Give your immune system a little boost this cold and flu season with a tasty, nutrient-packed honey turmeric vitamin C shot. It’s easy to make with simple kitchen ingredients and tastes way better than a supplement!


  • ½ cup 100% Florida Orange Juice
  • 1 tsp grated fresh turmeric
  • ¼ tsp grated fresh ginger
  • Pinch freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 tsp honey (I use Manuka honey)
  • 1 tbsp hot (not boiling) water


  1. Grate turmeric and ginger using a microplane zester.
  2. In a heat-proof glass, add turmeric, ginger, pepper, and honey.
  3. Pour hot water into the glass and stir to dissolve honey. 
  4. Add orange juice and stir to combine. Drink and feel better!


  • You can substitute ginger powder and turmeric powder for fresh, if you’d like, using ¼ tsp ground turmeric and ⅛ tsp ground ginger per shot.
  • I use manuka honey, but any honey will work here.
  • If you’d like to make multiple shots at a time, mix 4 tsp honey, 4 tsp grated turmeric, 1 tsp grated ginger, ¼ tsp black pepper, ¼ cup hot water, and 2 cups orange juice. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator and drink one shot daily. 
  • Use gloves when grating the turmeric to prevent staining your hands. To remove turmeric stains from my hands, I usually rub them with lemon juice and then wash with soap.
