- Servings -
- My Notes -
- 1.5 cup Raspberries
- 3 tablespoon Sugar
- 1 Lemon - juiced
- Ice Cubes - to taste
- 4 cup Sparkling Mineral Water
- Fresh Mint Leaf - to taste
- In a high speed blender add the raspberries, lemon, and sugar. Blend until smooth and then pour the mixture through a fine mesh sieve to strain the raspberry seeds.
- Add ice cubes to each glass and distribute the raspberry juice equally amongst each glass. Top with sparkling water and a sprig of mint.
You can tolerate clover honey, you may replace the sugar with the honey. Honey contains fructose. Northern latitude honey (clover, raspberry, alfalfa) contain a closer ratio of fructose to glucose than tropical honey (like the honey that Monash University tested and noted as a high fodmap food). Since northern latitude honey contains a closer ratio of fructose to glucose, this improves fructose absorption and we find that many people with fructose intolerance can enjoy a small amount of northern latitude honey. Please try this and see how you do (easy enough to test out in tea, like Rooibos tea). Guest Guru Patsy Catsos recommends to her patients and readers, to not include honey. If you were referred to GutRxGurus by Patsy, please omit honey from this recipe. We're happy to make a suitable substitution suggestion. Feel free to post a question in the forum!
