A Zesty Healer

For those of you who are parents you will know that as one falls ill the dominos tumble down upon all, well it doesn’t have to be that way and of course it’s not, but when it does happen it’s great to have a little champion like the Zesty Healer in your corner who can help bring all the troops back to great health.

There are many useful tools one can use to embrace the common cold, however none pack a punch like the Zesty Healer, ok that’s not entirely true either, but it definitely boosts your immune system.

Please note that this drink is less about taste and more about healing and whilst taste can indeed help heal a person it is not a requirement of this concoction and yet you can take the edge of it by adding more apples or cucumber should you wish.

The curious thing about this healing elixir is this, it is only really palatable when one is not well, my son who is 5 years old and daughter who is 9 months old both have drunk this mix and it’s had its desired effect, however when well it gets rejected.


  • 1 Grapefruit 
  • 4 oranges
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 apple
  • 1/3 cucumber
  • 1 carrot
  • An inch or so of fresh ginger
  • A little less of fresh turmeric root


All the ingredients simply go through a juicer, I personally use a Hurom Slow Juicer. One note remember to take the skin of the oranges and grapefruit and I used unwaxed lemons which meant I could keep the skin on them, everything else cut to size if needed and send it on through. Enjoy.

To you all in great health
