My Nutri Ninja has been a massive hit. Not only do I make breakfast smoothies which help massively with my hatred of weekday mornings, but I have perfected a few juices and cordials which are helping my current non-alcoholic ways- such as this lime, lemongrass and ginger cordial.
A few weeks ago I bought one of those dine in for £10 deals from M&S. Because I’m not drinking I had the lime and lemongrass presse. It was very good, but it could make quite a dent on my wallet if I bought it on a regular basis. So I decided to give something similar a go at home.
It would be easy to make more of this at once- just multiply the ingredients and maybe add less water as your mixer gets full. The supermarket limes here are a bit small at the moment. If you live near a good market or in warmer climes than Manchester then snap up a bag full and get juicing. Lemongrass Spice Drops are great because there are no woody bits, but if you can’t wait to get a bottle online, mince your lemongrass very finely with a grater before adding it to the mixer.
I only use a bit of sugar as I like it tart – you can add more to taste. As I want to keep it quite healthy I will be experimenting with adding leaves from my new stevia plant when it is a bit bigger.
I think this would also be great frozen in ice cube trays if you are making lots and plopped out into glasses of water or even in a G&T or white wine and soda in the summer. It really is very refreshing. One quantity made enough for four large glasses for me.
