The Morning Long Life Cocktail is something we started consuming when we were on the Fat Flush Diet - http://www.annlouise.com/. We drink it every morning as part of our daily routine. Here is our modified version-

Ingredients
8 0z. Cranberry Water*
1 tsp. powdered whole flake psyllium husks (i.e., Whole Foods 365 organic)
1/8 tsp. stevia

Directions
To make the *Cranberry Water you need to buy pure, unsweetened Cranberry Juice. Make sure to check the label to avoid buying a cranberry juice sweetened with sugar or other juices. Knudsen makes an unsweetened cranberry juice that can be bought at Safeway. Use a 32 oz. jar/bottle (can be an empty juice bottle) and pour 4 oz. of cranberry juice in the bottom. Fill the bottle full with water. Use for Long Life Cocktails and Smoothies as directed.

For Long Life Cocktail place the psyllium husks and stevia in the bottom of a glass. Pour the cranberry water on top. Drink promptly with a straw.
