I was seriously dubious about this, I mean no-one loves a ginger shot more than me but a turmeric, lemon & ginger shot? I gingerly poured my Turmeric Lemon & Ginger Shot… gingerly – see what I did there… ok ok no stalling… lets do this… first a little sip. OK I’m pleasantly surprised, this is actually GOOD another sip REALLY GOOD. This is super immune system boosting and it actually tastes great, wow, I need to have this in the morning instead of a coffee and I will be running out that door and into whatever awaits shouting COME ON!
The colour tells you this is full of good energy and it is. Its liquid sunshine! A few sips and I’m ready to shoot the rest, down the hatch it goes. Wow, that feels and tastes great. I cant wait for another one tomorrow morning. Well worth the small amount of effort. You need this in your life especially through Winter for that extra immune system boost! Easy in your thermomix (or whichever blender you use) and better than an espresso to get you going! Make it once and you’re done for the week. What could be better than a ginger shot….?
A Turmeric Lemon & Ginger Shot!
I’ve adapted the recipe for thermomix users below but. The original recipe is here
Wellness Shot - Turmeric, Lemon & Ginger
Makes 3-4 shots, will keep for a week in the fridge
- 3 small lemons, juiced
- 2" ginger
- 2" turmeric root or 1 tbsp powdered
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper don't miss this out, you need it to absorb the turmeric
Blend everything in your thermomix for 1 minute gradually moving from speed 1 up to 10. (Or just use your regular blender to make everything into a liquid)
scrape down and repeat twice more
The juice should be quite smooth now but push through a strainer and you'll be surprised how much more liquid comes out. Should yield around 200ml or just under 1 cup. Just be warned, the yellow turmeric will stain everything including your fingers!
Pour and shoot. Chin chin!
Store the remainder in the fridge for the rest of the week.
