ELDERBERRY JUICE RECIPE
Elderberries can be consumed in various ways, but this easy juice recipe is one of the simplest methods. By heating the elderberries and creating a warm juice, you will help to activate the compounds in the elderberries that are responsible for boosting your immune system.
To make your own elderberry juice, you will first have to prepare the elderberries. Clean the elderberries and place in a saucepan. Add enough water to cover. Bring the saucepan to a boil, turn off the heat, and let the elderberries sit for a few hours. Strain the juice into a container and store in your fridge. You can discard the berries.
Elderberry Juice Ingredients:
16 ounces of elderberry liquid (using instruction from above)
4 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of raw honey
Combine 16 ounces of elderberry juice with 4 tablespoons of lemon juice. Mix thoroughly in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the raw honey. Drink the elderberry juice while still warm.
Drink your elderberry juice every day to prevent cold or flus, or to lessen the symptoms—if you already have a cold or flu.
Consuming elderberries regularly will help improve your immune system and increase your body’s ability to fight disease and protect against influenza.
