Magic Turmeric Tea

Peruse a wide assortment of healthy recipes, featuring fresh, organic ingredients for your family from Royal River Natural Foods.

With the nasty bug going around, this is a must do. If you don’t like garlic it may be hard to swallow but otherwise, it is quite tasty and will help to keep the cold at bay. This recipe is from The Endless Meal.


Juice from 1 lemon

11/2 tsp. grated fresh ginger root

1 tsp grated fresh turmeric root

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 small garlic clove, grated with microplane

1 bag of green tea (optional)

1 tsp honey

Place all the ingredients into a mug and fill with nearly boiling water. Let the tea steep for 2-3 minutes then remover the bag and sip away. Keep your spoon handy and stir before each sip to mix up the ingredients.

A great trick is to keep both the ginger and turmeric root in your freezer until needed. It will keep it from going limp and also make it easier to grate.
