Trim Healthy Mama Ginger Lime “Good Girl Moonshine”

Trim Healthy Mama Ginger Lime Good Girl Moonshine

Confession time: I’ve been drinking and driving. That’s right, this sweet little Christian mama of seven has been cruising around town sipping “moonshine” from a mason jar. I told you I was a hick. 

Whoa, wait! No need for an intervention. There’s no alcohol in this “moonshine”. It’s a healthy beverage made with Apple Cider Vinegar and it fits right in with my Trim Healthy Mama diet.

The other day I had quite a few errands to run around town and I knew I’d be tempted to drive through and get a soda to sip throughout the day.  Luckily I had just mixed up a jar of my new favorite drink: Ginger Lime Good Girl Moonshine, a variation of one of the Trim Healthy Mama sippers: Good Girl Moonshine (GGMS), The Shrinker, and The Singing Canary. These drink recipes are not included in the book, but they were posted by the authors, Pearl and Serene, on the Trim Healthy Mama Facebook Group Page and they’re a huge hit in the Trim Healthy Mama community.

There are two major contributors in this drink for big-time health benefits: Ginger and Apple Cider Vinegar. 

  • Ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory treatment. It can help lower blood pressure, ease menstrual pain, help treat migraines, and even battle cancer cells in the body. If you have some time, read more about the medical benefits of ginger
  • Apple Cider Vinegar is made from fermented apples – and the really good for you stuff is unpastuerized and has “the mother” in it, which is high in enzymes and minerals. I like Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar and I drink a couple of tablespoons almost every day, and I even slip a teaspoon or two into my littles’ sippy cups. Why? Check out these 5 Reasons to Drink Apple Cider Vinegar.

Mix these two superstars up with a squirt of lime and some sugar-free sweetener and you’ve got yourself one healthy beverage that kicks the pants off any soda. 

Let’s make some moonshine!

Ginger Lime Trim Healthy Mama Good Girl Moonshine

Ingredients:

Trim Healthy Mama Ginger Lime Good Girl Moonshine

In a quart-sized mason jar grate about one tablespoon of fresh ginger. I don’t bother peeling mine (you really don’t have to) but if it freaks you out, you can easily peel ginger with a spoon before grating. Quick tip: ginger is easier to grate if it’s been frozen. I keep a little nub in the freezer in a plastic tub.

Grate the ginger directly into the mason jar.

It doesn’t have to be exact – you can eyeball it, after all, a little extra ginger certainly won’t hurt.

Next add a tablespoon of lime juice.

And two Stevia sweetener packets. Or a couple of “doonks” of Trim Healthy Mama pure stevia, or a teaspoon or two of Trim Healthy Mama Sweet Blend.

And then add two tablespoons of Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar. Be sure to shake up the bottle first, to get all the good stuff that tends to settle at the bottom.

Next, fill your mason jar with ice – about halfway.

Fill the jar with water, screw on the lid, and shake, shake, shake. And there you go! You’ve got one jar of Ginger Lime Trim Healthy Mama Good Girl Moonshine. You can drink it straight from the jar… perhaps while you rock on your porch and yell at the neighbors, your choice. I usually pour mine into a cup with a lid and a straw and sip it throughout the day while I’m taking care of my house and my family.

 Pearl and Serene – the authors of Trim Healthy Mama – have a super cute, very helpful video showing how they make a batch of Good Girl Moonshine:

      I wish I could take credit for such a cute name, but that’s from Serene and Pearl, the authors of Trim Healthy Mama 🙂

  2. Liz

    wow–this looks fantastic! I would happily sip this all day long. Does Bragg’s differ from other brands of cider vinegar? and lol, I could add a shot of vodka if I wasn’t driving 😉 Loving this post 🙂

      Lol! Liz I’m loving the shot of vodka idea 😉 I know that Braggs is organic and unpasteurized for added health benefits.

    Can you tell me what this is suppose to save to, it’s something named yummy right I can’t remember for sure. But when I try to save it, it just goes blank.

    1. amandacoers

      Hi Kellie 🙂 I’m not quite sure I know what you mean. Are you trying to print the recipe card at the bottom? Or pinning to Pinterest? You’ll have to forgive me, I have mommy brain most of the time. I’m thinking-impaired for the next five years at least.

  4. Amy

    Can I double the recipe to make this in a big pitur to drink over a day or 2? Or do the ingredients (ginger)need to be freshly added each day?

  5. Shannon Harvey

    This sounds so good for our hot humid days here in South Alabama! I’m hoping to get started with THM tomorrow! I don’t have the book yet, but have been reading a lot about it on your blog & others & on facebook! I can’t wait to try this “moonshine”! 🙂 (I won’t tell my preacher-husband it’s name! Ha!)
