Now more than ever, it’s important to have a strong immune system to fight off any viruses and bugs. Vitamin C is one nutrient that is very important in supporting the body’s immunity.

The recipe for an Immunity Shot is a great way to get over 50% of the daily recommended intake of Vitamin C. The other ingredients including apple cider vinegar, ground turmeric, and fresh ginger are have immune-boosting and anti-inflammatory properties.

FAQs

How do you make this immunity shot in a blender?

To make fresh juice in a blender, you just need to add the same ingredients to a high-speed blender like a Blendtec or a Vitamix, turn on high, and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture through a nut milk bag to catch the fiber, and then enjoy the juice as a shot.

What juicer do you recommend?

I highly recommend using a masticating type juicer if you want to make juice a lot at home. It’s an investment, but it’s not outrageously expensive. I have an Omega juicer and am very happy with it.

What does this Immunity Shot taste like?

This juice has a very strong lemon flavor, plus a zesty flavor from the ginger and apple cider vinegar. It is best taken as a shot, followed with a sip of plain water to help wash it down.

Can I leave the pulp or do I have to strain it out?

You can definitely leave the pulp if you wish. The texture will be thicker, more like a smoothie, so it is really just personal preference.
