Miracle Slushie Sore Throat Remedy
Have you ever had a sore throat that hurt so bad you found it unbearable to swallow, chew, drink, talk, or even sleep?
Aye. If you’re there right now, I do feel your pain, and I’m sorry you’re in it. That very pain is what led me to create this slushie recipe a few years ago.
I tried to ride mine out, but after 3 days, I went to my doctor and requested a rapid strep test.
After all, strep throat seemed like the only justifiable reason for my sore throat pain.
Turned out, I didn’t have strep, and couldn’t believe a person could experience so much pain and NOT have strep throat.
Didn’t matter, I just wanted to know how to ease the pain because it seemed like everything I tried made me feel like I was eating glass. Gahhhh!
I tried the usual sore throat remedies:
~ gargling warm water with a teaspoon of salt
~ throat sprays that numb
~ throat lozenge
~ warm honey lemon water
~ licorice root tea
~ warm soup
~ steam shower
~ stay hydrated
Every single remedy either intensified my pain, or simply didn’t phase it.
So, how do you get rid of a sore throat quickly?
Enter the Miracle Slushie Sore Throat Remedy!
After 3 days of pain and trying to figure out how to relieve my sore throat, I took it into the kitchen.
I busted out my blender, some ice, and a couple anti-inflammatory ingredients that we ALL probably have laying around.
I whipped up this icy beverage that immediately soothed my sore throat pain and brought it to a tolerable level…enough that I could swallow food and become hydrated again.
While the beverage didn’t completely get rid of my sore throat, it numbed my tonsils and allowed me to conduct daily activities.
A piece of ice might have done the same, but I’m a firm believer in the anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties of ginger, honey, and lemon.
Best natural home remedy for sore throat evrrrrrrr!
So, how do you make slushie drinks for sore throat:
1. Break out your high speed blender (my personal fav is Nutribullet 900).
2. Add ingredients (see full recipe below).
3. Blend, baby blend…until it turns into a slushie.
Then consume with a straw or spoon, and feel the relief.
It’s like dumping ice water on hot coals. [Sorry for the detail but it’s true!]
Ingredients for Miracle Slushie Sore Throat Remedy:
- honey (or maple syrup)

Tools needed for this recipe:

- microplane grater (for ginger)

The slushie eased my sore throat pain:
~ Allowed me to consume ginger, honey, and lemon, three ingredients known for health benefits with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
~ Numbed and soothed my tonsils and reduced my sore throat pain to a tolerable level.
~ Relieved the pain of swallowing so I could drink water and stay rehydrate.

Beyond sore throat home remedies
Kids love the Miracle Slushie sore throat remedy as a slushie, especially during the summer months!
I have tested this slushie recipe on the 8 and 10 year old neighbor kids multiple times.
We were not in search of sore throat relief, it was simply a warm, summer day and we wanted a chilly, healthy, beverage.
They sucked down the final test slushie and gave it two thumbs wayyy up! [Full recipe listed below].
To me, any time the littles will consume any food or drink that’s absent of crazy colors and targeted marketing messages…well, this is a small miracle in itself, amiright?
And my guess is…if they love it even when they don’t need sore throat relief, maybe they’ll love it when they really do need it.
