Manna Power

Originally I found a recipe for the "blue grape," a Pure Food & Wine juice. I have since altered it to my taste buds adding in fresh oranges and a hint of lime to juice. This drink is a great cleanser and should be drank alone, not with food. It never pays to combine fruit with non fruit foods anyway. You may become bloated and feel full of heavy air. No fun.

I have named my drink Manna Power because I feel energized and awake after I drink it.

VitaMix or a great high speed blender
2 grapefruits (skin removed)
1 orange (skin removed)
1/2 fresh lime juice squeezed in by hand after all juice is extracted from juicer
1/2 tspn of crystal blue manna powder

"Blue manna powder is 100% pure AFA (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae), one of nature's most perfect foods. Blue Manna is an extract of Blue-Green Algae. It contains high concentrations of phycocyanin, the blue pigment present in all blue-green algae. Phycocyanin has been recently shown to be a strong and specific inhibitor of the enzyme cycloozygenase-2 (COX-2), blocking the production of inflammatory eicosanoids in the body. Blue Manna is the concentrated Blue pigment that is extracted from the freshly harvested Blue-Green AFA. This is a highly potent brain food as well as a COX 2 inhibitor (a powerful anti-inflammatory). Many are extremely enthusiastic about the benefits of Blue Manna. Human clinical trials have shown anti-inflammatory and analgesic efficacy that compare with traditional treatments, without the secondary effects normally associated. PEA is also found in Cacao Beans, this partly explains the bliss effects of cacao and Blue Manna. Crystal Manna is the whole Blue-Green Algae, fresh-dried." (info via Raw Guru)
