Recipe: Spicy Pomegranate and Coconut Tonic


  • ⅓ cup pomegranate seeds, crushed
  • ½ fresh jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  • ⅛ cup ginger slices
  • ⅓ to ½ lemon, sliced
  • ⅛ cup fresh oregano and mint leaves
  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut water


Add all ingredients into your glass jar and let it steep in the fridge for 1 hour. Set your timer for an hour, or at most, 75 minutes. After the timer goes off, strain it all out into another container and either serve it or place back in the fridge to consume at a later time. Be sure to keep it either in a mason jar with a tight lid or any other glass container that is airtight. You can keep it in the fridge for up to a week.
