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 2 oz – 4 oz shot.

Ingredients to make The Metabolic Bomb juice shot.

Why 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.

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. Adding the cayenne not only gives this shot an extra flavor kick, it also gives your metabolism a kick too!

    13 oz
  • celery
    10 oz
  • cayenne
    1 pinch
    ground

Directions

  1. Wash the produce.

  2. Peel the lemon if you prefer a lighter flavor. For stronger flavored or full bodied juices, grind these with the peel on.

  3. Weigh all ingredients.

  4. Juice the ingredients together.

  5. Drop a pinch of cayenne pepper into each bottle or jar and pour the juice.

Pro Tips

  • Even amounts of ginger and lemon make a great base for any juice shot. From there, you can customize it however you want! We like to choose fruit and veggies that are in season because they are fresher, taste better and are usually less expensive than when they are out of season.
  • Peeling the lemon is a matter of preference. I like to "skip peel" them, which is basically just roughly cutting off the peel, leaving some behind. This speeds up prep, and the little bit of peel adds a zest!

  1. How long can I keep it in my fridge?

    1. Hi Jackie,

      It really depends on how the juice is made. If you are using a typical home juicer that utilizes centrifugal force (which creates heat), you will want to drink immediately or at least within the first few hours as the juice oxidizes and the nutrients break down quickly. If you are using a masticating, slow juicer or twin gear juicer, I would recommend to keep in the fridge for a maximum of 3 days because you will find the flavor and nutrients to diminish. If you are using a press, this recipe will keep in the fridge for up to 7 days. You can read more on the different types of juicers here: https://www.goodnature.com/blog/types-of-juicers/

      Happy Juicing 🙂
