Turmeric Ginger Energy Shots in small bottles

I regularly make these energy shots to stay healthy. Turmeric and ginger both have great health benefits. They are anti-inflammatory and relieve cold and flu symptoms. Ginger supports overall digestion and curcumin, which is the main ingredient of turmeric, supports the immune system. I always feel energized when I drink this in the morning.

Turmeric Ginger Energy Shot Ingredients

  • 120 g turmeric
  • 140 g ginger
  • 2 large lemons
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Turmeric and ginger roots with two whole lemons with a leaf and a small bowl with black pepper laying on a flat gray surface

How to Make Turmeric Ginger Energy Shots

Peel the ginger and turmeric using a spoon. Attention: the turmeric will badly stain your hands and utensils! I recommend using gloves. Once peeled, add them to a bowl.

Squeeze the lemon either by hand or using a citrus press (more tips here). Add the lemon juice to the bowl.

Add to your blender or food processor and blend till smooth. If the paste is too thick, add a little more lemon juice or water.

Carefully pour the blended mixture into a nut milk bag, over a bowl. Attention: your nut milk bag will become yellow. It can just become your dedicated turmeric shorts bag.

Squeeze out all the liquid. I got about 1/2 liter of fresh turmeric-ginger-lemon juice.

Store in a glass container. If you have little glass vials of around 50 ml, one would be your daily dose.

Refrigerate and consume within 7-10 days. To keep them longer, you can add them to ice cube trays and freeze them.

    It is necessary to peel the skins off if using a Vitamix?

    1. Support @ Alphafoodie says:

      Hi Michelle,
      If the skin is tender and not too thick, it’s not necessary. The skin of both turmeric and ginger is edible. Make sure to wash and brush them well first.

  2. Sara Devins says:

    Is it okay to not strain the ginger shots and just leave all the pulp in there? I keep thinking that maybe that is even good.

    1. Support @ Alphafoodie says:

      Hi Sara,
      It’s OK if you don’t mind the pulp in the juice. 🙂

  3. Lila says:

    is it ok to have ginger, garlic, turmeric, lemon juice and black pepper shot every day?

    1. Support @ Alphafoodie says:

      Hi Lila,
      While these ingredients may provide potential health advantages, make sure to consume them in a balanced manner and be aware of any individual reactions. If you have any concerns , it’s best to seek guidance from a healthcare professional. I hope this helps.

  4. Terry Marks says:

    Are there any alternatives to nut milk bags?

    1. Support @ Alphafoodie says:

      Hi Terry,
      You can use a fine mesh sieve, a cheesecloth, muslin cloth (a couple of layers might be needed), cotton handkerchief, or even a clean cotton kitchen towel or pillow case (an old one that you wouldn’t need any longer as it will get stained). You can also try using a coffee filter but passing the juices through it will probably be very slow. I hope this helps.

    Thank you for this recipe.
    I used to peel the ginger and turmeric.
    On one of the blogs, they indicated that once you wash the turmeric and ginger, drop everything, including the skin, into a blender. Once you squeeze out the liquid in the nut bag, the skin etc. will remain in the bag.

    1. Support @ Alphafoodie says:

      Hi Bard,
      Indeed, after you wash/brush well the turmeric and ginger, it’s not necessary to peel them.

  6. Rosetta says:

    Could you use tumeric powder instead of fresh?

    1. Support @ Alphafoodie says:

      Hi Rosetta,
      While it’s best to use fresh turmeric, you can indeed use powder. You can use 1/2 tsp of turmeric powder per shot. I hope this helps.

  7. Tylar says:

    Is it possible to use powdered turmeric and ginger instead of fresh?

    1. Support @ Alphafoodie says:

      Hi Tyler,
      It’s best to use fresh turmeric and fresh ginger if you can. When using powdered turmeric and powdered ginger, use 1/2 tsp of each per shot. I hope this helps.
