BEST Immunity Boost Juice to fight cold & flu

Whether you’re trying to avoid catching sick, or you’re trying to get over your sickness, this little drink will do the trick to fight away those bugs.

This Immunity Boost Juice is packed with ginger, turmeric, citrus fruits and tons of vit-c. So that you can get through your day without worrying about a measly cold getting in the way.

And bonus is that it actually tastes delicious! Certainly, it’s not a drag to drink to your health with this sweet juice.

In fact, it tastes a lot lot like those $8.49 fresh pressed juices we are victim to buying at the grocers. (You’ll save a lot of money making it at home).

I like to sip this Immunity Boost Juice in the morning when I wake up. It helps me fight off sickness, and be my best self all day long.

Now, let me tell you exactly how to make this Immunity Boost Juice so that you can fight off sickness ASAP.

Immunity Boost Drink Ginger and Turmeric Wellness Shot

Immunity Boost Juice Recipe:

This juice recipe is:

  • healthy
  • detoxifying
  • packed with immune boosting ingredients
  • spiced with ginger and turmeric
  • deliciously sweet and enjoyable!

This juice is so tasty you’d never know it was so healthy and wholesome. When I’m not indulging in a weekend mimosa, or a warming wellness latte like my Golden Turmeric Latte this is my healthy juice of choice!

And that’s because it’s a delicious juice that helps boost your immune system at the same time!

I like to drink this immunity boost juice whenever I feel a cold coming on in the winter months. It’s great for warding off cold and flu.

How to make Immunity Boost Juice

It’s so easy to make this immunity boost juice. I’ve done mine using my 3-in-1 Cuisinart food processor, using the juice setting.

What if I don’t have a juicer?

Don’t worry! If you don’t have a juicer, I explain how you can still make this recipe by hand in the recipe card below. (That’s right, you don’t even need a blender!).

A little bit about manuka honey and substitutes:

Manuka honey is world renowned for its antibacterial effects.  It’s antiviral, anti-inflammatory and packed with antioxidant. Plus, it really helps to soothe a sore throat when you feel a cold coming on.

You can learn more about the health benefits of manuka honey based on science here.

If you’re a hard lined vegan than you likely don’t eat honey. In this case you can remove the manuka honey altogether or substitute the honey for agave.

Personally, I like a little manuka honey when I’m feeling sick. I purchase my manuka honey on Amazon.

  1. Looks amazing, can’t wait to try. I don’t have fresh turmeric, could I substitute for turmeric powerder ? If so , how much would you recommend. thanks 🙂

  2. My 5 year old daughter has been copping multiple viruses since we caught Covid after Easter. I found it was a bit much on the turmeric/ginger side for us. I ended up adding a couple extra oranges to dilute it for her. I’m hoping it’ll kick start her immune system to finally get over these illnesses and prevent more from taking hold.

    • Hi Felicity! Sorry to hear that your daughter has been sick. Yes I can imagine that this juice might be a tad zingy for your LO, but it was a great idea to dilute with more oranges to make it appeal more to kids. 🙂

  3. I’ve been making this for me and my 4 year old Daughter for quite some time, especially since she goes to the Day Care and colds are very common there, so far she’s doing good.

  4. This is really delicious and all made in natural ingredients which will not cause any harm to our body but instead it will boost it. BSKIN

  5. Have been sick with the Corona for weeks just started drinking this didn’t trigger my nausea and is delicious !

    • Hi Kristen. I’m so sorry to hear that you caught covid! My husband and I also caught covid over the Holiday break and this immunity boost juice was a big help!

  6. Made this for my college daughter who came home for the holidays and she has been sick. She loved it abs asked if I would make it for her each day. She drank it all at once!

    • Oh my gosh this makes me so happy. Thank you for the kind message Justine! I hope your daughter is feeling better!

  7. I’ve been ordering Elderberry syrup and taking it for 2 years. No more. This will be my “go-to” when it starts getting cold. If I’m not taking it all year 😂 I love it!

  8. Great juice,
    I will try it warm (adding warm water to the juice and leaving all the ingredients outside of the fridge).

    I wouldn’t recommend to refrigerate it for longer than few hours, because part of the vitamins, phytonutrients , enzymes could be lost.

    • Hi Alessandra! I’m really glad that you enjoyed the juice. And I hope that you enjoy it warm!! 🙂

  9. This looks so beautiful and delicious, Hannah! I love these photos and it’s definitely a great way to get quick vitamins during winter! Lots of love, Bianca ❤️

    • Oh yes, it’s such a great way to fight of those colds. So glad you like the recipe Bianca!
