This recipe for tasty and healthy ginger turmeric juice shots is a great way to fight inflammation, boost your immunity and provide a burst of energy!
Need some extra energy or some help with sore joints? Or looking to boost your immunity this fall season? We’ve got you covered with our latest recipe. These juice shots are a great way to give your body what it needs to fight inflammation and boost your immune system while providing a burst of energy.
Last summer I shared my experience with overcoming inflammation and posted the Anti-inflammatory Juice Recipe. You all LOVED it, so Chef Ari and I decided we wanted to bring you yet another juicer recipe to help battle inflammation, support your immune system (perfect for flu season), and give you a boost of energy!
I am obsessed with these juice shots because they are so easy to make with only four fresh ingredients needed along with some berries from the freezer and one pantry item (easy, black pepper!).
These fruity shots are great first thing in the morning on an empty stomach or if you need a little afternoon energy boost.
You can even incorporate them into your juice cleanse. Download my free eBook on how to do a juice cleanse for more tips and recipes!
Why We Love This Juice Shot
Chef Ari did a great job choosing natural anti-inflammatory foods that pair well together when juiced.
Here’s a look into the creative mind of Chef Ari on how he paired these amazing ingredients:
“The strawberry and blueberry base naturally lend a tart and sweet flavor to this juice. To increase the depth of flavor with a slight pungent heat, we added turmeric, ginger and a touch of black pepper. Oranges add cheery, refreshing acidity, while the pear rounds it out with a light sweetness, but not so sweet that it overpowers the berry flavor.”
Not only does it taste great, at only 42 calories per 4 oz shot, you can easily add this into your daily routine even if you are watching your calorie count.
Now that we covered the great taste, it’s time to get into the real “meat” of the matter…the nutrition and health benefits.
Health Benefits of This Ginger Turmeric Juice Shot

Prior to making this recipe, remove the strawberries from the freezer to thaw. They are ready to juice with the rest of the ingredients when they are about halfway thawed out.
Peel the orange.
Juice all produce together.
Add a pinch of black pepper to each shot glass or bottle and pour the juice on top.
If turmeric root is unavailable, you can sub ground turmeric. For a half ounce of turmeric root, use 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder.
No need to peel the ginger, it actually has a light gingery flavor and some nutritional value as well.
Berries are a mushy fruit, so take care not to overfill the press to avoid overflow.
