I made this ginger elixir recipe because I wanted a drink that would elevate me each day. Packed with so antioxidants and nutrition I have to say this is my all time favourite drink. I think I even like more than coffee, so that is saying something.

Originally this was to go in my new keto vegan cookbook. It still will but it is so good I felt the need to share.

The ingredients to make this ginger elixir recipe

Here is everything you need to whip up a quick batch of my delicious ginger elixir recipe. I will add some alternatives below as you may want to add more or less to the mixture.

how to make ginger elixir

This recipe is simply made by blending, heating and infusing the ginger and turmeric into the water. Then adding the remaining ingredients. However I understand that some of you may prefer to have a raw ginger elixir. So anyway here are my hot tips for the best ginger elixirs.

Use fresh ginger and turmeric

Honestly the flavour of these two combined is sensational! Pair that with all the antioxidants you will doing yourself a health service. There is so many studies into the powers of these two plants. They are used so widely in herbal medicine and many articles are widely available on the internet protesting their health benefits.

HOT TIP – after I have made the elixir I keep the ginger and turmeric and reuse in the next batch. Both ginger and turmeric can be stored in the freezer and simply thawed or grated as needed. This will reduce wastage and save money. Plus no health benefits are lost through freezing.

how to make a raw ginger elixir

This is just as simple but takes a little while longer to infuse. Simply add the ginger and turmeric to a food processor, slow press juicer or grate them and add them to room temperature filtered water. I recommend room temperature water to help infuse the flavours. Leave this, covered at room temperature for a few hours or even overnight. This could also be added to a mason jar and kept at room temp for up to a week to truly infuse a stronger flavour. Add all the ingredients at once if you wish.

Either way, cooked or raw, this recipe makes an amazing ginger and turmeric elixir.

How to serve the elixir and ways to use it

Here are just a few ways to serve this delicious elixir.

  1. Straight up – neat. Serve in a half cup measure hot or cold.
  2. Over ice
  3. Serve a half cup measure in a large glass of soda water with fresh mint or rosemary.
  4. Add a splash of apple cider vinegar to any version.
  5. Mix 1 cup of elixir with 5 tablespoons of gelatin. Leave for 5 minutes to bloom before heating until all the gelatin is dissolved. Strain and pour into a gummy mould for tasty snacking keto gummies. Add some sweetener or a few drops of cinnamon extract/cinnamon Lorann oil for a bit of extra kick. I can attest to the fact that these gummies are simply AMAZING! Like a cinnamon red hot ginger flavour. So damn good!
