Recipe: Metabolism-Boosting Iced Ginger Green Tea
from Dr. Oz
Iced Ginger-Green Tea
Both green tea and ginger have fat-blasting properties. The green tea contains nutrients that help block fat absorption. And both the tea and ginger help raise metabolism and help your body utilize carbs more efficiently.
12 quarter-inch slices of fresh ginger
4 tbsp loose green tea or 12 bags
3 cups water
1 lemon, sliced
Bring the water to a boil. Turn off the heat and let the tea and ginger soak in the boiling water for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags or leaves and pour the concentrated tea into a jug. Fill the rest of the jug with cool water. Put the tea in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours to chill. Serve over ice in glasses with fresh mint springs and lemon slices.
