  • 1/4 Lime/lemon

  • 1 Knob of Fresh Root Ginger
  • 1 Knob of Fresh Turmeric
  • 1 tsp Turmeric powder
  • Pepper to taste

Method:

Add all of the ingredients apart from the coconut water and pepper into a blender and blitz together. We used our juicer and threw the oranges and lime in with the skin on, this can give the drink a bitter taste.

Turmeric is a natural dye, so be prepared for all of your equipment and hands to be yellow/orange after.

Add as much coconut water that you want, depending on the consistency of the drink you want. Add some pepper to taste. Stir together.

Enjoy! It’s as simple as that!
