We all know about the benefits of lemon water. A glass of warm water and fresh lemon juice in the morning is said to be extremely good for our health. It boosts your energy levels, helps to improve digestion and most importantly, it is used to detox the body and aid liver function.
If you don’t mind squeezing a fresh lemon early in the morning and prepare this healthy drink, that’s amazing. I have tried and tried, but I must admit, I can’t be that consistent (a Gemini, you know). Besides, I don’t want to give up my morning cup of coffee. Still, I want to kick start the day as healthy as possible. This is the reason I chose an alternative – ginger, lemon and honey.
The mixture is easy to make, it’s delicious and you don’t need to prepare it every single morning which in my opinion, is its greatest advantage. I don’t like ginger very much, to be honest, and I thought it would be a real struggle to eat this. However, it turned out to be a yummy combination and now my mornings begin with 1 or 2 tablespoons of the ginger mixture.
The recipe is pretty simple. You’ll need a blender but don’t worry if you don’t have one. You still could prepare your healthy ginger jar. Let’s see…
- 120 g ginger root
- 2 lemons
- 360 g raw honey
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon (optional)
1. Peel the fresh ginger and wash the lemons carefully.
2. Slice both ginger and lemons and put them in a blender. Add 1-2 tablespoons of the honey and some cinnamon if you wish. Blend until smooth.
3. Now, transfer it all into a bowl and add the rest of the honey. Stir until well-combined.
Alternatively, you could grate the ginger and chop the lemons into very small pieces. See? No blender needed.
4. Finally, pour the mixture into a glass jar. You’re done.
Keep it in the fridge and don’t forget to take a spoonful or two first thing in the morning. They say it could be stored for months. Isn’t that awesome? 🙂
