The Singing Canary – THM

April 8, 2014


There have been so many days where I’m just lacking energy. After birthing a half dozen babies it’s no wonder. This delicious drink here has done wonders to my energy levels. And I have no doubt it helps boost that worn out immune system.

Compliments of Trim Healthy Mama the Singing Canary tastes, to me, just like an orangecicle! Now, the first time I made it was just like a tart lemon drink. But I recalled people talking about how divine it tasted so I made it one more time and added a good dose of sweetener. Yeah, that did it. Extra Truvia/Stevia made this drink worth the hassle it takes to make it.

Here is a copy of the recipe and I’ll just briefly go over how I make it.

2 lemons
4000 mg Vitamin C (buffered ascorbic acid powder or tablets or whatever is in your cupboard that does not include sugar or dyes)
1 tsp. non irradiated turmeric powder
1 flat, tsp. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
2 tsp. Whey Protein Powder (look for CFM whey protein isolate)
3 generous pinches of high mineral salt like Celtic Sea Salt
3 splashes vanilla extract
Pure Stevia Extract to taste

Peel two lemons. Slice and remove the seeds. I like to have as much Rutin as I can in my drink so I leave as much of the white rind as I can. Then blend with three cups of water for 30 seconds.

Nice and frothy now.

Next pour the blended lemon and water into a nut milk bag. Capture the thick remains in the bag while allowing the lemon water to pour into a pitcher. Next you will squeeze and mush around the bag. Making sure you get as much of the liquid as you can out.

You’ll be left with this fun little ball of lemon dough. It’s neat but throw it out. Unless you can think of something creative to do with it. I have yet to come up with anything. Put it down your disposal to freshen you kitchen drain?

I then add the remaining ingredients to the blender and mix them up. Last I re-add the lemon water with a very good amount of Truvia and/or Stevia. Keep taste testing it til you’re satisfied.

I have yet to add the essential oil but I’m just now beginning to explore EO’s. Seems like a good thing. I’ll update later.

I will definitely be making this many times this week as we begin to tackle spring cleaning!
