4 reasons to drink ginger juice

While on holidays in Senegal in 2014 I discovered ginger juice, loved it and brought the recipe home with me.

This juice really gives me a great boost in the morning, kind of like a  coffee (at least for me) and it is very good for your health, that’s why I am using it more and always have some in my kitchen. 

 

  • GINGER HEALTH BENEFITS:
  1. It helps with digestion.
  2. It helps with pregnancy nausea
  3. It stimulates your immune system.
  4. It helps your sleep if you drink a glass at the end of the day.



The ingredients:

-50 g of ginger

-500 ml of water

-2 table spoons of honey or sugar

-A few fresh mint leaves (optional)

 



The recipe:

-Peel the ginger and cut into small pieces.

-Pulse the ginger with the water and mint in a blender or food processor.

-Filter with a sieve.

-Add the honey and stir.

If ginger juice alone is too strong for you, try diluting it with some orange or pineaple juice for a nice and tasty mixed juice.

You can also remove the sugar or honey if you like it; personally I like my ginger juice with no sugar and only mint leaves.

 

For those who have a juicer at home, you can also blend the ginger in it to get pure and strong ginger juice that will have to be diluted into water.
