Turmeric Anti-Inflammation Drink
With its bright color, dynamic blend of flavors and energizing botanicals, this turmeric drink can serve as a therapeutic tonic or a post-workout recovery drink.
This recipe comes from alumna Maribeth Evezich, MSN ('06), RD, CDN, who blogs at Wholefoodsexplorer.com. She writes about turmeric's health properties:
This recipe works with or without a juicer and with either fresh or powdered turmeric. A blender can also be used to process the roots with a small amount of the filtered or coconut water.
- Combine all the ingredients in a sealable, BPA-free 750 ml (at least 3 cups) container, such as a Nalgene bottle.
- Add more filtered water or coconut water (including the optional coconut milk) to the top and refrigerate overnight.
- When ready to drink, strain and serve over ice.
Turmeric should be used with caution by individuals with gallstones, clotting disorders, with congestive heart failure as well as women trying to become pregnant. Turmeric should be avoided before surgery and during pregnancy.
