Ingredients in Turmeric Tonic
Benefits of Turmeric
For me, this means cooking and eating foods that are alive and full of nutrients- rather than ones that leave me feeling heavy and tired. Instead of saying, I’m not going to eating dairy or sugar, I gently nudge myself away from the mindset of “rules”, into the realm of feelings, remembering how wonderful it feels to feel vibrant, alive and energized.
Because cooking is a big part of my work and everyday life, I feel more grounded to the earth and its cycles when I prepare food that actually comes from the ground, when it’s grown in its true season. And yes, of course, it is much harder in winter to always stick to this!

So tasty and healthy feeling.
I really enjoyed this tonic and the tea!! Thanks for continuing to bring fresh ideas that are easy to make!!
pls excuse my ignorance, but how did you make this, did you put it in a blender and blitz it all? thank you
You seep the the ingredients in boiling water, then strain. Using a french press is easiest.
Thank you for the recipe. I cut the ingredients in half for my ninja juicer. Unlike my other juicer this one keeps the pulp. It turned out well
Hi, just wanted to say thanks for this great post and let you know I mentioned you blog on mine with this posting where I did a micro modified version of it (https://healthyandraw.wordpress.com/2016/02/22/tumeric-tonic/) 🙂
En español por favor
Should one drink this every day. It sounds really good
What do you mean by turmeric tonic? Can you use a red beet instead of yellow? We don’t have a lot of fresh farm markets in our area that carry a lot of ”different” things.
Thanks Sharon! I call it a “tonic” because it’s healing, although, I can see how this may be confusing…is basically fresh juice with fresh turmeric root. 🙂 Red beets are just fine, the flavor won’t change a bit — the reason I chose golden beets for this is it allows the color of the turmeric to really shine through, where with a red beet will mask it. Simple as that!! I hope you give it a shot, it’s really good!!
Could you make this in a whole fruits blender?I have a ninja, which I am in love with. I add ground tumeric to my morning smoothie but have been trying to make some detox mixies a few days a week.
thanks, and I love theblog👌💙
Thanks Amber! Im not sure…have never tried! If you do try it, please let me know what you think…Im very curious! Start off very sparingly with the fresh turmeric, too much can get bitter. 🙂
how often should a person take this drink? once a week etc.
You could drink this everyday!
so happy I found your blog, thank you for all you do 🙂 !!
Love oranges and turmeric mix!
yes absolutely! Start with a ½ teaspoon, and taste, add more if you like the flavor.
Thanks! I just made it with 1/2 teaspoon and it was SO GOOD! I think I’ll add a little extra next time 😉 My 63 year old mom is trying turmeric for the very first time today too thanks to your recipe! Thank you!!
I tried this today with 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric and it was SO GOOD! I think I’ll try adding a little more next time 😉 My 63 year old mom is trying turmeric for the very first time thanks to your recipe so THANK YOU!! 🙂
If I can’t find fresh turmeric, can I stir in some ground turmeric after everything is juiced? If so, how much would you use? Thanks!
beautiful…can’t wait to try this!
Wow, this is the bomb! My husband, daughter and I loved it!!! Thank you for sharing and will for sure be making more recipes from your site. Found you on Pinterest:)
Can you use a BlendTec to blend this.
Im not sure what that is? 🙂
You are AMAZING! I am so incredibly happy to find your blog and looking forward to seeing all of your new upcoming recipes for 2014! You have inspired me to cook more at home this year….
If so, I was looking to use less dairy in my diet this year, yet I feel dairy (i.e. CHEESE) can be so flavorful and hearty. It also fills me up the way meat does… but lately it hasn’t been agreeing with me when I eat too much. I’ve always had a hard time flavoring food..I can make it look pretty, but it tends to fall bland. What would you say are essential seasonings/oils/whatever that I should have in my pantry to give my food great flavor (so I dont throw cheese on it!)? I live in the middle of the dessert now and your recipes have me missing the fresh ingredients I had access to in the Bay Area. The lack of unique produce left me uninspired to cook in 2013 but I plan to break out of the rut!
I know that’s a long-winded message there, but you inspire me (did I already say that?!) Haha. Thanks again!
Yay! Im so glad you are finding inspiration here. Thank you. Creating flavor without cheese can be challenging, but totally doable – by using other ingredients that are pungent or full of umami flavors. But truthfully, the simplest place to start is with salt. Often food that lacks salt, tastes bland. Salt makes the over flavors come out more. Then think acid ( citrus, vinegar). Then depth….like Soy, miso, caramelized onion, garlic, smoked salt, pungent flavors like anchovy,capers, fish sauce. And I love using fresh herbs in abundance. It really depends on the recipe. Feel to email me with specifics anytime. Happy New year!!
Can you puree in the blender if you don’t have a juicer?
You could try it but it might be difficult to blend up the carrots and beets unless you have a strong blender like a vita- mix. Let us know if it works…Thanks Terina.
Hi, this looks fantastic! Where did you get the fresh turmeric root? Thanks!
Fresh turmeric is available locally at most Asian markets and at Huckleberries.
That’s a great attitude to have! I too have promised myself that I will actively do things to make myself feel better. I love this juice! Pinned to make ASAP!
I love this! I’m amazed by the health benefits of turmeric, and I always feel so refreshed when I get it in my system. Beautiful, tasty beverage! Happy New Year!
Thanks Julia- happy New year to you too!
This is perfect to start the year off right! Love!
Thanks Katrina- loving your blog as well. Happy new year!
