Kidney refresher with Lime and Cinnamon Barley water
“I love to make refreshing and healthful drinks. This is going to be a new favorite of mine. It’s a fantastic drink in its own right but you can drink it daily to help cleanse your kidneys. If you are on medications make sure that this won’t contraindicate first.”
I use interesting Moroccan style glasses to serve up my delicious Kidney refresher. I serve it cold straight from the fridge.
1 litre of filtered water
175g pearl barley (thoroughly washed)
A 6cm/2.5inch *Sri Lanka/Ceylon cinnamon quill (not Cassia)
A thumb of fresh garlic peeled and thinly sliced.
The juice of half a lime
1 to 2 tablespoons of the honey of your choice. I like orange blossom in this recipe
*Sri Lanka Cinnamon has lower levels of a substance called coumarin. Chinese Cassia has more coumarin that Sri Lankan Cinnamon. Too much coumarin can damage your Liver.
