Recipes / Sunday, October 27th, 2019

Have you ever heard of Jamu? It’s an Indonesian health juice full of health benefits and (I think) it’s super tasty as well. It’s made of kurkuma, ginger, honey, lime, black pepper and water and makes a great tropical health shot.

The Health benefits:
– Anti-inflammatory
– Natural liver detoxifiere
– Kidney cleanser
– Cholesterol lowering
– Boosts immunity

So, how do we make this magic potion?


-125g fresh turmeric root
-20g fresh ginger root, a large finger sized piece
-4 tbsp fresh lime juice
-1tbsp honey
-pinch of black pepper

I personally use a slow juicer for the turmeric and ginger and once that is juiced, I add the lime juice, honey and black pepper. To this I add some boiling water to mix it all up but you can also drink it chilled! Enjoy and let me know what you think!
