I just started on this smoothie drink yesterday. We'll see hoe it goes, but I'm not too thrilled about the consistency of it...very very thick...very slow drinking, but the Pomegranate is to be good for us and usually more expensive than regular drinks.

This recipe was designed as a cleansing tea to stimulate processing of excess fats in the body, rev up circulation, and provide essential antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals —a perfect blend of nutrients. It's a great aid in undoing the effects of holiday over-indulgence, and Annie says she was given the same tea by a helpful friend after she was exposed to toxic chemicals. But it tastes so good, you'll want to come back for seconds: We had a crock-pot filled with it for a recent women's workshop and it was gone in no time!
SIMPLE SOLUTION: This is a great recipe that really gets around, and it's so easy to prepare.
INGREDIENTS Enough freshly-boiled water to fill your teacup or mug 1 tablespoon real maple syrup Freshly-squeezed juice of half a lemon Cayenne pepper to taste
Simply stir ingredients together in your mug or cup. Be careful with the cayenne: A little goes a long way.
HELPFUL HINTS: We've recently learned that this recipe was originally formulated by Stanley Burroughs, creator of the Master Cleanser Diet. It's such a great recipe that it crops up everywhere; I first received it from a friend.
Perfectly Protein ~ Vanilla Chai Tea December 28, 2007 10:47 AM
I drank the Bolthouse Vanilla Chai Tea when I was at work, it was great for energy boosting. I would recommend this for sure. It came in a low fat formula so I didn't feel bad about drinking the whole bottle. Some of the other girls started drinking it too. We worked graveyard and it's hard to stay awake in the wee hours. They all loved it.

My wife and I have both been using this tea in the spring and then again in the fall as a natural suppliment. It does strike a rather good claim, it is an Indian recipe from way back.
My mom drinks this everyday (she is 81). A while back, she had a slow blood leak in her intestine. She was getting a transfusion every other month to put blood back in her. So, I sent for some of this tea for her and she's doing great, and no bleeding. Now then, we can look it as, maybe it stopped on it's own, maybe the tea helped.
We get the loose tea and brew our own, but they also have it bottled, which costs more than the loose. Anyway, check it out; www.remedies.net
