Tia's 'The Clense' made with Red Espresso, Rooibos Tea in a ChemexTia’s “The Cleanse”

Diet trends are always coming and going, but this year's trend is actually a pretty good one. Drinking warm lemon water can kick-start the digestive system, cleanse the body, and improve your mood. Although warm lemon water is not that appealing, with the help of my little sister Caylee, we have come up with a tasty beverage that can help cleanse the body and make you feel great.

Yield: 1, 16 oz. Drink
23 calories

•  ½ of a Lemon
•  1 Tbsp. Cinnamon Powder
•  1 Pump or ¼ oz. Monin Honey Sweetener
•  Double Shot of Red Espresso (1 scoop, 14 grams)
•  12 oz. Hot Water

Directions: Brew all ingredients in a Chemex. Wet filter with a little hot water then add Red Espresso. Squeeze half a lemon over top and let it soak into the tea. Dust cinnamon powder over the top then add water. Just like brewing coffee in a Chemex, pour your water in a circular motion and give it a little time in between pours. Once water is extracted, pour it into a cup with the honey sweetener and stir well. It’s best to drink first thing in the morning or before you go to bed.
