Ginger Apple Detox Cocktail (21 Day Sugar Detox Friendly)

For the past few days, I've been doing the 21 Day Sugar Detox, kind of as a prep for doing The Ultimate Reset again in July (my hubby and I lost 47 pounds on our first Reset in March!).  For those who don't know, the 21DSD is basically an eating plan that involves eliminating sugars and sweeteners, real or artificial, for 21 days.  So no sweet foods!  It is meant to get your body at a place where it does not crave sugar, and is eating whole, nutrient-dense foods.  Nothing processed!  I am on Level 2, so there are no grains or legumes allowed - nothing starchy really, except for green-tipped bananas.  It's been a challenge but also very doable for me, since I was eating about 80/20 Primal beforehand.  I am in my first week, so my tummy is feeling kind of funky, and I am feeling a tad stressed.  Both are very normal reactions, and will improve over the 21 days.  So this evening, I was looking for something sweet.  Knowing I would not be finding that in the 21DSD, I decided to experiment with some fun-looking "detox drinks", and I came up with this recipe.

Ginger has been shown to speed up metabolism and help detox the body, and lemon is a diuretic that also helps eliminate toxins.  Cinnamon and green apple help to stabilize glucose and insulin levels and promote weight loss, so drink up!

Ginger Apple Fizzy Detox Cocktail

Ingredients:
(makes several servings)

juice of 1 lemon
1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger (or cut into chunks if you are using your Ninja)
1/4 of a large green apple
a few shakes of cinnamon to taste
1-2 packets of stevia (if you are NOT on the 21DSD)
carbonated water

Peel apple, cut into chunks, and place in blender with ginger, lemon juice, and cinnamon.  Blend well, until you have a thin, pulpy liquid.  (You may add a little water if necessary to get it blended.)  Put a couple spoonfuls of the mixture in a glass with carbonated water, stir with a spoon, and then pour through a fine strainer, pressing the mixture through with your spoon, into a fresh glass with ice if you wish.  You may adjust the taste by adding more soda or mixture.  Store the remaining mixture in an airtight container in the fridge.
