A Refreshing Tropical Cooler

A Refreshing Tropical Cooler

 

I've just arrived in India, and one of my favorite things about visiting Asia is eating all the tropical fruits! Papayas, mangoes, lychees, coconuts, jackfruit... you name it! I love experimenting with tea recipes, so in this post, I'm sharing a refreshing tropical cooler that's perfect for this time of year! You can find all these fruits, plus many new kinds of exotic fruits at Asian markets (I like Mekong Supermarket), so you can still get your hands on these fruits if you don't find them at your local supermarket. 

 

You will need: 

  • 2 young coconuts 
  • 2 tbsp Happy Place (leaves)  
  • 1/2 cup fresh mango, cubed (you can use frozen as well) 
  • 5-6 lychees, peeled and seeded  
  • Mint Leaves (optional) 

 

To make this, crack open both coconuts and pour the coconut water into a diffuser or pitcher for cold-brewing. Next, add the Happy Place leaves to the coconut water and cold brew the tea according to the instructions. You can even cold brew it in the fridge. 

 

 

When the tea has steeped, strain the leaves and add all the fruit. You can experiment with different fruits as well! Allow the fruit to infuse for at least one hour (longer is better), chill, and serve. Enjoy!

The connection between inflammation and your diet
Is Your "Healthy" Diet Slowly Killing You? The Connection Between Inflammation And The Food You Eat

October 10, 2020

A few years ago, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. This meant that if I wanted to live an energetic and healthy life without having to rely on medications, I had to figure that how to manage inflammation naturally. Because I have a strong background in natural healing using plants and foods, I felt like this was doable. But in order to take my health seriously, I had to make some changes in my diet and lifestyle.
