Ginger Shot Recipes for Slow Juicers and Blenders

Preparation Ginger Shot Recipes

There is a simple way to benefit from the positive effects of ginger: Ginger shots. These are highly concentrated mini drinks made from ginger, which are sensationally good for colds, can boost your immune system or heat us up from the inside and stimulate the metabolism. But a ginger shot also helps against digestive problems - e.g after a heavy meal. A ginger shot works like a 'digestive' bitter, but without the alcohol.

You can make a ginger shot either classically with a slow juicer by juicing the ginger or you can use a high-speed blender and make a mini ginger smoothie, which is mixed with other ingredients such as honey and lemon juice.
Here are some recipes for both methods of preparation:

Ginger Shot Recipes for Slow Juicer

When preparing a ginger shot with a slow juicer, you don't need any ingredients other than ginger. The ginger is simply juiced, making it pure and milder to drink than when prepared with a blender. And yet, a juiced ginger shot has it all. Try it in small sips. If the ginger shot is too spicy for you, simply add a little water or add the juice of an apple - which of course was juiced. Both recipes shown here are for the slow juicers.

Ginger shot recipes for the blender

If you don't have a slow juicer at home, but you do have a high-spedd blender, you can easily make ginger shots with a high-speed blender. The difference is that you use the whole ginger, plus you need liquid like orange or lemon juice to blend it. We also add honey to sweeten it. If you prefer the vegan version, you can of course also use vegetable sweeteners such as agave syrup or maple syrup. However, honey has an advantage: It has an antibacterial effect and makes the ginger shot even more durable.

You can combine the Ginger Shot from the blender with other ingredients such as the anti-inflammatory turmeric. Turmeric isn't nearly as spicy as ginger, and that's why you can add some black pepper to this shot. Pepper improves the bioavailability of turmeric and enhances its absorption by the body. In terms of taste, orange juice goes perfectly with it - blood orange juice is also welcome.

Dosage and application

Ginger shots out of the blender are much spicier than from a slow juicer, we explicitly give a few more tips on dosage and application:

You can either drink it pure - about a shot glass of 1 cl (10 ml) or diluted with water in a ratio of 1:3 or even 1:4, just find your way! If you drink the Ginger Shot undiluted, expect to feel its fiery finish in your throat - it warms you up all the way to your stomach area.
Of course, the Ginger Shot from the blender can also be turned into a fresh tea with hot water - extremely beneficial for a cold. However, it loses heat-sensitive ingredients.

CAUTION: Turmeric colors the blender jar yellowish. However, our experience shows that the colored turmeric residue is not permanent. After a few applications or preparations of green smoothies, the turmeric yellow is no longer visible.

I fell in love with the first sip. In 2010 a friend of mine served me my first green smoothie. Since then, green smoothies are my absolute favorite breakfast. Quickly prepared, I start my day healthy, delicious and well nourished. I carry the feeling of this delicious healthy breakfast with me all day long - all the way through to the evening.
Nice side effect: Without renunciation or nutritional dogma, green smoothies regulate my desire for coffee, chocolate and all the other temptations.

Among other things, Carla gives workshops for beginners and also is responsible for social media and communication.

Hello all,
thanks for the ginger shot recipes.
The Ginger Shot was also recommended to me by an alternative practitioner for prevention in times of colds (made with a juicer though)
I can't print the recipes as a PDF unfortunately, I don't get them. Signed up for the newsletter again, but it still doesn't work. Could you please send me the link to the PDF files – thanks!

Dear Karin,
have you already checked your SPAM folder? I just sent you the link for the ginger shot recipes. I hope it works this time.

Regarding the ginger shot, wouldn't lemons with zest (organic quality, of course) be even more vitamin-rich?
1/7/2019
Carla von GrüneSmoothies.de
Dear Beate,
there are always nutrients in the peels – lemons also have essential oils in their peel, these essential oils are not only heathy but can also have a massive influence on the taste of the smoothie.
However, I would advise against using all lemon peels for taste reasons. Try it with a thin slice of lemon with peel. Kind regards, Carla

I have just prepared the ginger shot. I can't drink it pure, and therefore I dilute it in a 1:3 ratio. But I still have the feeling that the lemons attack the stomach.

Then I would dilute it even more. There is nothing against it. Love, Carla

Hello .....
I prepared your recipe today with my Vitamix and am totally thrilled. At the beginning a bit spicy but then simply delicious. Greetings from Bavaria:)

I also find the shot preparation in the blender super easy and the result is totally convincing. Thanks for your positive feedback, love, Carla

I intend to make this smoothie. Question: how much turmeric should I use in powder form?
Best Regards Catrin
1/7/2019
Carla von GrüneSmoothies.de
Hello Catrin,
I would imagine that you could replace the 30 g of fresh turmeric with about 20 g of powder. However, I have never made the shots with turmeric powder, so this is just a rough estimate. Please let me know how you like the taste!
Kind regards, Carla

Apple is traditionally used instead of orange - in Ayurvedic terms, I believe. Fresh ginger and turmeric can always take some pepper, which increases the receptivity of the body for turmeric. Add a pinch of cayenne pepper, if a little spiciness is not a problem, and a little Ceylon cinnamon. Perfect.
Slightly head the mixture after blending, adding good fat (ideal coconut fat). It also increases the body's absorption capacity for turmeric – probably through the lymphatic system. It doesn't get any better than that. I've been doing this for a long time, but now with my blender and no longer with the juicer. Goes much faster now, super.

Dear Thomas, thank you for your helpful hints. Preparing your shots in the blender makes it much easier! Love, Carla

I have made the variant with turmeric.
And drank it right away. Very tasty. As I' m pregnant right now a friend told me to be careful, because the shot would be labor-promoting? Do you know anything about this topic? Greetings Kerstin

Carla von GrüneSmoothies.de
Dear Kerstin,
I'm glad you enjoyed the ginger-turmeric shot. I can't tell whether it promotes labour. There are hints on the web that ginger can induce labour. Maybe you should read up on it. Or just omit the shots until your baby:)

Love and all the best, Carla

Dear Green Smoothies Team, thank you so much for your recipes! We tried the blender but prefer the juicer. Our recipe: 300 g ginger, 60 g turmeric, 3 lemons, 4 apples. Juice everything, bottle and top up with water to one liter - enjoy 50 ml every day! FANTASTIC!?
Besides that, we drink a delicious green smoothie every day! Best Regards

This works perfectly – the taste is less intense. But we were also very surprised how well the blender is suitable for the preparation of the shots. Great for those who do not have a (good) juicer at home. Thanks for your feedback, Carla

I wonder why ginger should be processed WITH the peel in the shot or even in smoothies!!!!
Thanks for the answer.
1/4/2019
Carla von GrüneSmoothies.de
Dear Kerstin,
Important nutrients can be found in the ginger peel and also directly underneath it. We do not want to miss them, whether in a shot or in a smoothie. Therefore, we use ginger and turmeric in organic quality. Kind regards, Carla
