If you’ve followed along on Instagram Stories for long, you know that I have did a 45 DAY cleanse under the recommendation of my chiropractor, Dr. John at Archetype Health. I shared a lot of his natural guru, health and wellness knowledge in THIS blog post where he taught us ALL a lot about intermittent fasting.
As part of that 45 day cleanse, I wasn’t allowed to drink coffee. Yep, you read that right… No coffee for 45 days. As you can imagine, for someone like me who truly loves coffee and as someone who is NOT a morning person, this was a little bit of a shock to my system. I’ve shared with y’all my love for coffee HERE where I dive into how I drink my coffee WHILE intermittent fasting! As much as I love coffee, I have wanted to have an alternative option.
One of my all time favorites from Starbucks that is not listed on their menu is the Starbucks Medicine Ball. I was so thrilled when my friend Katie shared with me she figured out a Homemade Starbucks Medicine Ball Tea. If you are tuning out because you don’t like hot drinks, hang tight because you can also make this recipe iced!
Now, if you’re not familiar with teas, they come at varying levels of caffeine. FUN FACT: Green tea typically has the same amount of caffeine as a decaf coffee. Yes, you read that right. Decaf coffee actually does still have caffeine in it. That blew my mind when I found it out.
This recipe includes Tazo’s orange and mint tea bags.The teas in this recipe have a pretty low caffeine content so this is a great recipe to test out day or night. This recipe is especially great when you are sick because the combination of the honey, these two teas, and the lemon juice have proven to be really soothing for my throat when I am sick with allergies or a sinus infection.
One of my favorite all natural health supplements to have on hand is Manuka honey. When I have it on hand, I always try to utilize it in my Homemade Medicine Ball Tea.
Benefits Of Manuka Honey:
- Improves your oral health
- Helps treat wounds
- Soothes a sore throat
- Treats ulcers and acne
