This recipe went viral when we posted it on our fan page on Facebook. Here’s why – as its name suggests, this drink helps shrink your fat cells. The combined thermogenic boosting ingredients promote energy and speed up your metabolism. But you’ll want to drink this simply because it tastes good! The Shrinker is not a meal replacement, keep up your regular THM meals and snacks, but it is designed to be sipped between set times of eating. It helps resist the urge to graze, scarf, or over-snack. This is a single serve recipe that makes 1 full quart to be sipped on all day. Recipe can be doubled for a 2-quart sipper! This recipe can be found on page 400 of the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook!

  1. Steep the tea bags in a mug of boiled water. Allow to cool somewhat and discard the tea bags.
  2. Pour the tea into a blender and add the almond milk, salt, vanilla, sweetener, cinnamon, and cayenne. This is your Shrinker concentrate. Blend well.
  3. Place the concentrate in a quart jar and fill to the top with ice cubes. Add enough cold water so the liquid reaches the top of the jar. Put a lid on the jar, shake well, then taste and adjust flavors. “Own it!!!!”
Recipe Notes

RECIPE AUTHOR: Serene Allison

Healing Shrinker: You can make this a Healing Shrinker by omitting the nut milk and replacing with ½ teaspoon of Just Gelatin, 1 teaspoon Integral Collagen, 1 teaspoon MCT oil, and an optional ¼ teaspoon Sunflower Lecithin. You will dissolve the gelatin into the mug of hot brewed tea, stir very well, then add to the blender along with the collagen, oil, lecithin, and ½ cup cold water. This makes an ultra-creamy shrinker.
