Sometimes you just want to have a drink that's enjoyed for taste. But wouldn't it be nice if that drink were also healthy? That's how I came up with this keto-friendly ginger turmeric cider vinegar tonic recipe. I blend a whole bunch of ginger pieces along with one small piece of turmeric (and a couple of cracks of black pepper to activate it) into a puree and then filter out everything but the juice. Combine that raw cider vinegar, carbonated water and a few drops of liquid stevia and you enjoy a delicious fizzy drink every day while patting yourself on the back for your healthy choice.
Keto Ginger Turmeric Cider Vinegar Tonic Recipe
Concentrated Ginger Turmeric Juice Ingredients:
- 2 cups fresh ginger, washed and chopped into 1" pieces (no need to peel)
- One 1" piece turmeric, washed
- A couple of turns of freshly ground black pepper
- 1 cup of water
(*Note: If you don’t like the taste of the turmeric, you can put less, use a pinch off ground turmeric or leave it out altogether.)
- 2 tablespoons raw cider vinegar
- 450-500ml carbonated water
- Liquid stevia drops (to taste)
A pinch of sea salt
1 lemon or lime wedge
Combine ginger, turmeric and black pepper into a high-speed blender (*I use a Blendtec Blender.) Pulse until puréed.
Strain the purée using a fine strainer. Pour this juice into a glass bottle and store in the fridge until needed.
To prepare a drink, add 2 tablespoons of the concentrated juice, cider vinegar, liquid stevia drops and carbonated water to a large glass. Squeeze lime or lemon wedge into the glass. Stir gently, add ice if desired, and serve.
