Natural Flu-Fighter Hot Drink

Drink this natural flu-fighter hot drink every day during the cold season to keep away the colds and flu! It’s not only healthy but incredibly delicious, too! 

This is my go-to drink whenever I feel cold or want to speed up my metabolism and make my immune system stronger. I just love it! It’s so easy to make and it tastes amazing. The best part is that it’s all natural, so you can feel extra good knowing that both your body and your taste buds will love it!

This natural flu-fighting hot drink will also help you if you already have a cold or flu. Drink it hot, little by little, and you’ll feel better in no time! The ginger and lemon will boost your immune system and your metabolism, while the pollen will soothe your sore throat.

The recipe is very easy to make, so there’s no excuse for not making this daily during the cold season!

With this natural flu-fighting hot drink recipe I participate in the awesome blogger’s campaign organized by Green Sugar Romania. Ever since I discovered their products, I completely ditched sugar and started using stevia powder instead. In my opinion, it’s the best stevia powder on the market! It tastes just like real sugar and best of all, it’s natural. It’s not any sweeter either, I find it exactly as sweet as sugar. Love it!

With Green Sugar, you no longer have to stress about those extra calories, because it has none! Now you can indulge in your favorite desserts and sweet drinks with zero guilt! Rest assured that this amazing stevia sugar substitute is all natural and it doesn’t sacrifice the amazing flavor of real sugar that we all crave. Your body will thank you.

The first recipe that was a part of this wonderful campaign was my magic custard chocolate cake! Check it out, I’m sure you’ll fall in love with it right away! Who doesn’t love chocolate?!

Because this is a Romanian brand and I don’t think they currently sell their products in other countries. Hopefully, as the brand grows in popularity it will expand internationally. I will give more details about this campaign on the Romanian version of this recipe.

Right now I have a stubborn cold! This recipe is well embraced by my immune system. I do really appreciate your work! Thank you for this health advice!

You're welcome! Hope you'll heal quickly!

Can I clarify, is sweetener or green sugar within the macrobiotic rules? Thank you

Green sugar is made from stevia so it's ok. If you follow a 100% macrobiotic diet, you can't have any sweeteners...but nobody can be 100% macrobiotic. That's the diet for monks. :)

Ruxandra where can I find Green Sugar in the United States? I hate stevia in almost everything I have tried! I would love to try this and find that it is as good as you say it is. I have searched the internet and Amazon but only find it in Romania. Is there an American supplier or source of some kind?

Unfortunately they don't deliver in other countries yet. This is a very good sweetener and I hope they'll do this soon. It is part stevia, part erythritol, so maybe that's why it tastes so good. :) You should try to find one that has erythritol as well in its composition.

This sounds just like what the doctor ordered! Unfortunately, however, I'm allergic to ginger (and cinnamon)...can you recommend any other life-saving ingredient to substitute?

You can try to make it with turmeric or cloves. It will taste a lot different, of course, but the results are the same. :)
