I tried the turmeric apple cider vinegar shot, or what’s being called a shot for the morning.
Watch the video here:
I’ve heard that curcumin in turmeric is an anti-inflammatory, and I wanted to see what this shot was all about (re: flavor and effects).
Now, in terms of flavor – I went the hardcore way with this drink, and used water instead of juice. I’m sure juice would taste better, but I didn’t want the extra sugar.
Here’s the recipe I tried:
-Instead of the 2/5 cup of the juice of your choice, I used water (again, that’s the hardcore version)
-1 tablespoon ground turmeric
-1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
-1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
-1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
-1 tablespoon olive oil (and that’s not low in calories, but it is considered a healthier fat)
-1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
*Just for kicks ’cause I like spice, I also added a pinch of chile/lime blend – only a pinch because it’s not low in sodium
