This recipe is from The New Soul Vegetarian Cookbook. My sister-in-law gave it to me. I make this drink whenever anyone has the slightest sign of a cold. The ginger BURNS! But your cold disappears. I am starting to make it daily now, with less ginger, since I noticed that an increase in my ginger intake has been clearing out my sinuses!
2 pieces fresh gingerroot
1 cup pineapple cubes
1 orange, (juiced)
1/2 cup ice
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1. Juice the ginger. Each piece is about 6 inches long. (Mine have been much smaller, more like 2 inches each); peeling is optional.
2. Combine all the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.
