My family has so thoughtfully been sharing around a cold over the last little while. A week after getting hit with it, I am just now over it and let me tell you, boy was it a doozy! Stuffy nose, headache, sinus pain, cough, sore throat, you name it I had it. My brother tried this juice when he had the cold and said it really helped him so I figured it probably wouldn’t hurt me to try it either.
First of all, it felt AMAZING on my sore throat. I really think it did help my cold overall too. After a steaming mug of this juice the night before, I woke up less congested the following morning. When I finally wasn’t so congested and could taste things again, I was surprised at how yummy it actually was. One night I made two cups of it just because it was so good! I will definitely be keeping this recipe in my back pocket for any future colds! *From “The Funky Fresh Juice Book” by Jason Vale
“This is the juice master’s take on a Lemsip, only without a drug in sight. It has become widely known as the J’M-sip (pronounced “Jemsip”).
- 1 apple (gala or golden delicious)
- 3cm chunk of fresh ginger root
- Half a fresh lemon, peeled
- 1 tsp. of honey (optional)
- Hot water
- 10 drops liquid echinacea
Juice the apple, ginger and lemon. Pour the juice into your favorite mug. Top the mug up with hot water. Add honey and echinacea, stir well and sip your way back to health!
