A handful of Camote tops (o para mas madali at wala nang sukat sukat, isang tali ng talbos ng kamote galing sa palengke ^__^)

About 2 glasses of water

5-8 Calamansi fruit

Sugar/Honey

 

Instructions:

1. Boil Camote tops in water

2. Pour and strain boiled water in a glass

3. Juice all  the Calamansi

4. Mix camote tops water and Calamansi juice together (Watch the color change from dark, almost black liquid to a beautiful maroon/wine red color. It almost feels like a Science experiment! Super fun!)

5. Add honey or sugar to sweeten according to desired taste (Tip: Less sugar for babies and kids. Warning: No honey for babies below 1 year old)

6. Stir, add ice, then serve! (Makes about 2 glasses)

 

It’s amazingly easy to prepare and it’s loaded with vitamins. Your kids will surely love the tangy flavor and the bright color! I know my boy does.
