Drink to your health! Try a new routine in the new year. A fiery-hot ginger shot in the morning will wake you and your metabolism right up. This drink isn’t the newest hot trend for nothing: Just one shot has unbelievably many vitamins and nutrients that are especially important for your immune system in the colder months.

Preparation

  • Peel the ginger and cut into chunks.
  • Juice the oranges and lemons.
  • Add the juices, ginger chunks, water, and turmeric to a blender. Blend for at least 30 seconds or until well-blended.
  • If you want a smoother ginger shot, pour it through a sieve. If you like it with bits, leave this step out.
  • Add the chia seeds to the ginger shot and pour into a clean jar (e.g. mason jar).
  • Drink one ginger shot (about 40 ml) every morning. Store the jar in the fridge, where it will keep fresh for 5-7 days.
  • Enjoy!

Our Tip

The sky's the limit for your creativity when you make this ginger shot! Play around with different fruits and juices. We love it with apple juice, lime juice, pear juice, acerola juice, or cranberry juice. These are a great way to dial down the spice of the ginger. But if you like it hotter, try adding a pinch of ground pepper and cayenne to stimulate your circulation even more. Use a teaspoon to peel the ginger. It takes the skin off easily, plus it lets you get into all the nooks and crannies between the ginger's nobbles.
