An anti-inflammatory diet doesn’t mean giving up all the flavors you like. On the contrary, it can even be delicious!
If you’re trying to cultivate a healthy and balanced lifestyle, you’ve probably come up against all sorts of obstacles many times. Either you find vegetables boring after a while, or you run out of combinations of ingredients.
These ginger and tropical-flavored shots not only act as an effective medicine against inflammation in the body, but also give you energy for the whole day. In addition, you can surprise your guests with them at any summer party!
Recipe for ginger and tropical-flavored shots
You will need the following ingredients:
- 100 g fresh ginger root;
- 180 g fresh pineapple;
- 120 ml orange juice;
- 60 ml lime juice;
- 120 ml coconut water;
- A pinch of freshly ground cayenne pepper;
- 1 teaspoon of turmeric (optional);
How to make ginger shots:
Clean the ginger root and cut it into smaller pieces. Do the same with the pineapple. Then put all the ingredients in the blender and blend until you obtain a smooth liquid. Strain through a fine sieve to remove any fruit or ginger fiber. Transfer the juice into a sealable bottle and store in the fridge for up to a week.
Drink a serving in the morning, on an empty stomach, so that it absorbs into the body as efficiently as possible. If you wish, you can pour the juice into an ice cube tray or bag. This way, you can add them to fresh lemonades and enrich them with anti-inflammatory properties and a delicious and unique tropical taste.
Benefits of tropical ginger shots
Ginger, the star ingredient of the recipe, has powerful anti-inflammatory properties as well as antioxidants. All these substances help you to have a healthy digestion and prevent colds and flus. Besides, citrus juice also provides vitamin C, which helps you have a strong immune system and a youthful skin.
Last but not least, pineapple comes with a sweet, tropical flavor, but also a significant amount of vitamin C and bromelain – everything you need for good digestion and a strong body!
