LITHE HIBISCUS SANGRIA! 19 Apr 2013

Senorita

It's back for spring and summer!  The whole world drinks Hibiscus tea and I fell in love with it the first time I had Aqua de Jamaica on Lithe Escape. We’ve added seasonal, cold-pressed orange, lime and ginger (and cubed apples and oranges for authenticity and sweetness!) all while keeping it under 100 calories

Drink as a mock-tail or add red wine to this healthy mixer. Hibiscus is not only beautiful and delicious but it has numerous health benefits:  

  • It lowers blood pressure, LDL cholesterol levels and your risk of heart disease.
  • it’s rich in antioxidants (such as vitamin C) that protect us from cancer.
  • It’s high in electrolytes (perfect post-Lithe)
  • It gets things moving:  it’s a diuretic and a mild laxative
  • When you consume hibiscus tea after the meal, it assists in breaking down starch and sugar.
  • Drink post-Lithe:  It has a cooling effect and acts as a natural body refrigerant.
