Have you ever tried one of those ginger shots that you see at Whole Foods, Sprouts, Mother’s Market, etc.?

They are SO yummy, but they run you $2-$3 per shot, which is insane!

I decided I wanted to make them at home and save some serious money, while having them whenever I want.

I take a ginger shot every morning before I do anything else, it’s a healthy and refreshing way to start the day and the health benefits are numerous.

The ginger has anti-inflammatory properties, can help with the fat burning process, and aids in digestion. The lemon contains vitamin C to support the immune system and is actually an alkaline food (most people assume it is acidic). I also add a bit of turmeric to mine, which has anti-inflammatory properties as well as antioxidants that can help to fight against cancer.

Check out the recipe below to make your own ginger shots!

Homemade Ginger Shot Recipe

  • juice of 5-6 large lemons
  • 2-4″ ginger root, depending on how strong you want to make it
  • 1/2 cup filtered water
  • 1/2 tsp dry turmeric (can also use fresh)

Blend together in blender or food processor and store in the fridge for up to 7 days. I pour mine into a shot glass every morning and take it that way.
