  • 125 grams fresh turmeric approximately 1 cup roughly chopped
  • 20 grams fresh ginger approximately 1 finger sized piece
  • 4 cups coconut water
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 2 tablespoons honey or other sweetener
  • a pinch of black pepper (optional)


  • Slice the turmeric and ginger into thin disks. Feel free to leave the skin on.
  • Add the turmeric, ginger, black pepper and coconut water into a blender. Blend on high speed for about a minute, until it's a smooth mixture.
  • Pour the mixture into a pot and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 20 minutes. Then add the lemon juice and honey, and give everything a good stir.
  • Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve, nut milk bag or muslin cloth. Then pour into a glass bottle or jar and refrigerate. Enjoy chilled or warm.



  • If you like my storage containers, they're these juice jars and glass bottle.
  • While I think this recipe is best with fresh turmeric, you can always try it with powdered turmeric. Usually 1/3 cup of powdered turmeric equals 1 cup of fresh turmeric.
