Carrot & Lemon - Ginger & Turmeric Mocktail

Say goodbye to pesky spring allergy symptoms with my Ayurvedically-crafted mocktail designed to soothe your sinuses and delight your taste buds. Also, I need a better name for this mocktail! Can you think of one?

Carrot & Lemon - Ginger & Turmeric Mocktail

This mocktail is perfect for the spring season, when many people suffer from allergies and sinus issues.

In Ayurveda, carrots are considered a natural remedy for allergies due to their cleansing and detoxifying properties. Carrots are believed to help reduce the accumulation of toxins in the body, which is believed to be a root cause of many allergies.

The combination of carrots with these three other ingredients creates a powerful anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting drink that can help reduce inflammation in the body, ease congestion, and support overall wellness.


Carrot & Lemon - Ginger & Turmeric Mocktail


Ingredients


Gather all of your ingredients and lets get started!

  • 8 medium to small carrots

  • 1 lemon

  • 2" section of ginger root

  • 2" section of turmeric root

  • Sparkling water

  • Optional splash of apple cider vinegar (highly recommended!)

  • Optional honey & salt for rimming the glasses (also highly recommended!)


Directions Using a Juicer


Makes 2 servings

  1. Prepare glasses by salting the rims .

  2. Juice the carrots, ginger and turmeric roots.

  3. Squeeze the lemon into the juice mixture (or juice it along with the roots). Remember to save a slice for garnish.

  4. Add apple cider vinegar to the mixture for the benefits but also for that true cocktail taste.

  5. Pour mixture into shaker with ice.

  6. Strain into glasses and top of with sparkling water.

  7. Cut saved slice of lemon into halves and add garnish.


Directions Using a Blender


A juicer definitely makes this recipe easier but if you don't have a juicer, you can use a blender. In a blender, combine the chopped carrots, lemon juice, ginger & turmeric roots and water as needed to blend.

  1. Blend everything together until smooth.

  2. Taste the mocktail and adjust the consistency to your liking. If it's too thick, you can add more water to thin it out.




This mocktail is not only delicious, but also packed with health benefits. Here's why:

  • Carrots: Rich in beta-carotene, which is converted to vitamin A in the body and helps boost immunity and reduce inflammation. Carrots also contain fiber, potassium, and other important nutrients that support overall health.

  • Lemons: High in vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant that helps boost immunity and reduce inflammation. Lemons also contain citric acid, which can help improve digestion and cleanse the liver.

  • Ginger: A natural anti-inflammatory that can help reduce inflammation in the body and ease digestive issues. Ginger is also a warming herb that helps to improve circulation and support respiratory health.

  • Turmeric: Contains curcumin, which is a powerful anti-inflammatory compound that helps reduce inflammation in the body. Turmeric is also believed to have antioxidant and anti-cancer properties.

Together, these ingredients create a potent and delicious mocktail that can help alleviate spring allergies, boost immunity, and support overall health.


I hope you enjoy this recipe!
