Servings 4 servings
- 5 cups water
- 2 cups peeled + chopped ginger root
- 2 carrots, peeled + chopped
- 1 medium navel orange, peeled + chopped
- 1 medium grapefruit, peeled + chopped
- 1 freshly-squeezed lemon
- 1/2 cup Agave syrup (See Notes!)
- 2 tsps turmeric powder
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
Add all ingredients into a high-powered blender and blend on high speed until smooth and almost slightly 'foamy', about 2-3 minutes.
Add in the sweetener (Agave) and blend for another 30 seconds.
Once done, slowly pour + strain juice into a pitcher, squeezing the pulp against the strainer to ensure that all juices are extracted. NOTE: If preferred, you can skip this step and leave pulp in.
To serve—add juice to prepared glass(es) and garnish, if desired. NOTE: If preferred, you can let the juice chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours before serving as well.
Sip and enjoy!
STORAGE:Leftovers can be stored tightly sealed in a pitcher with plastic wrap over it or in a sealed mason jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Be sure to stir before serving.
ADDITIONAL BOOST:To add a boost to make this drink more powerful, you can add cayenne pepper, or apple cider vinegar to the mix (1 tsp of either)!
SWEETNESS: Add more maple syrup (if you choose this option) or Agave for more sweetness if needed, 1 Tbsp at a time.
