Have you ever tried one of those ginger shots that you see at Whole Foods, Sprouts, Mother’s Market, etc.?
They are SO yummy, but they run you $2-$3 per shot, which is insane!
I decided I wanted to make them at home and save some serious money, while having them whenever I want.
I take a ginger shot every morning before I do anything else, it’s a healthy and refreshing way to start the day and the health benefits are numerous.
The ginger has anti-inflammatory properties, can help with the fat burning process, and aids in digestion. The lemon contains vitamin C to support the immune system and is actually an alkaline food (most people assume it is acidic). I also add a bit of turmeric to mine, which has anti-inflammatory properties as well as antioxidants that can help to fight against cancer.
Check out the recipe below to make your own ginger shots!
HOMEMADE GINGER SHOTS
- juice of 5-6 large lemons
- 2-4″ ginger root, depending on how strong you want to make it
- 1/2 cup filtered water
- 1/2 tsp dry turmeric (can also use fresh)
Blend together in blender or food processor and store in the fridge for up to 7 days. I pour mine into a shot glass every morning and take it that way.
