Ningxia Red Recipes- Shots, Smoothies, Popsicles & Gummies!

“Which essential oils do you recommend adding to your NingXia Red?” is a popular question I get on a regular basis. My answer, “It depends on your focus.” I know, I know, that is probably not the answer you are looking for. I want to walk you through some steps for customizing your NingXia Red.


Step 1
Determine your need. Everyone has their own special desires. My focus is twofold; first, I like to add additional flavors to appeal to my pallet. For this I generally stick to the citrus oils. Lime is my current favorite. Second, I am interested in adding oils for weight management.

Step 2
Because I don’t normally change my needs day to day, I like to customize my entire bottle of juice by adding the oils directly to the bottle. This simplifies my morning routine and makes sure I don’t miss out on the benefits.

Step 3
Shake, pour, and enjoy. You now have a quick and simple way to make sure you are getting your customized daily whole-body nutrient infusion.

Here are a few simple recipes for creating your own customized bottle of NingXia Red. As always please follow individual label cautions and usage guidelines.

WHOLE BOTTLE RECIPES: 
Tangerine Blast 
10 drops tangerine essential oil
3 drops lime essential oil
Immunity (perfect for supporting a healthy immune system)
2 drops Thieves essential oil blend (can easily overpower the flavor)

Slique Shot (great addition to the Slique regimen)

POPSICLES:

Strawberry Lemon-Lime Popsicles
Makes about 6 1/2-cup popsicles
1/2 cup evaporated cane juice crystals
2 pints fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
1/2 cup water
4 drops Lime essential oil
2 drops Lemon essential oil
1 drop Black Pepper essential oil (optional)
1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
Bring evaporated cane juice crystals, strawberries, and water to a boil in a small saucepan. Simmer until the crystals are dissolved, and then remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
When cooled, add Lime, Lemon, Black Pepper (if using), and salt and stir to combine. Process the mixture in a food processor or blender until smooth. Divide between popsicle molds, leaving 1/4-inch space at the top for expansion. 
Freeze overnight or until completely frozen before removing from molds.

Yogurt Parfait Popsicles
Makes about 6 1/2-cup popsicles
1 1/2 pints fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
1/4 cup honey
1 cup plain yogurt
1 drop Ocotea essential oil
1/2 to 1 cup granola
Bring strawberries and honey to a boil in a small saucepan. Simmer for 10 minutes, and then remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
When cooled, combine yogurt and Ocotea essential oil in a small bowl, and then scoop a generous spoonful of the strawberry mixture into the bottom of each mold. Add a spoonful of granola and a spoonful of the strawberry mixture. Continue to layer yogurt, granola, and strawberries until the molds are filled to 1/4 inch from the top. Tap molds lightly against the counter to remove air bubbles.
Freeze overnight or until completely frozen and enjoy!

NingXia Red Orange Popsicles
Makes about 6 1/2-cup popsicles
1 cup water
2 cups NingXia Red®
3 drops Orange essential oil
Combine water, NingXia Red, and Orange essential oil in a bowl. Divide between popsicle molds, leaving 1/4 inch at the top for expansion.
Freeze overnight or until completely frozen before removing from molds.
Tips:
Don’t have any popsicle molds? You can use any kind of small cup to mold the popsicles. When the mixture is halfway frozen, insert a popsicle stick.
To unmold popsicles, dip the frozen molds in a warm bowl of water until the popsicles are easily removed. If the stick comes out before the popsicle, they weren’t frozen enough.
To store, unmold all of the popsicles and place them on a waxed paper-lined tray and refreeze for 10 minutes. Place popsicles in freezer bags, separated by extra strips of waxed paper.

NINGXIA GUMMIES:

This makes ALOT of gummies.
1/2c 100% juice (we used Apple, but grape or orange would be great!)
1/2c Ningxia Red
2 1/2 envelopes Gelatin
3 Tbsp. Honey
6 drops Lemon Oil
I have also done this with Mindwise instead of Ningxia.
Process:
Add 1/2c juice to small saucepan. Top with gelatin, whisk in. Heat on low-medium heat until no longer grainy & is thin (it will start opaque & turn clear).
Pull from heat, add honey whisk in, I whisked until it had cooled a bit, then I added Ningxia & essential oils. (I didn't want it to hot, because it can affect the essential oils properties). I used a clean medicine dosing syringe to fill my mold. The extra I put in a glass pan. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Pop out of mold, or pan. Store in airtight container.
