I usually pick up my ginger root from Sprouts of Smart and Final for the best deal. You can use organic or regular.
Turmeric root can also be found at your local Sprouts, Ralphs or Smart and Final. I’m sure Whole Food’s carries it too!
Lemons pair nicely with the ginger, you can use organic or regular.
Oranges help add a bit of natural sweetness.
Optional to add in a dash of black pepper, this helps activate the turmeric so your body can better absorb the benefits, however, it’s not totally necessary.
how to make
ONE: In a juicer, add in the ginger root, turmeric root, lemons and oranges. Depending on your juicer, you may or may not have to peel the skin first from the lemons and oranges. I personally leave them on.
TWO: My juicer tends to leave some skin in the juice, so I strain it using a simple strainer. You can also use a cheese cloth.
THREE: Then, store the shots in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy within 4-5 days.
Benefits of turmeric and ginger shots
Ginger is an amazing ingredient that contains many benefits. It’s especially welcomed during the cold season, but it can be used year round to help build your immunity and improve digestion. Along with many other benefits that you can read about here.
Turmeric is a bright yellow/orange spice that is common in Indian cuisine. It has anti-inflammatory properties and when combined with black pepper it helps your body absorb more of the benefits!
Lemons are a great source of Vitamin C and can help keep you regular. They are naturally detoxifying to the body and taste amazing when combined with ginger.
Oranges are also a great source of Vitamin C and can help boost your immune system!
Tips and tricks
Depending on your juicer, you may or may not have to peel the oranges and lemon’s first before juicing.
When you’re done juicing, strain the juice to remove any skin that was left behind.
Using a blender instead of a juicer
If you don’t have a juicer, don’t worry. You can still make this recipe. Simply peel and juice the lemons and oranges and add them in a blender along with the turmeric and ginger root. Blend until smooth and creamy and then strain.
How to serve and store
Serve these shots with a pinch of black pepper. This will help your body absorb the turmeric up to 2,000% more. It’s not necessary, but it’s highly recommended!
Store these shots in an airtight container such as this one, and enjoy within 4-5 days.
Taste and Texture
These shots taste strong, tart and powerful, but not overwhelming. Shoot it back and chase it down with some water if needed.
The texture is smooth like cold pressed juice.
