Rezept: Ingwer Shot selbst machen - Immunsystem stärken

Recipe: Make your own ginger shot - strengthen the immune system

Ginger has many health benefits - it boosts digestion and metabolism, fights infections, is antibacterial and helps strengthen the immune system. With this recipe, you can whip up a ginger turmeric lemon shot that is rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Ingredients: for a homemade ginger shot

The quantities given are enough for about 10 servings. The finished juice can be stored in the fridge for about a week. Optionally, it is also possible to prepare the mixture in larger quantities and then freeze it. For the preparation you need a stand mixer or blender, as well as the following ingredients:

  • 100 g (organic) ginger
  • 4 lemons
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp of any vegetable oil (e.g. linseed oil)
  • A pinch of pepper

Instructions: how to prepare ginger shots

If you are using organic ginger, it does not need to be peeled - because health-promoting ingredients can also be found in the peel. If the tuber is older or not of organic quality, we recommend removing the peel with the help of a teaspoon. This makes it easy to scrape off the woody skin. Then cut the ginger into small cubes.

  • Remove the peel from the lemon and roughly chop it. There is no need to squeeze it, because the white skin between the fruit and the peel contains just as much vitamin C as the flesh itself.

  • Now mix all the ingredients, puree finely and add water as needed to make the consistency more fluid. Since curcumin, the plant substance in turmeric, is fat-soluble, we recommend adding a small amount of any vegetable oil to get all the benefits of the tuber. Piperine is found in pepper and is needed to increase the bioavailability of curcumin - so it is better absorbed by the gut.

  • Finally, pour the finished ginger shot into a sealable, well-cleaned bottle and store in the fridge

    Recommended intake: How to boost your immune system

    To enjoy the benefits of the boosted metabolism, the immune booster should be drunk in the morning on an empty stomach. The ginger shot can be drunk pure or sprinkled on water. We recommend the latter, especially for children, to reduce the spiciness of the ginger. Optionally, more types of fruit (e.g. apple or orange) as well as natural sweeteners (e.g. honey) can be added - this gives the drink a natural sweetness
