- Ginger is healthy and is considered to be pain reliever and anti-inflammatory
- The tuber is a real immune booster
- Simple recipe to make ginger shots yourself
Pain-relieving, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory – also rich in potassium, phosphorus and vitamin C! Do you need more arguments for the small, yellow immune booster? In any case, we are convinced and prefer to drink the vitamin bomb in the morning as a healthy coffee substitute. And the best thing is: You can easily make ginger shots yourself – in the supermarket, a sip sometimes costs up to five euros … here’s the recipe!
Recipe for fresh homemade ginger shots (approx. 450 ml):
- 100 g ginger
- 2 lemons
- 100 ml naturally cloudy apple juice
- 50 ml agave syrup or honey
- optional: 1 teaspoon turmeric, 1 teaspoon cinnamon or a pinch of cayenne pepper
- Peel the ginger for the ginger shots and cut into large cubes.
- Squeeze the lemons.
- Puree all ingredients in a blender until a liquid juice is formed.
- If the ginger pieces get in the way in the juice, you can pour it through a fine sieve again.
- Otherwise, the ginger shot can be filled directly into a clean bottle and stored in the refrigerator.
Attention, as delicious as the ginger shot tastes: It is recommended not to drink more than one shot glass (4 cl) a day so that there are no intolerances.
Since the juice is not boiled down, it can only be kept in the refrigerator for a few days. If you would like to give the pretty, yellow bottle as a gift, you should either freeze the juice in portions or boil it again after preparation to extend the shelf life.
