Turmeric Lemonade - A Spicy Good-For-You Drink

Last summer, I was introduced to turmeric lemonade by my good friend, Bree. Since then, I’ve been drinking it regularly and I’ve also been enjoying turmeric lattes at my local coffee shop. Here are some benefits of turmeric:


juice of one lemon

1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric (I use a little more)

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

dash of black pepper (needed in order to absorb turmeric)

2 drops of lemon essential oil (from spices section of store – not aromatherapy oil)

1 tablespoon pure maple syrup (I skip this, but makes it sweeter!)

3 cups filtered water

handful of ice

– add all ingredients to a large mason jar & stir. Enjoy!

Here’s some info why athletes might want to add turmeric to their diets:
