My lovelies, how are you feeling? In our end, it seems to be already the season of sneezing, sniffling or coughing. Yup, no matter where I look, I feel like everyone would certainly benefit from a warm drink and a day spent on a sofa under a cozy blanket. Even, Balazs and I’ve been battling a cold but the one thing that really helped was this flavoured honey.
It’s a wonderful mix of ginger (with its antibiotic qualities), turmeric (strong antioxidant and powerful body cleanser), lemon zest (aka immunity booster) and a dash of black pepper. It goes amazingly with a hot afternoon tea or on its own in a cup of hot water.
Make a whole jar, keep it in the fridge and use it daily. xo
Ginger & Turmeric Honey Elixir
(Makes 1/2 cup. Recipe by Green Kitchen Stories)
- 1/2 cup (120 ml) honey
- 3 tbsp freshly grated ginger
- 2 tsp ground turmeric
- 1 organic unwaxed lemon, freshly grated zest
- 1 pinch ground black pepper
Stir together all ingredients in a bowl. Taste and add more ginger or turmeric if needed. Aim for a really strong flavour, you’ll only add a few teaspoons to a cup of water. Store it in a glass container. Boil a cup of water and let slightly cool (to keep the benefits from the honey intact), stir in a few teaspoons of the honey mixture and drink. You can also add this to your favourite brewed tea.
P.S: Also, this superfood mocktail, this avocado booster and that magic cold and flu tea :)
P.P.S: To keep the flu away.
