The many nutritional benefits of turmeric and ginger are well known. This recipe was one shared in our recent Ayurvedic Cooking workshop facilitated by our dear friend and colleague Kamlesh Tukrel. Simple to make and delicious.
11/2 cups unsweetened coconut water or filtered water.
2 two inch knobs fresh turmeric, scraped and sliced
1 inch fresh ginger root, scraped and sliced
Juice of 1 lemon
Freshly ground pepper
Place all ingredients in a blender and process for 1 minute.
Place a fine strainer over a measuring cup and strain mixture. Press down fibres with the back of a spoon. Discard the fibres.
Store in a covered glass jar in the fridge and enjoy 1-2 shots daily (shake before using).
Makes 8 servings.
Fresh turmeric can be found in most grocery and health food stores. Be careful as it will stain fingers, nails, counters, clothing and cutting boards.
