Immunity Boosting Citrus Juice with Turmeric and Ginger
Delicious citrus juice with turmeric root, ginger root and honey that is a great immunity booster.
Servings 4 cups
- 2 cups orange juice freshly squeezed preferred
- 1 apple cored and sliced
- 2 inch turmeric root peeled and roughly sliced
- 1 inch ginger scrubbed and roughly sliced
- 1 lemon juiced
- 2 tablespoon honey
- 1 cup ice
Use a high powered blender like the Vitamix or Blendtec, so there is no need to strain anything.
You can add a pinch of black pepper to this at the end, as the black pepper helps the curcumin in the turmeric to absorb better.
You can add celery, greens or any other fruit or vegetable to this as well.
If fresh turmeric root is hard to find, use good quality organic turmeric powder.
I would use fresh ginger for this and not ground ginger or skip it, if you don't have it.
