Cleansing Lemon Shot

A lot of exciting things are going on at the moment and time to come up with new recipes is nowhere near to be found. Baby Lily is having a bad cold that won't budge, which made me come to think about a health shot my mother in law taught me how to make some eight years ago.

Cleansing Lemon Shot
4 lemons, washed and thinly sliced
10 cloves of garlic, crushed
5cm/2inch piece of ginger, thinly sliced

There is no need to peel any of the ingredients. Place all of the ingredients in a medium sized pan with enough water to cover it. Bring to the boil then lower the heat and allow to simmer under lid on a very low heat for about 20min. Turn off the heat and allow to cool, lid still on. Save only the liquid in a glass bottle. It will last in the fridge for up to a week. Have a shot every morning before breakfast to get the body going.

HEALTH BENEFITS of Garlic: Garlic is a great source of sulfur, which plays a vital part in detoxifying the body from toxins. Garlic works as a great antioxidant and antibacterial and has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries.
