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:
- It helps with digestion.
- It helps with pregnancy nausea
- It stimulates your immune system.
- It helps your sleep if you drink a glass at the end of the day.
-50 g of ginger
-500 ml of water
-2 table spoons of honey or sugar
-A few fresh mint leaves (optional)
-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.
