Do the long hot summer days have you craving something light and refreshing to sip on? It’s so rewarding to conjure up a beautiful elixir during this time of the year. Especially when the elixir helps you just feel great. all around!
I’ve rounded up 4 of my favorite elixir recipes for you to try the next time you’re looking to give yourself and your digestion some extra love and support!
For the Love of Lemons!
Lemons are loaded with amazing qualities. It’s a no-brainer why I’ve included them in every single one of my summer elixir recipes below. Using fresh lemon juice is the key to give our body the boost it needs to detox, de-bloat, and digest!
These yellow gems also provide us with a great deal of Vitamin C, helping us abate inflammation and various forms of aging in the body. You can see why I can’t get enough of this fruit. They are just an amazing gift for us!!
Lemon Raspberry Digestive Elixir Recipe
My Lemon Raspberry Digestive Elixir Recipe boosts your overall wellness by starting from the inside out! It’s naturally bright and beautiful, which speaks to its abilities to brighten and beautify you as well!
Raspberries will keep you feeling fresh. This fruit’s supply of dietary fiber helps to aid in the cleansing process and assist the digestive system. They have high amounts of vitamin C, riboflavin, folate, manganese, magnesium, potassium and copper. These berries are filled with micronutrients that work to boost overall wellness and beauty!
And one more thing… I recommend enjoying this elixir recipe before getting some sunshine. Because raspberries will bless you with a wonderful sun protection factor. Granted I am not saying to skimp on chemical-free sunscreen. Just remember these berries are one of mother nature’s ways of taking care of our largest organ — our skin!
De-Bloating Digestive Distress Elixir Recipe
When we keep our insides clean, our beauty and radiance can shine on the outside! I created my De-Bloating Digestive Distress Elixir Recipe purely for this reason.
The powerhouse combination of grapefruit and chia seeds boosts digestion and de-stresses the gut. Grapefruits are extremely hydrating, being the perfect partner to chia seeds. When mixed with liquid these seeds swell up to 15x their size. Being a combination of soluble and insoluble fiber you can envision chia seeds as little cleansing balls working through your intestines. Together, grapefruit and chia seeds assist in regulating digestion.
One brand I like is chia seeds from The Chia Co. They grow them in Western Australia where they produce chia seeds loaded with beauty minerals and nutrients!
Purple Power Detox Tonic Recipe
My Purple Power Detox Tonic Recipe helps brighten skin, fight harmful organisms, and assist in losing and/or maintaining a healthy weight. It’s loaded with fruits like blueberries and acai. Both berries are powerful detoxifiers in the human body.
Acai and blueberries are super high in antioxidants. Both are filled with fiber (our favorite natural cleanser) and loaded with minerals. Even more awesome, they are naturally sugar-free! Now can you see where this tonic gets its power? :)
We can help alleviate constipation and digestive problems by keeping our colons free from harmful substances. By making my Purple Power Detox Tonic Recipe, you will be preventing foods from fermenting inside your intestines. Further helping combat bloating, gas and constipation.
Purchase acai packets in the frozen fruit section. My favorite is the Sambazon Unsweetened Acai Smoothie Packets, which is made from delicious, organic acai, wild-harvested from the heart of the Amazon!
3 Minute De-Bloating Turmeric Lemonade Elixir Recipe
My 3 Minute De-Bloating Turmeric Lemonade Elixir Recipe is so beautiful and bright, you’re going to find yourself craving it simply for its brilliance! The highly prized ingredient turmeric is loaded with amazing health benefits. Its anti-inflammatory properties are soothing and rebalancing for the whole body.
Since this is loaded with turmeric and ginger, you may feel some heat when indulging in this elixir. Just remember this…ginger and turmeric help increase circulation in the body. Therefore they have an amazing ability to boost better blood flow, which truly helps the skin glow!
So there you have it Beauties! I hope you enjoy my Summer Elixir Recipe Roundup and you try one of these out very soon.
