My toddler has had a cough since yesterday. Having a sick kid isn’t fun, but hearing her croaky voice is just downright sad. What do you do for a sore throat when it’s too warm out for hot tea or your child is refusing it?
My younger daughter has been teething, so in order to alleviate the pain of long, hot afternoons with crying kids I’ve been blending berries and veggies and freezing the smoothie liquid in candy molds for small, baby-sized popsicle bites. This gave me an idea–a soothing sore throat slushie! This slushie combines a number of immune boosting ingredients into a delicious, nurturing drink that is quite the pick me up, sick or not (although, poor Madi isn’t allowed to try this one yet).
Sore Throat Slushie
- 1-2 Tbsp Honey
- 1/4 Cup Lemon juice More or less, depending on your tastes
- 2 Cups Ice
- 1/2 Tbsp Grated ginger Or ginger infusion
- 1-2 Tbsp Chamomile tea Brewed strong
- 1-2 Tbsp Red raspberry leaf tea Optional, brewed strong
Dissolve honey in warm tea.
Combine ingredients in a blender and blend untik smooth
