Turmeric-ginger Energy Shots

Healthy turmeric-ginger energy shots that can be taken daily for it’s health benefits. Including anti-inflammatory properties and digestive aid. Plus, it takes just 4 ingredients and 15 minutes of your time!

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 energised when I drink this in the morning.

Makes:  ~1/2 litres

Preparing Time:  ~10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 120 g turmeric
  • 140 g ginger
  • 2 large lemons
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

 

Directions

1. 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.

2. Squeeze the lemon either by hand or using a citrus press. Add the lemon juice into the bowl.

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

4. 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.

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

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

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

  1. Love all your DIYs! Thank you so much for all the tutorials. Quick question, how long can they last in the fridge?

    • Hi Arushi,
      Thank you so much!
      In the fridge, they last 7-10 days. If you freeze them, they can last a couple of month. You can use big ice cube trays so then you can easily de-freeze one or two cubes.

  2. Hi! I watch and love all your DIY’s! I have a question, where do you buy the bag you use all the time and the tiny shot glasses? Thank you! :-))

  3. What is the turmeric and why you use different ingredient than the one u did by juice maker

    • Hi Amira,

      Turmeric is another ingredient that is really good for health. I try to vary the shots each week. There will be more energy shots DIYs coming up. 🙂

  4. Hi! I love these, but where can I find the small glass bottles?
    Thanks!!

  5. How long do I have to take this ? As in the frequency of taking this ?

    • Hi Indra,

      You can take the energy shots when you feel like you need a little boost. I try to vary the ingredients each week so I can take advantage of their different nutrients. :))

  6. Hello!! I was wondering what to you do with the fiber that stays in the bag after you squeeze all juices out? Thank you!
    Ps: Oh! And where do you get the little containers????

    • There’s a little section of ‘recommended products’ in the recipe that includes a link to the little shot jars I use. Also, in terms of the fiber – you can freeze this in an ice-cube tray and use 1-2 ice cubes in smoothies. Alternatively, it can be composted too.

  7. Tumeric ginger shots are so good for your overall health.

  8. Will it produce the same amount of liquid if you use a juicer?

  9. Hi
    I’d like to try this but cannot get fresh turmeric. Can I use powdered turmeric.
    Thank you.

    • Alpha Foodie

      Hey, I always prefer to use fresh but I think around a tsp of dried turmeric powder would work for this recipe:)

  10. I really love this recipe. I have been making these for 2 weeks now and really enjoy them first thing in the morning. Thank you!

    • Hello,
      I would like to ask if there is anything that I can do with the remaining pulp.

      Thanks for the great idea!

      • The pulp can be frozen in an ice-cube tray and added to smoothies. I only use 1 ice-cube per smoothie usually so it’s not too fibrous. It can also be composted 🙂

  11. Hi! I love this shot. I tried it using a regular juicer. If I use the blender method, is it absolutely necessary to strain it? Would it be too unpalatable if I don’t?

    • Honestly, I haven’t tried it without straining when using a blender as I never manage to get all of the peel off the ginger and turmeric and don’t want to swallow that. I imagine it being ore bitter too. If you give it a go though, let me know what you thought!

    I did it and it’s very good, but I have a problem how can I remove the turmeric color from my hand and my food processor

    • Uh-oh! I always suggest wearing gloves when handling turmeric. Luckily, I haven’t ever had the issue where it has stained my food processor, so I can’t 100% say how to get rid of the staining. However, I do keep a straining bag specifically for these shots though, as it will permanently be dyed yellow and try to just be careful with the juice and what it touches.
