This recipe is perfect for those craving a tummy-settling ginger ale…
One without sugar. Or ale.
Tongue, meet stevia. Mmmm. Sweet, refreshing success. Stevia is great because it doesn’t spike your blood sugar and send you into some foggy-headed, sugary abyss. Plus it has no calories, and contains no sugar. So far, so good.
Ginger is nice and soothing for an upset stomach.
And on those two notes we bring you...
(sugar-free, everything else-free)
A few sprigs of mint
A thumb of grated ginger (I usually just grate and freeze little bits of it)
Juice of one lime
A few drops of stevia, to taste
Like you’re making a mojito, muddle the mint, ginger, lime, and stevia. Squish ‘em up real nice. Pour in your sparkling water, and let it soak up the flavours. Stir. Strain into a glass with a few ice cubes, and slurp up the refreshment!
