You know that moment when the itch in the back of your throat that’s been coming and going for days decides to set up camp and that runny nose you were sure was just allergies becomes an all out faucet?  This is the juice to turn to.

Fresh, bright and full of heat it comes to the rescue, soothing sore throats, easing congestion, settling upset stomachs and just generally offering a welcome dose of energy.

On those days when you neither have the energy or motivation to make anything proper to eat, freshly pressed juice can go a long way in supplying much needed nutrients.

This particular one starts with a base of fruits and vegetables to which fresh ginger and turmeric root are added and is finished with a pinch of cayenne pepper for extra zing.  It’s the lingering heat of ginger and cayenne that help numb scratchy throats and clear up those sinuses while the orange and lemon supply vitamin C.

Fresh turmeric, with its earthy flavor pairs nicely with root vegetables like carrots and beets and offers its own anti-inflammatory properties.  To get the most out of the turmeric I add a little pinch of black pepper to the mix as well which adds a extra layer of spiciness and makes the curcumin in the turmeric more available.

    Sylvie, what a gorgeous juice–it looks like a bright ruby :) And this recipe could not have come at a better time, as I feel the first inkling of my annual summer cold coming on. Can’t wait to try this in my new juicer!

    LOVELY! I made root juice this morning-golden beets, carrot, ginger plus a grapefruit for a little balance. SO YUM. But I will have to make your juice!
