Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
1 tablespoon Natural Calm Raspberry-Lemon or Cherry flavour
½ cup hot water
1½ cups cold water
2 cups coconut water
¼ cup brine (see note below)
1 peach, pitted and sliced
¼ cup fresh blueberries (optional)
Place Natural Calm powder in a glass or mug, add hot water. Let it fizz, then stir until dissolved. Mix with cold water, coconut water, brine, fresh fruit, and serve over ice.
Note: Brine can come from the juice of homemade or store-bought sauerkraut. You can also use kombucha, which is widely available in the beverage section of natural health stores and even chains like Fortino’s.
