Wholesome Drinks : Blueberries, Watermelon, & Aloe
Here’s Super Food Drink, to Cleanse, Refresh, Detoxify
Since blueberries are in season, and can almost always be found frozen, I added them to this flavorful, refreshing, cleansing, drink. Among other benefits, blueberries are full of free radical fighting, antioxidants like resveratrol. Don’t have blueberries, no worries, the first time I made this drink, I used raspberries and strawberries instead. Be mindful of aloe, since its a natural gut stimulant, I drank about 8 ounces a day, mostly in the earlier time of the day. Be sure to make enough to keep yourself and loved ones feeling cleansed, refreshed, and flowing.
