Apple Ginger Lemon Juice Shot Recipe


What is a Ginger Shot?

A ginger shot is raw juice made by juicing fresh ginger root. The ingredients of a ginger shot may vary depending on the recipe. Some shots are made with only fresh ginger juice, while others might contain other ingredients like lemon juice, orange juice, turmeric, cayenne pepper, and/or raw honey or maple syrup.

This particular ginger shot we are making today is a combination of not only fresh ginger juice, but lemon and apple juice as well.

The 5-star formula for creating juice shots that you can learn from this recipe is equal parts of lemon to equal parts of ginger. This combination will give you the perfect juice shot base. From there, you can experiment by bringing in additional sweet fruit to take the edge off.

Ginger Shot Benefits

  • Amazing at fighting inflammation. Ginger, lemon and apple are full of compounds that have powerful anti-inflammatory effects.
  • Supports your immune system. This juice shot contains loads of antioxidants and vitamins that can enhance the immune system, plus fight harmful bacteria and viruses.
  • Effective at lowering blood pressure. Fresh ginger juice lowers blood pressure by dilating the blood vessels and thinning the blood.


How To Make a Ginger Shot

  1. Wash the fresh ginger root with a brush, then chop or break into smaller pieces leaving the skin on.
  2. Juice the ingredients together. If you don't have a juicer, read up on how to make fresh juices with a blender.

Hi Terry, We use apple just to add a touch of sweetness to cut through the sharp punch of lemon and ginger. So you can do it to taste, but if you are looking for recommendations, we would recommend about a 1/4oz honey per shot. Cheers!
