Turmeric and Ginger Shot

We all know that the more nutritious food you can consume in a day the better. And drinking elixirs made from home juicing is one way you can get there!

As texture sensitive people we prefer to eat our food instead of drinking. But, if/when you somedays find it hard to reach a decent intake of fruits and veggies (the EAT-Lancet initiative which recently released its international “planetary health diet” recommends 500 grams fruits and veggies per day) then drinking a veggie shot can be a great way to add some of those important grams of fibre and get a boost in nutrients.

A combination of eating whole veggies and fruits + drinking smoothies + drinking shots as well as veggie juices is a great way to make sure you get all the nutrients your body wants.

If you like to make your own shots and veggie juice we can highly recommend to invest in a slow juicer. Both a slow juicer and a centrifugal juicer will give you nourishing juices, but a slow juicer is even more gentle to the produce you’re juicing. Furthermore using a slow juicer will preserve more of the nutrients and yield more juice.

Turmeric and Ginger Super Shot
(makes 1 bottle, about 750ml)

50 g organic fresh turmeric
250 g organic fresh ginger
2 organic carrots
2 organic lemons
2 organic oranges
5 dl / 2 US cups water
1 pinch of freshly ground black pepper

Wash and scrub the ginger and turmeric thoroughly. Scrub the carrots and peel the citrus fruits. Cut everything in smaller pieces and put in your slow juicer or centrifugal juicer.

Blend the golden juice with black pepper and water. Pour in a bottle and keep in the fridge, stays well for up to at least 7 days. Shake before serving.

Start with juicing the carrots and then save the fibers which are left when all the juice from the carrots is extracted. Add the carrot fibre to your next patties or carrot soup. They can be frozen until then!
