We love learning all about the health benefits of certain plants. It helps us feel good to know that we are putting healthy foods into our bodies. The more educated you are about your health and well being the better off you are.
Mint and Ginger are two of the most powerful plants we have researched to date. The list of reported health benefits is incredibly long so we will name just a few.
For mint: improves digestion, cools body temperature, eases gas and bloating, clears skin, aids with depression, helps memory, aids weight loss and is a pick me up when fatigued.
For ginger: reduces asthma symptoms, aids nausea and motion sickness, controls hunger, it is antibacterial, anti-viral and anti-parasitic, protects against toxins, protects against respiratory problems, improves absorption and strengthens immunity.
On top of these wonderful effects this recipe also has good enzymes in the raw honey which helps you digest better as well.
With all this in mind we think it’s safe to say this is a very healthy drink and the taste is so good it’s sure to be a hit at any party or picnic. With no dangerous artificial colors or flavors and being low in sugar it’s the perfect family drink. Although we can’t promise it won’t be a little addicting 😉
Mint and Ginger Refresher
- 2-4 Tbs. fresh grated ginger
- ½ cup fresh mint, snipped
- 1 ½ cups raw honey
- 2 cups water
- sparkling mineral water
Combine all ingredients except mineral water in a half gallon Mason jar. Shake very well to incorporate the honey into the water. Place in the refrigerate for 4-8 hours to let flavors blend. Strain to remove the chunks of mint and ginger. You now have your syrup. To serve add ¼ cup syrup to ½ – ¾ cup sparkling water. Stir and enjoy! We like to serve this in fun party glasses.
