Lisa, I love your recipes and can not wait for your book to come out. Quick question, Do you have any recipes that I can use my leftover pulp in? I have a Vitamix and would like to use the pulp in another dish.
I haven’t tested any recipes yet with leftover pulp, but I will try to do some testing in the near future!
I think you can use ginger pulp in oil. Let it infuse about a week, strain. Use as a hair/scalp oil treatment, and lymphatic massage oil.
Fruit and veggie pulps can go in cakes and muffins.
Love love your health drinks
Thank you so much for your recipes may God continue blessings you as you share to everyone..I love to make my homemade drinks…and always want to know how to make different types of drinks 🙏🙏.
Thanks for the recipes be blessed
I love all of these options. How often do you recommend drinking these, once a day, once a week?
I would say once or twice a week!
Hi just wondering, can you take too much turmeric and ginger in a day ? Would it hurt your system?
I have quite a bit of coconut milk on hand, but no coconut water. Can I use coconut milk in place of the water in some of these recipes?
It will depend on the recipe!
As I am new to smoothies, can you recommend a blender?
Absolutely! I always use a Vitamix blender, which you can find more information about on my website. Just type “Vitamix” into the search bar and you will find a few posts about it.
I love your recipes. They are v helpful. Thanks
Happy to hear these drinks are helpful Sunita!

I am desperate for a natural, homemade drink to help my inflammation, however, my body doesn’t take well to lemon/lime. Is there an alternative?
