Feeling under the weather? Grab a couple of these immunity cubes when you feel the first signs of sickness, need to relax, are having digestion issues, or just need something soothing when it’s chilly outside.
These cubes couldn’t be easier to make! Add your ingredients to a blender, transfer them to your ice cube tray, freeze overnight, and then remove them when they are frozen. It’s that easy and simple!
Each ingredient is filled with powerful healing properties. Turmeric provides amazing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. It’s been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years as a herbal remedy for conditions such as breathing problems, joint pain, fatigue, and digestive issues.
Ginger is also naturally anti-inflammatory and is known to aid digestion and relieve nausea. Lemons help produce healthy bowel movements and boost your immune system. The perfect ingredients to start your mornings!
To make these immunity cubes, peel all the ingredients and add them to a blender until smooth. Then transfer your mixture to a cheesecloth or a strainer and strain the mixture over a bowl until all the lumps are gone. If you like texture, skip that step! Transfer the mixture into an ice cube/sphere tray then freeze overnight or for at least six hours.
These cubes can be served in multiple ways. Defrost two cubes in a small glass and drink them down quickly like a shot! Or use them like ice cubes: drop two cubes into hot water or warm, non-dairy milk. Finally, try using these cubes in one of your favorite smoothies. These cubes will stay good frozen for up to a month!
