Total Time 10 hrs 5 mins

Ingredients
 

  • 3 lemons washed in warm water
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 inches of ginger cut into thick slices
  • 1 pomegranate
  • 60 grams or 1/2 container of blue berries
  • 50 grams dried cranberries
  • 1 tsp manuka active honey to serve (see notes)

Instructions
 

  • Juice lemons and cut into quarters
  • Place all ingredients in slow cooker except for honey
  • Fill with water until about inch from top of a 3L slow cooker (approx 2L)
  • Cook on low over night (I did about 10 hours)
  • Ladle into cup stirring in honey to suit taste

Notes

  • To peel ginger I just scrap with sharp knife or young ginger just wash.
  • Use best quality honey you can afford.
  • Any fruits can be used but stick with red, blue and purple ones because they have the anthocyanins that are needed.
  • Drink one cup of a morning and any other time you wish.
  • This can be drank cold or warm. If warming only heat to 25 degree Celsius (95F) to retain the full properties of honey
  • Refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze in portions.
  • Cooked in Aldi 3L.

Notes on health/immunity benefits

  • Honey: antibacterial, stimulates immune system.
  • Ginger: anti nausea, anti-inflammatory and has antioxidants.
  • Red, blue, purple fruits: fight viruses & bacteria and stimulates immune system.
  • Cinnamon: has antioxidants and is anti-inflammatory.
  • Lemon: high in vitamin c and helps with hydration

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

  2. 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
