feel better pops

Cold & flu season... hooray! Here's a little secret that's sure to soothe sore little throats and cool down warm bodies.

Citrus-Honey-Ginger Pops

fresh juice of 6 limes

about 1/4 cup honey (or to taste)
1 cup water
1 or 2-inch piece of fresh ginger root, peeled and sliced

Bring all ingredients to a low boil, then simmer 10 minutes.

Allow to cool completely, then transfer mixture to an ice cube tray.
About two hours into the freezing process, add lollipop sticks or popsicle sticks to each cube.
Freeze a few more hours, or overnight.

Enjoy as often as needed!

When my family is sick, I treat symptoms as naturally as possible. These pops are great because they are medication and sugar-free, but all of the ingredients have natural healing properties. And they are refreshing and delicious! When Camden was sick last week, I snuck a few when she wasn't looking!

After trying every ginger product out there when I was nauseated during the first trimester, just the thought of ginger makes me want to vomit-- but I bet I could get Matt to make some of these for Mason.
