When you're feeling under the weather, these refreshingly sweet and hydrating ice pops are just what the doctor ordered. Simply mix five cold-and-flu-fighting ingredients together and freeze 'em in ice pop molds for a few hours. They're made from grapefruit, guava and carrots, which nourish your system with immune-boosting vitamin C and beta-carotene, while helping to tame uncomfortable symptoms such as sneezing, coughing and a runny nose. Plus, they're soothing on a sore throat and gentle on an upset stomach.
- 1 cup pink grapefruit juice
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1 cup guava nectar or juice
- 1 cup carrot juice
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon lime juice
- 1 tablespoon honey (optional, for added sweetness)
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Pour the mixture into a set of standard ice pop molds and freeze until the pops are firm and solid, at least 3 hours.
