Ingredients

  • 4 oz Turmeric (*Note 1)
  • 4 oz Ginger
  • 2 Large Lemons, Peeled
  • 1/8 tsp Ground Black Pepper

Instructions

  • Wash the turmeric and ginger with a vegetable brush or toothbrush.
  • Juice the ginger and turmeric. (*Note 2)
  • Remove the skin from the lemons and juice via the juicer.
  • Add the black pepper directly to the juice and manually stir to combine.
  • This recipe makes two shots - divide the juice into two servings and store in airtight containers in the refrigerator. Remove from the refrigerator immediately before you're ready to enjoy. (*Note 3)

Notes

Note 1 - Turmeric will discolor anything it touches, including your hands. We keep a wet nap nearby to immediately clean up spilled turmeric juice. 
Note 2- Dry the leftover pulp and add it to other juices or smoothies for an added flavor and health boost. 
Note 3- The recommended daily dose is 60-80 ml. I purchased these 2 oz. glass bottles that holds slightly shy of 60 ml. You can select a larger size if you prefer more in each dose.
