Feel Better: Immune Boosting Popsicles for the Cold Season

IMMUNITY BOOST POPSICLES

Feel-better popsicles are just the thing that’s needed during this cold season. They pair well with chicken soup, chamomile tea, piles of tissues, and excessive coughing, sneezing, and Netflix binge-watching.

I hope it’s not the case, but perhaps you’re starting off the new year with a head cold. I’m just coming off my third of the season, the fog lifting a bit, my head less of a puddle. Generally, hot liquids are my lifeline when I’m sick, though I found this last time around I wanted something cold to soothe my aching throat. These immune boosting popsicles were just the thing. They pair well with chicken soup, chamomile tea, piles of tissues, and excessive coughing, sneezing, and Netflix binge-watching.
