Cold Season is upon us…!


Dear Diary,

It’s cold season and I’ve fallen victim; four days and counting and the sniffles haven’t let up… The worst part is I’ve finished, “Gilmore Girls” and I can’t watch, “House of Cards Season 3,” without my husband. So, with Netflix not offering up ways to pass the time, I’ve turned to Pinterest to search for cold relief recipes.

My initial search left me with a lot of hot honey, lemon and ginger drinks. Here’s the thing though, I prefer a cool smoothie when my throat is giving me trouble. Maybe it’s the hotter temperatures in Los Angeles, but cooler drinks offer me a better reprieve. So I’ve taken the concept of hot soothing drink and turned it into a smoothie.  If any of you fall victim, make this it’s a throat saver. Oh my, my jokes suffer when I’m sick. Sorry y’all!!

lemon ginger

Here’s what you need:

-1 banana

- 1 slice of lemon

-  2 tsp. honey

- 1 tsp. fresh ginger

- 1/4 cup of water or coconut water

- 3 ice cubes

Peel the ginger and grate, squeeze the lemon and continue to add the rest of the ingredients into the blender. Pulse until frothy and drizzle a little honey on top.  Serve cold and enjoy!
