Lemongrass Drink II

This is how you make this delicious and nutritious beverage. Just put finely chopped lemongrass leaves and stalks put into the mixer to make concentrated juice.

Strain it through cheesecloth into a pot. Then after you’ve squeezed as much of the juice out as you can, tie shut into a ball, like this:

Then put into the pot that already has the squeezed lemongrass juice and water brought to a boil. This will make the flavor even more wonderful. Your juice will become delicious and fragrant – the ultimate fresh lemongrass drink!!

Detox with Fresh lemongrass drink!!

Today when I woke up my head felt foggy. I didn’t feel refreshed from my sleep at all. I need time to get myself ready for my Thai cooking class tomorrow. Suddenly a great idea came up when I saw my lemongrass plants. I started growing them this Spring and now there is so much lemongrass!

Lemongrass grows very well during summer here in South Florida because they love lots of sunlight and water. I got these plants from a wonderful friend here in South Florida.
