This morning, I ran across a link in my Facebook feed to The Coconut Mama and her Honey and Lemon Cough Syrup with Coconut Oil.
And I thought... we have all of that. We need to try it.
Once I got started, I realized.... this is all Bountiful Baskets.
With so many of us, I figured I'd double the recipe right off the bat. Pretty easy:
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup raw honey
- 3/8 cup lemon juice
From start to finish (pulling ingredients out to drinking some syrup myself) took me about five minutes.
After making this up, one thing I'll do for my next batch is to add about a tablespoon more of honey. Because honey has a lot of great things going for it, and chief among those is that it will make the lemon juice go down a bit more easily for my youngest two.
Go read what Coconut Mama has to say about all the benefits of these ingredients...
About twelve thumbs up here. At least, once we made it a bit sweeter.
