Start your day with this bright and tangy Ginger Immunity Shot. This recipe is easy to make, and is high in vitamin C to boost the immune system. You only need a few simple ingredients to make this healthy juice that you can take as a wellness shot.

  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x


  • 2 naval oranges, peeled and chopped into large slices
  • 1 lemon, with the peel cut off and cut into quarters
  • 1 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, with the peel cut off
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • pinch of cayenne pepper (about 1/8 teaspoon)
  • pinch of ground turmeric (about 1/8 teaspoon)


  1. Gather your ingredients and cut the peel off the oranges, lemon, and ginger.
  2. Feed the orange slices, lemon slices, and ginger through your juicer. Pour the juice into a jar and stir in the apple cider vinegar. 
  3. Or, if you want to make this recipe in a blender, combine the peeled and chopped oranges, lemon, and ginger in the pitcher of a blender and blend for 30 seconds. You may need to add 1/4 of water to help the ingredients blend smoothly. Then, strain the blended mixture through a nut milk bag to help filter the pulp. Pour the juice into a jar and stir in the apple cider vinegar.
  4. To serve the immunity shot, pour it into a small glass and sprinkle the top with the ground turmeric and ground cayenne pepper.
  5. Enjoy immediately.


  1. You can make this recipe in a juicer or a blender.
  2. Store any leftovers in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours. This juice shot is best served immediately after making it to get the most benefits. 
  3. Feel free to use lemon juice or lime juice in this wellness shot.
  4. If you also want to add some live probiotics, feel free to stir in a tablespoon or two of ginger kombucha just before serving. The probiotics have health benefits including gut health. 
  5. You can drink this juice as part of your daily routine, not just during flu season.
