Hot Tottie, Fresh squeezed Blood Orange + Navel + Tangerine Juice, and Ginger Chews
Written by contibutor Britney Manuel of Btanjerine.
Well I thought that I could escape from getting sick, but alas I have succumb ((sniff sniff cough cough)). I remembered this honey lemon concoction circulating around Facebook and Pinterest (it has been pinned over 800+ times) and thought it was worth a try. I have adapted this recipe from The Coconut Mama. You can find the original recipe here, with all the informative health benefits. I made a bigger batch so that I could sip it over the course of a couple of days. And since my daughter just got sick as well, it was perfect to have on hand.
HOT TOTTIE HONEY LEMON COUGH SYRUP WITH COCONUT OIL
1 blood orange (or any other type of orange)
1/4 cup of coconut oil
1/3 cup of raw honey
Juice lemons and blood orange. Warm the coconut oil until it melts and mix all ingredients together and enjoy.
Sip as much as needed, and store in the refrigerator. The coconut oil will harden when it is cold, so gently warm the portions you need until the coconut oil melts.
Makes 2 1/2 cups
This would make a great gift for this flu season. A jar of the hot tottie, ginger chews that you can find here, and freshly squeezed blood orange juice. A trio sure to help anybody feel a little more pep in their step!
