Ginger and Turmeric Cold and Flu Gummies

cold and flu gummies

These are my favourite gummies to make when trying to fight off a cold. They are packed full of good stuff - turmeric, ginger, lemon, honey and coconut kefir to make for an anti inflammatory, immune boosting, good for your guts gummy.  

I make these especially for Anjali (my 2 and a half year old) and she loves them but if you don't like the flavour of turmeric you can adjust the amount of honey to suit.

I've been using Kultured Wellness cultures to make my coconut kefir but you can also substitute kombucha or water keeping in mind that if you use water you won't get the benefits of the probiotics. 

Fire Cider - Cold and Flu Tonic

Fire cider

Fire cider is a traditional folk remedy for coughs, colds and sore throats made from onion, garlic, ginger, turmeric, lemon, herbs and apple cider vinegar. 

We use this as a tonic mixed with honey in the cooler months to prevent and fight off colds when they strike.

The original recipe is made with horseradish which can be hard to find unless you grow it yourself so you can substitute daikon, regular radish or leave it out completely. If you can get a hold of horseradish I would highly recommend adding it in as it takes the flavour to a whole new level and is extremely delicious!!

You can also add in chillies or jalapeños to give it an extra kick but I opted to leave them out this time to make it more kid friendly.
