Turmeric Lemonade Recipe: What a Delicious Way to Stay Hydrated!
Turmeric lemonade is so simple, quick and easy to make. It tastes delicious. AND of course turmeric is probably the most potent anti-inflammatory on Earth. What a win!
I only discovered this by chance the other day, feeling bored with plain water (yep, even I get bored of water!) but needing to keep my hydration up. I often make turmeric tea, and my version of Bulletproof ‘Coffee’ (clue, it doesn’t have coffee in it)…BUT…I had to dash out of the door, so kinda just made turmeric tea…cold…squeezed in some lemon to give it a bit more of an alkaline boost and VOILA!
Simple. Sometimes the most delicious, brilliant recipes are simple.
And this turmeric lemonade couldn’t be easier or more simple – give it a try, it’s just delicious!
Turmeric Lemonade – Alkaline Recipe #215
660ml of filtered (preferably alkaline) water
2 tbsp turmeric, fresh or powdered (see note below)
1 1/2 lemons, juiced
Optional: stevia drops to taste
Simply mix everything together!
Note: there are a couple of things to explain –
Firstly, if you are using fresh turmeric, wear plastic food preparation gloves and be aware the turmeric will stain anything it touches, and use a grater. OR, you can juice the turmeric and add it to the water, but it is tricky to juice such a small amount of fresh turmeric and a pain to clean a whole juicer just for this little bit of juice.
I personally just use organic powdered turmeric.
The other note is that you can use sparkling water. Sparkling water is mildly acid-forming, BUT, if this is just a once every few days drink then that’s not really a problem – and it does make it much more lemonade-y!
