Ingredients

  • 5 cups of water
  • The yellow peel of 1 lemon use a veggie peeler
  • 2 inch piece of ginger cut in thin rounds. No need to peel the skin
  • 2 inch piece of turmeric root cut in thin rounds. No need to peel the skin
  • Tiny pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 crack of black pepper
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon virgin coconut oil optional
  • Honey

Instructions

  1. Bring the water, lemon peel, ginger, turmeric, cayenne, and black pepper to a bare simmer, turn the heat down a notch, and cook for 7 minutes. You don't want the pot to bubble or boil, it's harmful to the nutrients in the turmeric. Take off the heat and squeeze in the lemon juice and stir in the coconut oil if using. Strain the tea into a cup and add 1 teaspoon of honey. If using raw honey, wait for the tea to cool down a few minutes so the heat doesn't destroy some of it's nutrients. The tea will keep for 3 days either at room temperature or in the fridge. Just heat the entire pot and serve as needed. Enjoy & feel better!

    1. You don’t have to, but it’s best if you drink it at least an hour after you eat, or 30 min before eating.

  1. Pregnancy and trying to stick to wholistic remedies. Once again, you’ve come up with a right on time recipe! Super excited! I can’t even remember how I found your Instagram page but it has been a blessing!

  2. This sounds awesome!! We are a Keto family so is there something we could use in place of the honey? Love all your Keto videos!!!

    1. Stacia, the tea is great without any sweetener, but if you’d like to balance the lemon and ginger I’d recommend a few drops of stevia.

  3. What is your opinion on Turmeric supplements? I started taking them last year to fight off inflammation but after watching your video I wonder if they are truly being absorbed into my system? Super excited to find you on you tube today!!

    1. Hi Gwen, supplement help, but keep in mind that turmeric needs black pepper and coconut oil to be absorbed properly, so it’s worth using the actual root.

  4. I decided to try this after you talked about it on your Whole Foods videos. It’s actually really delicious. I’m hooked

    1. Hey Tiwana & Sylvan, I prefer it warm, since I add a little coconut oil and it melts nicely. But you can definitely drink it cold if it tasted good to you! You’ll still get the benefits!

  5. is it possible to put these ingredients uncooked in a blender and high speed (like w/Vitamix) to completely mix it to the cellular level and get the same benefits? or would this ‘crush’ the nutrients and maybe cooking “releases” the benefits? like, is it better raw or cooked? and why wouldn’t you leave the skin on the ginger and turmeric root? more nutrients right? or no?

    I love your content Bobby~! thank you~!

    1. Thanks for the kind words! The recipe is for tea so you want to boil them. The recipe says to leave the skin on the ginger and turmeric (no need to peel). You DO need the peel of the lemon because of all the flavor from the essential oils in it. If you do want to eat the ingredients raw you could blend them in the blender, but the flavor would be a bit harsh.
