– 5 pieces of fresh turmeric root, washed
– 1 lemon – warm water –
 2 tablespoon honey – cold water
Preparation: Put the turmeric root, and the the lemon through your juicer, you can put the pulp back a second and maybe even a third time to get all the goodness out. Leave the juicer running and pour about 1/2 cup warm water through. Mix in the honey. If you don’t want to use honey, either swap the lemon for an orange or use a different sweetener (it wont be as medicinal, but it will be sweeter…)
Top up with 1-2 cups cold water and store in fridge (keeps for a few days). Serve over ice in short glasses. Turmeric also goes really well with freshly juiced pineapple and gives you a nice natural buzzy feeling..

Juice and enjoy!
