This refreshing, spicy version of lemonade can be made with lemon or lime segments. Both are complementary with ginger and sparkling water, and are ultra-refreshing.

Ginger is a mild anti-inflammatory and provides antioxidants that support the immune system. This drink also counters the damaging effect of dehydration, the most common cause of fatigue.

1 cup ice cubes, made with filtered water

1 teaspoon ginger powder

2 cups sparkling water

1 teaspoon xylitol

½ lemon or lime, peeled

Combine ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

Serves 2
