Foodboost Recipes Page


Boosted orange juice is for those days when you wake up, and you’re just not right. You feel tired, a bit headachy, your throat feels scratchy – like you might be coming down with a cold.

This is the perfect time to help your body knock out those germs before they get a hold of you.


1 teaspoon of immune+ powder.

1⁄2 a teaspoon of fresh orange zest.

1⁄2 a teaspoon of finely zested ginger (optional – delicious zing – great for sore throats).

1⁄4 teaspoon of finely chopped chilli or dash of cayenne pepper (optional – great if you have a cold).

1-2 freshly squeezed organic oranges.

1-2 teaspoons of raw or Manuka honey.

hot water.


Put the kettle on.

Place the immune+, ginger, cayenne and orange zest into your favourite mug.

Pour a little bit of boiling water over the ingredients to release the flavours and stir.

Add the fresh orange juice.

Top up your mug with hot water.

Add honey.

Sip slowly.


Immune+ supports your immune system.

Raw honey is a natural antibiotic with broad antimicrobial activity. If you are vegan, use organic maple syrup.

Manuka honey contains non-hydrogen peroxide, which gives it even greater antibacterial power.

You can use half a teaspoon of organic turmeric powder with the immune+ for its anti-inflammatory properties.

The antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic properties, flavonoid and vitamin C content in orange zest add an extra boost of support for your immune system.

Makes sure you use oranges that are grown without the use of pesticides, so there is no toxic chemical residue contaminating the peel.

If fresh oranges aren’t available, buy organic orange juice, or you can use lemons.

If you are feeling nauseous, use apple juice – even better if it’s fresh juice.

Make sure you use organic apple juice. Most conventionally farmed apples are drenched in pesticides that even penetrate the peel – avoid them.

Take some time to rest if you can and sleep.

take care!
