Notes

1To peel ginger I just scrap with sharp knife or young ginger just wash.

2Use best quality honey you can afford.

3Any fruits can be used but stick with red, blue and purple ones because they have the anthocyanins that are needed.

4Drink one cup of a morning and any other time you wish.

5This can be drank cold or warm. If warming only heat to 25 degree Celsius (95F) to retain the full properties of honey

6Refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze in portions.

7Cooked in Aldi 3L.

I left it all chunky. I don’t eat the lemon skins or ginger but I eat the fruit. If you wanted to blend you could but remove the skins or it will become bitter from the whites of the lemons. I drink warm or cold

Did you blitz it all up or does it all cool down to a smoothie like consistency? Do you drink hot or cold? Thanks
