Over the weekend I attended The Psychology of Eating conference with my graduating class. It was an amazing experience and I truly have been changed from meeting and learning from all those in attendence. During my many wonderful conversations the topic of soda came up multiple times. I shared with a few of my fellow coaches my favorite summer drink. A drink that really gives me the feeling of drinking a carbonated soda but with great digestive and other health benefits. For me it feels like drinking a sweet cinnamon soda, if there is such a thing. I was asked to post the recipe multiple times so I decided to do just that as I sit on my porch enjoying the sun and the beautiful weather.
My Cinnamon Master is based on the Master Cleanse Lemonade with a twist. It is very refreshing and in a strange way gives me a sense that I am drinking something carbonated.
Nice Glass with Ice
1 to 2 Tbsp Grade B Maple Syrup
2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Lemon, juiced
1/2 to 1 tsp Ceylon Cinnamon
2 c of Spring Water
Place all the ingredients into glass with ice. Now stir, shake and rock n roll. Then enjoy sipping it with some friends or relaxing alone.
