Winter Health Tonic

Winter Health Tonic

As much as I love plain old OJ, sometimes you do need a little more pep in your step. I’m also a little too aware of how much sugar there is in regular breakfast OJ to drink on a regular basis, and as a result I often make my own. That way I’m in control of the ingredients and sugar levels, because nobody wants a fructose-induced-migraine before 10am.

Keep scrolling to find the recipe for my Winter Health Tonic. It contains only a handful of ingredients, but they’re the ideal combination to fight off any bugs or bacteria that might migrate towards your immune system in the colder months.

WINTER HEALTH TONIC


serves one

half a pineapple

two oranges

one lemon

thumb-sized knob of ginger

one cup of water

Remove the peel from the lemon and oranges, and take the skin off of the pineapple and ginger. Place all items (yep – the whole lemon) in a blender with the cup of water and blitz until smooth. Pour through a fine mesh strainer, stirring the pulp carefully and gently pressing through the mesh until there is only about 2-3 tbsp left. Discard the pulp. You could add a sprinkle of turmeric in at this step, but that’s totally up to you. Serve and enjoy!

The tonic will store in an airtight jar in the refrigerator for a day or two, and you could also freeze the tonic into popsicle moulds for a fun winter treat to eat in the sunshine if you fancy.
