Artichoke Tea with Ginger

This artichoke tea is a wonderful natural drink for your little ones.  I remember when I was young, my mom would make plain artichoke drink with sugar and water.

Ingredients:

  • 2.5 Liter water
  • 1 or 2 artichoke
  • 2 Tbsp basil seeds
  • 5 Tbsp agave nectar
  • 1 piece of ginger (about 2 inches long)

Directions:

1.  Peel and cut the ginger. 2.  Soak the basil seeds in a bowl of water. 

2.  Cut the artichoke in half and put it in a pot of 2.5 liter of water.  Bring the water to a boil and cook for 20 minutes or until the center of artichoke is soft. 

3. Discard the artichoke.  I used a mesh spoon to scoop any particles remained in the artichoke drink. 

4.  Drop in the ginger pieces.  Pour the drink into a pitcher. 

5.  Add the bowl of soaked basil seeds into the mixture.  Add 5 Tbsp of agave nectar into the mixture.   Mix and serve the artichoke cold or hot.
