Turmeric anti-inflammatory juice

If you tried and liked my ginger and carrot juice recipe, then there’s no doubt you’ll like this one too. This anti-inflammatory juice does absolute wonders when it comes to boosting your immune system and supporting your health – lord knows we need it around this time of year!

Each ingredient has its own unique benefit, but since the main one is turmeric, I’ll give you a quick outline of what it’ll do for you (if you do decide to give this recipe a try!).

Turmeric is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatories around. It’s known to have both anti-viral and anti-cancer properties. And while it can do a great job in reducing the inflammation levels in the body, it can also help with  inflammation in the skin and chronic problems such as acne.

Ideally, you’d want to use fresh turmeric.But if it’s not available to you, you could always use the powdered form too!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large piece turmeric (at least 4-5 inches)
  • 1 piece ginger (about 2-3 inches)
  • 5 carrots, cut in halves
  • 2 lemons, squeezed
  • 1 orange, squeezed
  • 1 cucumber
  • ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper powder

Directions with juicer:

  1. Put all the fruit and vegetables into a juicer and process until ready.
  2. At the end, add the cayenne pepper powder.
  3. If you can hack it, you could always throw in some ice and drink it right away!      

Directions without juicer:

  1. Peel the ginger and the turmeric.
  2. Put into a blender with the rest of the ingredients and add some water to facilitate the blending.
  3. Process the mixture until there are no hard pieces from the carrots etc.
  4. Use a sieve to pour the mixture into a large jar and put whatever is left in the sieve back into the blender.
  5. Repeat process until you have enough juice.
  6. Drink immediately or store in the fridge.

    I’m no professional when it comes to juicing. However,  I do feel that I’ve been juicing  for long enough to know that freshly made juice tastes better when consumed within 20 minutes, the juicing strainer can be an absolute pain to clean after using carrots, and some fruit and vegetables…
