Barley Honey Water

Barley Honey Water

Barley is always one of my favourite drink. It loaded with lots of vitamins and are high in fibre. Barley is often used to treat edema and helps with detoxification according to Chinese medical. Adding honey into your barley drink helps to boost your immune system too.

This Barley Honey water is very simple to make. It taste good to serve either warm or cold depending on how you like it. Just remember to let the drink cool down before adding honey in it. You can also serve this drink by adding a slice of lemon, it is optional but highly recommended.

You can use the leftover cooked barley to for salad or cook with other ingredients. I have made Bake Cheesy Barley Balls for my children using this leftover barley. If you want to find out more, simply click on the link > Bake Cheesy Barley Balls
