A Simple Ginger-Turmeric Shot
Here is how to make a simple ginger-turmeric shot that can be stored for four days in your fridge. It is nice and strong, and you only need a small glass. I drink it in the morning but anytime will be fine. Ginger is known for reducing stomach problems such as nausea. Turmeric is fat-soluble so eat a little fat when you have the shot, like nuts or cheese or butter on crispbread.
If you use organic turmeric and ginger, you just have to wash the roots, but if they are traditionally grown you have to peel them. In the picture below is peeled ginger and turmeric untreated.
How To Make A Ginger-Turmeric Shot
Makes around 500 ml
75 g fresh ginger
25 g fresh turmeric
Clean or peel them
400-450 ml cold water
Lemon zest from half a lemon
2-3 drops Stevia if you need sweetening (I don’t use it, but you could)
Cut the ginger and the turmeric into small pieces and put it all in the blender together with the water and the lemon zest. Blend for 25-30 seconds. Pour the liquid trough a sieve, and press it to strain it from the pulp. Throw the pulp away. There is a lot of liquid in the pulp so be sure to press it thoroughly with a spoon.
Pour the liquid into a clean air-tight bottle and store it in your fridge. Enjoy!
Remember to shake the bottle before next serving!
