When you’re taking certain medications, you can get “blocked up” if you know what I mean. Since prune juice is way too sweet, I invented a prune juice and Diet Coke mocktail to cut down the sweetness and add a little carbonation to the drink. It’s about 1/3 a pint glass of prune juice and a whole can of Diet Coke. Plus, I’ve been told that the caffeine in a drink like Diet Coke helps certain medications work better. I know that it helps me when I get an upset tummy or when I have a headache.
If you’re a Star Trek: Next Generation fan, you know that Worf, who’s Klingon, calls prune juice “a warrior’s drink.” Well, think of this as a warrior on a diet drink. Even Klingons have to keep at their fighting weight!
