Immunity Shot

Spices are amazingly healthy for us.  The following recipe comes from the book, Power Spicing by Rachel Beller, MS, RDN.

Makes two 2 oz shots

1/2 cup coconut water

1 tablespoon fresh lemon or orange juice (about 1/2 lemon or 1/4 orange)

1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper (this improves the absorption of turmeric)

1 teaspoon cider vinegar

1 teaspoon raw honey or maple syrup – optional

Combine all ingredients in glass or jar and whisk until smooth.  I use a milk frother.  Serve.  It is best to drink quickly as spices will settle at bottom.

Notes:  I add 1 star anise that has been pulverized in a mortar and pestle.  This spice is an ingredient used in Tamiflu vaccine.  It is my “go-to” spice when I start feeling under the weather.

Other add ins:  1/8 teaspoon cayenne, 1/4 teaspoon Sri Lanka cinnamon.
