Ginger Turmeric Immunity-boosting Shot

Immunity-boosting shots are all the rage right now! They are a great way of getting the antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that you need to give your health a boost, and they are super easy to make. They are, however, quite pricey and with the cold and flu season upon us, there isn’t a better time to learn how to make your own at home.

Ginger Turmeric Immunity-boosting Shot

(makes up to 8 servings)


  • 1 fresh, unpeeled ginger root (medium to large size), chopped
  • 2 oranges, chopped with rind included
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • ½ turmeric
  • A pinch of black pepper
  • 2 cups of filtered water


  • A blender


  1. Add all the ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth
  2. Using a fine-mesh sieve with a bowl underneath, pour the juice through the sieve to separate the pulp from the juice.
  3. Transfer the juice from the bowl to a sealable jar or bottle. Store in the fridge for up to four days and enjoy the shots as you please (we recommend one 50-60ml shot a day.)


  1. Turmeric stains EVERYTHING except teeth. Make sure to keep a cloth or paper towel close to immediately clean up any spilled juice.
  2. Save the leftover pulp and add it to other juices for an added flavour.
