Hot Ginger And Lemon With Seabuckthorn
Updated: Oct 23, 2019
Seabuckthorn is a thorny shrub that you’ll find, curiously enough, along many a coast line. The berries have a superbly unusual sour flavour and an impressive nutritional profile rich in vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. Studies have shown medicinal components in seabuckthorn berries to support normal immune function and cholesterol-lowering properties.
Mixed with ginger, lemon, honey and hot water, this hot tonic is wonderfully soothing and comforting when the cold season starts.
For 1 mug;
1 tblsp seabuckthorn berries
1 thick slice of ginger
Juice of half a lemon
1 tsp honey
Either steep the ingredients in hot water and sip, or you can blend with some cold water, top with enough hot water for a mug-full and strain through a sieve for a clear drink.
*caution with seabuckthorn if taking blood thinning medication, have low blood pressure, scheduled for surgery or are pregnant or breastfeeding*
