Turmeric Lemonade Tea

Serves 4  | Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: none

Who says you have to wait for the summer for a lemonade. Make it hot or chilled.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons fresh turmeric, micro planned (no need to peel)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, micro planned (no need to peel)
  • Peel of one lemon
  • 4 cups filtered water
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • Add ins: sliced cucumber, mint, thyme or basil

Chef Tips

If you can’t find fresh turmeric use about 2 teaspoons of really fresh dried. I find the fresh turmeric to have less pungency. 

Preparation

Step 1

Combine the turmeric, ginger, lemon peel and water in a pot. Bring to a simmer. Turn off the heat and let steep like a tea for 10 minutes.

Step 2

Strain the infused liquid stir in the honey until dissolved. Add in the lemon and orange juice. Serve warm or chilled.
