Turmeric Ginger Lemon Detox Tea (Serves 2-3)
16-20 oz. of filtered water
1 inch of fresh organic turmeric root
1 inch of fresh organic ginger root
Pinch of black pepper (see note)
1 lemon slice (do not boil, add to tea before serving)
Honey (optional to sweeten)
Note: Research shows that when you add a pinch of black pepper to any recipe that has turmeric, and you will increase the potency of your turmeric by 2,000%
Bring a pot of water to a boil. While water is boiling, peel the turmeric and ginger and dice it into small pieces (the smaller the better).
Once boiling, remove pot of water from heat. Next, add turmeric, ginger, and black pepper into the pot with water and simmer for at least 10 minutes (the longer you simmer, the more potent and concentrated the Detox Tea will be).
Squeeze a lemon slice into the cup and enjoy (note – if the lemon is organic, you can drop the entire slice in your cup. If not organic, just squeeze the juice.
Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for a healthy cold Detox “Iced” Tea.
