Turmeric & Cilantro Drink | Alive & Shine Recipes

Turmeric reduces inflammation and is a powerful antioxidant, with a bonus of boosting the immune system.

Turmeric Drink

1 cup organic cow, goat, coconut, soy, nut or rice milk or water

1 teaspoon organic turmeric powder

1 finely crushed organic black peppercorn (piperine helps the body assimilate curcumin, which is the healing agent in turmeric)

½ – ¼ teaspoon organic cinnamon powder or a stick of cinnamon

½ – ¼ teaspoon organic ginger powder

2 organic cloves or ¼ teaspoon organic clove powder

Pinch of organic saffron, crushed

¼ teaspoon organic cardamom powder, (optional)

1 teaspoon raw honey (unpasteurized, unheated, unprocessed), (optional)

Bring all ingredients to boil and then simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently (heat breaks down the turmeric, making it easier to digest). Remove from heat and wait until it is a drinkable temperature and then add honey (if using). *Remember to never heat honey or it becomes toxic.

Cilantro keeps the liver cleansed and oxygenates the blood, which boosts the immune system.

Cilantro Drink

1+ cup water

1 bunch of organic fresh cilantro (coriander leaves) washed in Fruit and Vegetable Rinse

1-2 cloves garlic

Juice from quarter to half an organic lemon

1/4 teaspoon of Himalayan Rock salt

Place all ingredients in a blender or VitaMix. Blend until smooth. You may add olive oil or dates (which have heating properties and are high in minerals).

Drink within 5 minutes. Makes enough for 2 people. You may also pour it over cooked rice or curry dishes. You may add cashews to thicken it to make a curry.

Note: The cilantro drink is oxygenating (high in chlorophyll), chelating (it pulls out heavy metals), and cooling. The drink is nutritional and not clinical, so it will not pull out the toxins too fast. The garlic is an important ingredient in the drink for balance in the system. The drink may deplete you over time because it may pull out minerals from the body, so only use it 2-3 times a week for the first month, and 1-3 times a week after.
