medical research and science. Honey is antimicrobial: antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, all packaged into one. When it heads to the liver in its brokendown, assimilated state, it packs a punch, giving the liver everything it needs at once: the liver’s immune system strengthens instantly. The liver lobules and cells get the fuel they need instantly. And hundreds of phytochemicals from the flowers that bees once harvested for pollen intoxicate the liver in a euphoric, healthy way, giving the liver the reprieve it needs to fight for us another day.

Hibiscus Lemonade

Ingredients:
4 cups water, divided
2 teaspoons dried hibiscus (see Tips)
½ cup fresh lemon juice
4 tablespoons raw honey (see Tips)

Directions:
Bring 1 cup of water to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove the water from the heat and add the dried hibiscus. Allow the resulting hibiscus tea to steep for at least 10 minutes, and then strain the tea into a mug and place it in the fridge to cool.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the remaining 3 cups of water with the lemon juice and honey until the honey has completely dissolved and a smooth lemonade has formed. When the hibiscus tea has cooled, stir it into the lemonade base and enjoy!

Tips:
* Store-bought tea bags can be used as well when loose dried hibiscus is not available. Use 1 hibiscus tea bag in place of 1 teaspoon of dried hibiscus.

* Alternatively, maple syrup can be used in place of honey. Start by using 3 tablespoons of maple syrup and adjust until the desired sweetness is reached.

* The recipe above is for a beautiful, light lemonade that anyone can enjoy. If you’re looking for even more medicinal benefits, try using up to 2 more tablespoons of dried hibiscus for a stronger hibiscus lemonade with a powerfully tart flavor.
