  • Balanced Flavors – The sweetness from the orange juice is complemented by the slight kick from the ginger, and the addition of fresh turmeric adds a slightly earthy and bitter taste. It’s an energizing and harmonious blend that will excite your taste buds.
  • Healthy Breakfast Idea – These Wellness Shots will give you the energy to take on the day. We love enjoying them alongside a warm bowl of Bananas and Cream Oatmeal or Blueberry Toast.

Tips and Tricks for Making This Wellness Shot Recipe

  • Fresh turmeric can stain your hands and utensils, so we recommend wearing gloves.
  • If you can’t find fresh turmeric, you can use powdered turmeric. It won’t be as powerful as when fresh, but it will still have nutritional benefits. Substitute the fresh turmeric with 2 teaspoons of powdered turmeric in this recipe.
  • If you find the flavor of the turmeric and ginger to be too strong, you can add a touch of honey to sweeten it up.
  • A few more ingredients you can add for health benefits are a pinch of cayenne pepper or a hint of apple cider vinegar. Start with small amounts and adjust to your taste preferences.
  • Storage Tips: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days if you have leftovers, though it’s best to enjoy after making it fresh.
