Lemon Ginger Turmeric Wellness Shots

5-ingredient wellness shots with anti-inflammatory benefits, a mega-dose of vitamin C, and a delicate balance of flavours to create the ultimate juice to boost immunity!

Servings: 2


    • 1 small orange (add 1-2 more oranges for added sweetness / omit and add another lemon for less sweetness!)
    • 2 small lemons (add 1-2 more lemons for more acidity / reduce by half and add another orange for less acidity!)
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh turmeric (peeling optional) / for ground turmeric (powder), recommend 1/2 tsp per shot
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh ginger (peeling optional)
    • 1/8 tsp fresh black pepper
    • 1/4 tsp oil (such as extra virgin, optional / to help improve turmeric absorption)
    • JUICER: To a juicer, add orange, lemon, turmeric, and ginger (depending on the juicer, you may need to peel the orange and lemon.
    • BLENDER: Add turmeric and ginger to a high-speed blender or small blender.  Juice the orange & lemon first, then add the juice to blender (this helps the mixture blend easier, and removes the pulp/rind). Blend on high for 30 seconds.
  • Add a little water if it has trouble blending but you shouldn’t need any. Then strain through a clean thin dish towel, small fine mesh strainer, or nut milk bag. Just be aware that turmeric can stain.
  • FOR SERVING: Divide between serving glasses and enjoy! For maximum benefits, enjoy immediately and top with fresh cracked black pepper.  Adding a little fat to improve turmeric absorption, such as olive oil!
  • FOR STORING: Store any leftovers covered in the refrigerator up to 24 hours (though best when fresh).
  • LEFTOVER PULP: You can compost any leftover pulp or freeze into an ice cube try and add to future smoothies.
