Juice Shot: The Metabolic Bomb

Also known as detox shots, wellness shots, booster shots,  immunity shots, or bombs, these small portions of nutrient dense juice pack a huge punch of vitamins and antioxidants in a small 4 oz shot with only 25 calories!


Why Lemon and Ginger?

These mini wellness concoctions typically consist of lemon and ginger, with or without a few added ingredients. Lemon and ginger are known for their high concentration of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. This powerhouse team assists in promoting numerous health benefits including:

  • Boosting the body’s immune system
  • Relief of symptoms from arthritis and other inflammatory illnesses
  • Balancing the body’s PH
  • Neutralizing free radicals that turn healthy cells into sick or cancerous cells
  • Support of digestive health, settles upset stomach
  • Detoxification, cleansing the liver and colon of built up waste and toxins
  • Regulating blood pressure
  • Clearing skin and reducing premature aging
  • Improving eye care & brain function

Why We Love This Recipe

The celery helps to balance the ginger and lemon while supporting weight loss and boosting the metabolism. At only 25 calories per 4 oz shot, you can easily add this into your daily routine even if you are watching your calorie count. Adding the cayenne not only gives this shot an extra flavor kick, it also gives your metabolism a kick too!

This Is a Menu-Must if Selling Juice

Some of you may already have them on your menu, but for those of you who do not, listen up! Because—number one—they make a great add-on product to any juice purchase, as they are small and relatively inexpensive compared to a bottle of juice, and—number two—they are fun and really good for you. Your customers will love them!  Usually sold for $3 – $7 depending on size and ingredients (conventional /organic), they can be kept near the register for easy grab-and-go, much like grocery stores do with candy and water.
