Coconut Immunity Slice

Posted by Lorna Macchia on

We usually try and avoid sugars and foods containing a lot of sugar when we are feeling a bit run down or unwell, to ensure our gut & metabolic health is optimal for our body to heal. 

After a period recently where we had a run of family members with minor, niggling health issues I came up with this slice using our potent

Immunity Elixir (Shiitake, Astragalus, Ginger, Turmeric, Cinnamon & Fenugreek) and Manuka honey (antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial) to boost taste morale.   

To reduce sugar intake even more, the honey could be reduced further or replaced with stevia or monkfruit. 

Preparation Time: 20 - 30 mins

Cooking Time: freeze for 2 -3 hours

Serves: ~10-15 slices
