I previously shared that Sugar has a drinking problem … Sugar does not drink much water. At home, she drinks filtered water. Sugar refuses to drink water in parks fountain, so I always have bottled water. Sugar is a picky drinker, and I’ve been creative enticing her to drink more water (which I’ll be sharing on a future post). If you follow our blog, you know that Sugar loves bananas, so I flavored her water with ginger and banana. From what I read, Banana Tea is a common drink that many adults enjoy before bedtime. According to Dr. Oz, it’s a “sleeping pill in a peel.” For additional soothing effect, I added ginger.
Ginger Banana Tea
Ingredients: 1 Banana, 1/2 Tsp. Fresh Grated Ginger
Boil water. Cut off both ends of banana, and then cut in half. Place the banana and ginger in water. Boil for about 10 – 15 minutes.
Turn off the heat. Put the lid on it and let it steep for 10 minutes. Strain the water and pour into a mug. You can refrigerate overnight.
Serve it with small frozen banana cubes.
A tea that you can enjoy with your dog.
