  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/3 tsp grated ginger
  • 1/3 tsp grated turmeric

Bring water to boil in a small pot, turn down to low heat and add in the ginger and turmeric. Cover and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, then strain.

Add in:

  • raw honey
  • lemon
  • coconut oil*

*Turmeric is fat-soluble, so to aid in its absorption it is important to eat it with some form of tasty fat! A bit of coconut oil does just the trick.

Enjoy!
