CSA Week 28

Hello and Happy Friday! This week in CSA everyone will receive kn-bravo radishes, or more commonly called purple daikons. These radishes benefit digestion by signaling amylase production, an enzyme that helps metabolize carbohydrates in the body. Also used as a diuretic, daikon helps eliminate metabolic waste, reducing facial puffiness. This combined with a few other common ingredients can make a delicious drink that is not only good for your inside but rejuvenates while it detoxifies.

BETTER-THAN-BOTOX SUPERFOOD TONIC

Ingredients:

  • 1 hearty bunch watercress with roots removed (keep roots attached to stems until use)
  • ¼ cup goji berries
  • 2 sweet Meyer lemons
  • 3-5 sprigs savory + 1 or 2 for garnish
  • 1 purple bravo daikon radish + a few pieces for garnish
  • 1 tsp matcha
  • dash of fine pink salt
  • 2 oz kombucha


Instructions:

In a juicer, juice radish, goji berries, lemons, watercress and savory. Set aside.

*Juicing goji berries is optional. Feel free to disperse whole fruit among the tonics to enjoy a little texture to your drinks.

Whisk in pink salt and matcha until stirred well. You can also place juice plus salt and matcha into a shaker to combine well.

Pour juice tonic into glasses and top with kombucha.

Garnish with a daikon twist and pinch of savory.
