Cranberry Pink Drink
I set out to make a nutritional drink for a couple reasons. One simply because I like to get in at least 2 quarts of liquid or more in a day. The other happens to be my blood pressure. No matter what I do, or how well I eat, I can’t seem to get it down where it needs to be. I have tried several different herbal products and vitamins. Nothing moves it much. I am hoping this drink can be an affordable aid in lowering my blood pressure. It may not be finished, so if I add to it I will edit and add those changes. But it is SO GOOD! That even my stevia hating son and husband like it. In fact I have to either be selfish, or make a lot… because all the kids like it!
This would be a FP drink if following Trim Healthy Mama
Cranberry Pink Drink
2 lemons, juiced
4 Tablespoons 100% cranberry juice
1 teaspoon vitamin C powder
1 juniper berry capsule
1 hawthorn berry capsule
1/2 teaspoon THM stevia extract powder
2 Tablespoons liquid probiotic, berry flavored is good (I used this one)
Juice the lemons. Empty the herbs out of the capsules and throw the capsules away. I plan to try using the tincture later, but for now, capsules are what I have. Add all ingredients to the blender, except for the probiotic. Blend to mix in the herbs and stevia so there won’t be clumps. Then add the probiotic and stir gently. Pour into 2-1 quart jars, adding water to fill the jars. Also add ice if desired.
Warning: The probiotic contains a warning on the jar. Not to shake and to open slowly. I failed to open slowly… and half my jar quickly escaped! ? I don’t want you to make the same mistake!
When traveling, I just shake up the ingredients in a quart jar. You can then divide it between two jars, and add water and ice and the probiotic if you have it.
This is an easy and quick drink!

Did this drink help lower your blood pressure? If it helps, I want to make it for my husband. Thanks!
Hi Beth. I cannot say that it directly did. I finally went to a doctor and there was a cause of my high blood pressure. My adrenals were producing too much aldosterone… a hormone. I find that a healthy diet including plenty of fluids decreases the amount of medication I have to take… but I still haven’t found anything natural that works enough. 🙁 The drink tastes good, though! You can leave the herbs out, or use them.
