Makes 2 servings:
1-2 large pieces of turmeric root peeled
1 1/2" piece ginger root (peeled if not organic)
1 large lemon
1 dash cayenne pepper per glass
1 sprinkle black pepper per glass
Juice the turmeric, ginger and lemon. Divide the shots into 2 glasses and add the cayenne pepper and black pepper separately - We guzzle this quickly!
If you don't have a juicer but have a high powered blender like a Vitamix, an alternative is to make a golden tea later in the afternoon. I combine 1 cup of unsweetened coconut milk with a 1" piece of turmeric and a 1/2 inch piece of ginger with a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon, 3 dates and a dash or cayenne and black pepper. Some people like to add a small amount of coconut oil too. Sometimes I do and sometimes I go without.
