The ingredients in this detox tea have been reported to possess a whole list of powerful health benefits, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, lymph system cleanser, liver health support – and it should also be of benefit to anyone suffering from a cold or flu.
It’s actually pretty simple… The recipe calls for Ginger, turmeric, cayenne, lemons and perhaps a little vanilla Stevia for sweetness.
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- 2 inch knob of ginger
- 2-3 inch piece of turmeric root or substitute 2 tsp turmeric powder
- 1-2 dashes of cayenne (or you could juice 1/2 a habanero or jalapeño pepper)
- 4 lemons (3 for juicing and 1 for slicing as a garnish)
- 3 droppers vanilla stevia
- 2 quarts water
In a juicer, juice your ginger root, turmeric, and 3 lemons.
In a large pitcher add your juice to about 2 quarts of water, a couple droppers of vanilla stevia to taste, a couple dashes of cayenne and your thinly cut lemon slices. Mix well with a wooden spoon and adjust flavors to taste. Let sit for about 10 mins before serving to let the flavors blend. Will last about 5 days in the fridge.
You can enjoy at room temperature or over ice. This detox tea is sweet, tangy and very spicy! Be ready, it’s got some serious kick!
If you can’t find fresh turmeric root or ginger root at your local health food store or Asian Market, you can purchase them in powder form through iherb.com.
