Question

Andrea du Plessis had 2 “recipes” for colds & the ‘flue on the Expresso Show yesterday morning. One was with chopped chili that you can take instead of a ‘flu injection and the other was a mixture of lemon juice and rooibos tea. Where can I find these recipes?

Answer

HI there

They should have been loaded onto the website – our web administrator is looking into it. However, in the meantime, here are the recipes and I will email the PDFs.

Red hot flu fighting shot:

1 crushed garlic clove

30 ml fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon honey

½ teaspoon lemon zest

1 level teaspoon finely grated or chopped fresh ginger

1 red chilli – finely chopped

Combine all the ingredients in a small glass and drink it all in one go.

Soothing flu shots:

If you have very sore throat, you may want to try the milder version:

1 crushed garlic clove

25 ml fresh orange juice

1 teaspoon honey

1 teaspoon finely grated or chopped fresh ginger

Combine all the ingredients in a small glass and drink it all in one go.

Soothing tea: (this is the one with rooibos & lemon)

2 green tea or rooibos bags

1 large lemon, sliced

Fresh ginger root: 2 pieces of approximately 5 cm – cleaned and roughly chopped

1 tablespoon honey

In a teapot, combine 2 teabags with 600 ml boiling water. Add sliced lemon, chopped ginger and honey and let stand for 5-10 minutes. Drink 200ml 3 times per day.
