New York City is in the midst of a heat wave so we are reaching for flowery hibiscus to cool us off. We might be melting in the city streets, but an icy Fresca is an antioxidant-loaded treat we can enjoy every day on the 21-Day Clean Program and during maintenance.
It’s true, healthy alcoholic drinks do exist and we are here to give you the information you need to celebrate and stay balanced this holiday. We eliminate alcohol on the Clean Program (even in the form of healthy alcoholic drinks) and we recommend only having alcohol sparingly after your cleanse, but that doesn’t mean you must avoid it all together. Life is about balance and the key to enjoying a healthy alcoholic drink is using the right type of alcohol and mixer, like this cranberry rosemary cocktail.
Our healthy hot chocolate is a fresh take on a seasonal favorite that will help you cozy up this winter without serving your friends and family processed cocoa with an unhealthy amount of added sugar. Healthy hot chocolate differs from the conventional version because it uses real antioxidant-rich chocolate as its base rather than traditional processed mixes that contain added sugars.
Golden milk is all the rage this season. This delicious warming drink-of-the-moment has been making its way into the clean eating scene. But what is golden milk?

Are you looking to boost your immunity? Try this medicinal mushroom tea in place of your daily cup of coffee. Medicinal mushroom tea has many benefits such as balancing our immune systems to help our bodies handle everyday stress.
Coffee can be dehydrating and taxing on the detox organs, and is inlcuded in our Big Three of dietary addictive substances. By replacing your java with a medicinal mushroom elixer, you are flooding your system with immunity-activinating Beta-Glucans. The bitter taste of medicinal mushrooms increases with their potency, making them the perfect coffee alternative.
What is better than a beautiful summer drink? How about a beautiful summer drink with healing ingredients. This lemonade uses a base of holy basil tea, also known as tulsi, which is highly regarded in Ayurvedic medicine. Holy basil is known to aid in the treatment of anxiety, adrenal fatigue, and hypothyroidism. During and after the Clean Program, sip on this treat and share it with those you love.
Eating clean doesn’t mean we have to give up our fancy cocktails. This blackberry-thyme italian soda recipe is an antioxidant packed substitute for those sweet alcoholic drinks. It’s also a great excuse to add fresh fruit and herbs into our day. Stopping by the local farmer’s market to stock up on fresh locally grown ingredients, is a great way to get nutritious ingredients, for this simple, yet refreshingly delicious italian soda.
Two of nature's most incredible anti-inflammatory foods, turmeric and ginger, are combined in this delicious end-of-summer cooler. It's super refreshing with ice or without ice it's also a great base for your cleansing shakes in cooler months. Cheers to your health!

It's a highly cleansing beverage that is a perfect complement to the 21-Day Clean Program.
