Immune-Boosting Elderberry Syrup

This delicious elderberry syrup is bursting with nutrients and provides immune boosting benefits. 



  • 1 cup organic elderberries
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 organic cinnamon stick
  • 1 tsp organic ground ginger
  • 4 organic whole cloves {optional}
  • 1 cup of raw and unfiltered honey
  • Optional: 2 tsp medicinal mushrooms (Reishi, Chaga, Lion’s Mane, Cordyceps)


  1. In a medium-sized pot over medium-high heat, add the water, elderberries, cinnamon stick, ground ginger, and cloves. As soon as the mixture begins to boil, lower the heat to a simmer. Allow the mixture to simmer for 30 minutes, or until it reduces and thickens.
  2. Set the syrup aside and allow to cool. You don’t want to add the honey until it is cool, or else the beneficial enzymes found in the raw food will be eliminated. Once the mixture is cool, strain the solids and add 1 cup of the raw, unfiltered honey. Mix to combine.
  3. Optional: To enhance the immune-boosting properties, add in 2 tsp of medicinal mushrooms. Mix until well-combined.
  4. Store the syrup in a glass jar in the refrigerator for up to two months


Recommended use: Take 1 Tbsp daily through the winter months and as needed as a preventative measure. If you are currently sick, consume 1 Tbsp 3-4 times a day until you are feeling healthy again. Depending on your preference, you can drink the syrup straight, add it into smoothies, pour it into tea, or drink it mixed with fresh-pressed juice.
