The RSF Fresh Market Recipe of the Week is…a drink!
Quick and Easy Cold and & Flu Season Immunity Detox Tea

RSFFM Honey Lemon Ginger Mint 2

With the change in season often comes added stress on the immune system as the body first adjusts to the changes in temperatures, pollens and exposure to different viruses.  This is a really simple “tea” you can have on the go to help keep boost your immunity, detox and cleanse your body and reduce inflammation!


Easy Lemon, Honey, Ginger Detox Tea
  • 1 cup of warm water
  • 1 teaspoon of Lemon Ginger Honey (SD Honey Company)
RSFFM Honey ginger_lemonSimply add the honey which is infused with lemon and ginger to a glass of hot water for an anti-inflammatory cleansing tea!  Ginger will stimulate circulation.  You can have this as a warm drink, or once the honey has melted you can add a little ice and mint for a refreshing iced drink.  If you have fresh ginger and lemon you can add a slice of each to this recipe, however for the times you are in a hurry, this is a quick and simple solution!


Lemon juice is a great source of vitamin C, an antioxidant that is vital for a strong immune system. When added to tea, lemon juice can provide your immune system with a much-needed boost. The vitamin C in lemon juice can also help neutralize the activity of waste products called free radicals in the body, reducing inflammation and swelling caused by free radicals in the body. By stemming damage due to inflammation in your body, vitamin C may decrease the risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer.


Traditionally, ginger has been used for the relief of nausea, upset stomach and digestive distress. However, this root plant also has other therapeutic properties as an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory. Ginger can promote a healthy sweating that aids in the detoxification of the body, which is often helpful when suffering from a cold or flu. Ginger is also helpful for settling upset stomachs as well as dizziness, nausea, vomiting and cold sweating, which can accompany digestive problems.

Honey has a soothing effect on sore throats, making it an effective and natural cough suppressant. It may also boost the body’s immune system by aiding in the production of white blood cells. This improves your ability to fight infection and helps reduce fevers. The natural sweetness of honey also balances the tartness of the lemon and the ginger’s spice, giving honey, lemon and ginger tea its soothing flavor.


Buon Appetito!
