Molasses Wake-Up Drink


One tablespoon of blackstrap molasses contains about 17% of the RDA of calcium and iron, making this a true energy drink, unlike the temporary and illusory energy “boost” provided by coffee.

1 cup boiling water

1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses

Squeeze of lemon juice

Bring water to a boil and pour into cup. Spoon molasses into hot water and stir until molasses dissolves. Squeeze lemon in and drink hot.

Makes one individual serving.
