Ginger Turmeric shot

Ginger turmeric shots

Turmeric (curcuma); that’s the way I smell nowadays. No: I don’t use a turmeric deodorant, body lotion or whatsoever. It is just the way I smell. I guess it’s the result of eating Indian food for over 3 months. Maybe it’s also the result of the ginger turmeric shots I have every now and then.

I don’t drink them daily, just once every two or three weeks. It’s a pretty strong shot, but I like it. I started doing ginger shots when I was working for 21st Sanctuary retreats earlier this year. We did a retreat in Morocco and started every morning with a ginger shot: apple, carrot and ginger. We had a pretty nice and fancy juicer there. Being on the road I travel with a little blender in my backpack. It’s a pretty good one, but as soon as I throw some carrots in, smoke is coming out of the blender. So carrots are no option. Apples are, ginger goes pretty easy and because I know turmeric is amazing, I decided to add turmeric to it and a bit of lime; making it an interesting shot.

The shots are not the reason that I smell like turmeric. Eating it almost everyday is. It is one of the main ingredients in Indian cooking. Mustard seeds, turmeric and cumin are used in a lot of dishes, because they aid in digestion. But turmeric does way more. The herb, made from the root of the Curcuma longa plant, is very well known in both the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine for its powerful anti-inflammatory qualities and is used to treat a wide variety of conditions: flatulence, menstrual difficulties, bloody urine, toothache, bruises, chest pain, skin disease and inflammatory bowel disease such as Crohn.

Not a bad herb, is it? You might have to get use to the shots, but give it a go.

Ingredients Ginger turmeric shots

  • 1 apple (for 1 shot)
  • 3 to 5 centimeters of ginger root (less if it’s too strong for you)
  • 1 spoon of turmeric (grounded)
  • 1 lime
  • water

Preparation Ginger turmeric shots

  • Peal the apple and the ginger
  • Cut the ginger and apple in pieces to make the job easier for your blender
  • Squeeze the lime
  • Put everything in the blender. Add as much water as you like. I prefer a thick shot and blend till smooth

Enjoy!
