ZINGY TURMERIC GINGER LEMONADE WITH MINT


Okay ya’ll, before I jump into this post, I want to share why I am reposting. One .. my husband just participated in his first bike race last weekend after retiring in 2015 from Triathlon!!  This is why I made those Tropical Bars, remember? But at the same time, he also got sick and overdid it the week before. LOL! Hence this Turmeric Ginger Lemonade with Mint. Soothing, healing, and all things anti-inflammatory. Yes I am on that kick along with Junk Free June.

If there’s two things endurance athletes try their hardest to avoid, it’s Chronic inflammation and Chronic Fatigue. Unfortunately, I think most athletes (pro and recreational) have had their bouts of both from time to time. It’s like the plague! My husband suffered from chronic fatigue in 2009 from over training and under resting. Yep, we learned the hard way, BUT… WE LEARNED early. Which is why I do my best to keep him (us) well fueled/nourished and he does his best to see that he gets that proper recovery. Plus I make us both Tu



INGREDIENTS;
  • 4-5 cups spring water
  • 1 to 2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 to 2 teaspoon ginger or 1 tbsp fresh ginger root
  • 1/4 cups or more lemon juice or juice of 1 lemon
  • Lemon Slices
  • 2 -4 tablespoon maple syrup or raw honey (adjust to desired sweetness)
  • 1 tsp Optional Lemon extract or lemon powder (such as true lemon)
  • Optional Stevia to sweeten more if desired
  • Optional pinch of black pepper to activate curcumin in turmeric
  • Fresh Mint leaves

INSTRUCTIONS;
  1. Bring water to a light boil on the stove.  Add in your spices and let it boil again for a minute, then reduce and simmer turmeric for 10 minutes. Remove from the stove and let it cool a bit. Then strain the liquid to get rid of excess ginger root or spice powder. Strain with a mesh strainer or cloth. Pour the rest of the liquid into a pitcher along with your lemon juice, extracts, and sweetener of choice. Mix again so that the maple syrup and lemon juice are combined with the turmeric ginger brew. x
  2. Garnish with extra lemon slices, fresh mint, and store in fridge. Add ice if desired but note it will dilute flavor.

Notes; Simmering will extract the beneficial compounds from the turmeric and ginger
