Ginger and Tumeric are staples when reducing inflammation and supporting the immune system. This is so easy and it beats paying the $5 to $8 the health food stores are charging!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups coconut water (use any water...just make the darn thing, right?)
  • 2 inch knob fresh turmeric (1 oz weighed) OR 1/2 - 1 teaspoon dried turmeric
  • 1 inch fresh ginger root (about 1/2 oz weighed)
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • pinch of cayenne
  • pinch of sea salt
  • pinch of black pepper (optional)

Instructions

1

Place coconut water, turmeric and ginger root in a blender and give it a whir.

2

When the turmeric/ginger is finely shredded, strain the liquid through a fine mesh sieve into a jar.

3

Add lemon juice, sea salt, pepper, cayenne and honey to taste. Serve, preferably with a food containing healthy fats and black pepper for enhanced absorption.

HOW TO OPTIMIZE TURMERIC ABSORPTION (from the author of original recipe)

  • The active compound in turmeric – curcumin – is fat soluble, so drink this in the morning with fried eggs or something similar, as it is best absorbed when taken with fat
  • Also, adding “black pepper to turmeric or turmeric-spiced food enhances curcumin’s bioavailability by 1,000 times. This is due to black pepper’s hot property called a pipeline.
