Winter elixir

Winter elixir

Winter is a time in which we are meant to slow down, stay warm, and hibernate a little, however, our modern lifestyles don’t really allow for this to happen. Subsequently, we keep up our busy lifestyles and battle the cold, which leaves us prone to the winter bugs. To help keep my immune system at its best I like to make a batch of this each week to keep on hand. It is packed with vitamin C and anti-inflammatory ingredients to support the immune system. Try having 2-3 tablespoons of the syrup with hot water before breakfast, or before bed. It can also be enjoyed cold, or even mixed with water and frozen into ice blocks to help soothe a sore throat.



Makes 300ml

3/4 cup of lemon juice
½ cup Manuka honey
1/2 cup filtered water
Juice of 10cm piece of ginger
Juice of 2-3 pieces of turmeric

1. Use a juicer to juice the lemons, ginger, and turmeric. If you don’t have a juicer, simply squeeze the lemons and then grate the ginger and turmeric.
2. Combine all ingredients in a pot, and simmer on a very low heat until the honey melts.
3. Pour into a glass bottle and refrigerate.
4. Enjoy 2-3 tablespoons of syrup with hot or cold water.
