The Illinois Public Health Institute (IPHI), which administers the Illinois Alliance to Prevent Obesity (IAPO), hosted a Rethink Your Drink video and photo sweepstakes to illustrate for Illinois residents that it is easy to make low-sugar beverages — and delicious too! The winner of the sweepstakes, selected at random from the eligible entries, was Jennifer from Woodridge, Illinois. Her recipe was a pear, ginger, cinnamon infused tea! She will receive a Magic Bullet NutriBullet 12-Piece High-Speed Blender/Mixer System.
Winning recipe: 1 Organic Pear, Cinnamon stick, 1 tablespoon fresh ginger sliced. Bring 4 ounces spring water to just under a boil and then turn off heat. Add sliced pear, cinnamon stick and fresh ginger. Let sit for 20 minutes for maximum flavor. Add 12 ounces additional warm water and stir. The drink is warm and cozy without the sugar, dairy, or caffeine!
Thanks to those who participated in the sweepstakes and helped to spread the word!
