Jamu Juice! Bali’s all-natural, anti-inflammatory juice made with fresh turmeric root, ginger, honey and a squeeze of lemon. Heals and soothes the body! Make a big batch and serve hot or cold during the busy work week!
Hello friends. This is a recipe from Bali, called Jamu, or Jamu Juice we recently discovered while visiting spring. It is an all-natural, anti-inflammatory juice, made with fresh turmeric root, ginger, honey (OR maple) and a squeeze of lemon – that can be served warm like tea or chilled – which has become a godsend ever since we got back from our trip there last spring.
It’s very simple to make and very often I’ll make a quick batch on Sunday and then drink it during the week.
It’s also very soothing if you have a cold, served hot before bedtime.
What is Jamu?
Jamu is a healing juice that originates from Indonesia, where there are many varieties of this healing herbal root infusion typically including turmeric and ginger root.
This version, the most common we found in Bali, was made with fresh turmeric root and ginger blended up with water, then strained, and sweetened with honey , finished with a squeeze of citrus. Very refreshing during the hot months, yet soothing and warming during the cold months.
Turmeric has a particularly soothing effect on my old tired achy bones, relieving aches and pains after workouts and hikes.
It contains powerful anti-inflammatory agents that in my opinion work just as well as Advil, without any side effects or harm to the liver.
Don’t take my word for it, try it for yourself and see.
This is an extra-large two quart jar that holds 8 cups of Jamu juice.
I find Brian and I can easily go through this in a week.
During the summer months, drink it cold, strait from the fridge.
And in the winter, heat it up and drink it like hot tea.
In cold and flu season, this is also really soothing for sore throats and colds.
Jamu juice can be made in a blender or in your juicer– and either way I know you’ll love its healing effects!
