I swear by this recipe. I make it whenever I feel a head-cold coming on, and I almost always start to feel better right afterwards. Hope this helps someone else, as well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Microwave the milk in a mug until piping hot, or about 1 minute 30 seconds.
  2. Stir in the honey completely, so that no honey is left sitting on the bottom and the milk turns a golden color. I use the measuring spoon to stir the honey in the milk.
  3. Drink hot.

Yummy! I didn't have a cold, but it was a cold rainy spring morning when I decided to try this out. I did use skim and honey made locally. It was very relaxing and I enjoyed the drink while snuggling on the couch with my dog listening to the rain. Thanks for posting.
