This episode of The Edgy Veg, at the request of many users, Candice reveals her secret recipe for amazing Ginger Turmeric shots made using a Centrifugal Juicer and a variety of fruits, ginger, and turmeric.
The ingredients used to created the Ginger Shot concoction are known for having many desirable properties. Not only are they full of antioxidants but also a variety of much need vitamins. Taking a ginger shot in the morning is a great way to supercharge your day.
The first step is to get out your juicer. As many of you know there are several types of juicers, Candice prefers the centrifugal juicer because it’s extremely fast and much easier to clean than most other types of juicers. When you’ve got your juicer cleaned and ready to go you will juice all of your apples, she uses two in her video, you will also juice all of your ginger. You will literally just put them into the juicer whole and really put some weight behind it. She actually goes so far as to recommend using a stool and getting your elbows in there. Regardless of your method just get those apples and ginger juiced.
Once you have your ginger and apple juice made set it aside and move on to the next phase. Juice one entire lemon, but not with your juicer, use a stand alone standard fruit juicer. You can see the one Candice uses in the video. Her juicer is made of metal but the plastic ones will work fine as well. When you’re done with the lemon repeat the same process with your oranges. Candice uses two big handfuls of ginger, 2 apples, and 3 to 4 oranges to make her ginger shots. You can modify this combination however you see fit, each person has their own take on what makes a good ginger shot, don’t be afraid to get creative with this recipe. For that matter don’t be afraid to experiment with any of the recipes on her channel.
Once you have your oranges juiced you will run them through a sieve to get rid of the pulp. Chunks in your ginger shots are really not what you’re aiming for. The purpose of the oranges in this ginger shot recipe is to offset spicy ginger flavor. Ginger is actually quite strong and the oranges provide a much needed flavor to keep the entire shot well balanced.
Now that you have all your juice put it into one single decent sized bottle with an airtight lid. Candice does with a funnel and there is no question that would be the easiest possible way to get all the juice in there. Now it’s time to add your spices. Simply add a fair amount of turmeric to your bottle and shake it all up. You can see from the video how much turmeric Candice uses, but again feel free to add the amount you feel will give you the best flavor.
Now you have an entire bottle of delicious, healthy, ginger shots just waiting to be poured out into little shot glasses. Take one every morning when you wake up and find out what makes these ginger shots so special.
