Green tea with lemon and coconut oil

Start your day with a warming tea that is satisfying, calming, alkalising and filling. An all natural drink that will help support your wellbeing, kick start your metabolism for the day and support the detox systems within your body. Not such an unusual flavour combination once you taste it and the inclusion of the coconut oil helps you to feel energised for hours. A great way to care and nourish your body at the start of a busy day.

Stir the drink gently with a spoon until the oil has melted. Sip slowly and enjoy. Once the drink is 2/3’s gone fill the mug with more hot water and enjoy another cup that will still be fragrant but not quite as strong.

This is a really soothing and lovely drink. You will need to be close to a toilet as it does go through your system quite quickly. It keeps me sustained for many hours so l can enjoy a late breakfast and focus on doing other things when the mornings are so busy. Drink this tea mindfully and think about the goodness that is going into your body and plan the day ahead of you.
