โ€œTurmeric Shotโ€

Lately Iโ€™ve been gravitating to any which way of getting more anti-inflammatory goodness (hence all my recipes containing turmeric #sorrynotsorry ๐Ÿ™ˆ). This week, call me Turmeric crazy but Iโ€™m sharing a turmeric shot recipe that Iโ€™ve been having on the daily! This is kinda like my โ€œhard core liquorโ€ ๐Ÿ˜ being much stronger than my other turmeric drink options it really packs a punch ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

Check out the elements that makes this one of my drinks of choice at the mo...

1. Turmeric - has crazy arse antioxidants and anti-Inflammatory properties.
2. Ginger - ditto
3. Apple Cider Vinegar - all of the above + it kills bad bacteria ๐Ÿฆ 
4. Pepper - helps boost the absorption of turmeric by 2000% percent...what the actual hell ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
5. Lemon & Orange (optional) - Naturally detoxifying and has loads of Vit C which as we know is Immune Boosting...who doesnโ€™t want that right now ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

This below recipe will make about 14 cups of drink making it enough for 1 week if you follow what I have been doing and have one first thing in the morning and one last thing at night.

NB - At bedtime have it after you brush your teeth and swish it around your mouth for good oral hygiene and to help whiten your teeth...yep crazy huh...how can something that stains my hands yellow actually whiten my teeth ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ but it really does ๐Ÿฆท

1. Peel 1 thumb fresh Turmeric + 1 thumb fresh ginger + 1/2 tsp black pepper and place in blender with two cups of water. Make sure you wear gloves when doing the turmeric - re use the same gloves numerous times and the planet will thank you for it ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
2. Blend for 15 seconds.
3. Pour into two large jars with an additional cup of water in each one.
4. Allow to sit for at least 6 hours then strain through a sieve getting rid of the access left in the sieve. Store in jars in the fridge for up to a week.
5. In the morning and at night pour about 1/4 cup into a mug with ACV, squeeze of 1/4 Lemon + 1/4 orange (optional). If you want to make it warm (which Iโ€™ve been doing as itโ€™s been so cold) I also add in 1/4 cup of boiling water.

Iโ€™ll pop pics in the comments so you can see exactly what Iโ€™m talkinโ€™ bout ๐Ÿ˜‰

Bottoms up yโ€™all โœŒ๐Ÿผ
