Lemon Ginger Turmeric Wellness Shots
It's the season of illness and germs and all kinds of crummy things. While our general food intake is most important for nutrient absorption and immune-boosting power, it's a nice option to have a quick boost option.
5-ingredient wellness shots with anti-inflammatory benefits and a mega-dose of vitamin C to create the ultimate from scratch juice to boost immunity!
Servings: 2 (Shots)
1 small orange (add 1-2 more oranges for added sweetness / omit and add another lemon for less sweetness!)
2 small lemons (add 1-2 more lemons for more acidity / reduce by half and add another orange for less acidity!)
1/4 cup chopped fresh turmeric (peeling optional)
1/4 cup chopped fresh ginger (peeling optional)
1/8 tsp fresh black pepper
1/4 tsp oil (such as extra virgin, optional / to help improve turmeric absorption)
JUICER: To a juicer, add orange, lemon, turmeric, and ginger (depending on the juicer, you may need to peel the orange and lemon.
BLENDER: Add turmeric and ginger to a high-speed blender or small blender. Then add the juice of the orange and the lemons (this helps the mixture blend easier, and removes the pulp/rind). Blend on high for 30 seconds.
Add a little water if it has trouble blending but you shouldn't need any. Then strain through a clean thin dish towel, small fine mesh strainer, or nut milk bag. Just be aware that turmeric can stain.
FOR SERVING: Divide between serving glasses and enjoy! For maximum benefits, enjoy immediately and top with fresh cracked black pepper. I also recommend adding a little fat to improve turmeric absorption, such as olive oil!
FOR STORING: Store any leftovers covered in the refrigerator up to 24 hours (though best when fresh).
