Make This Warming and Healthy Turmeric Detox Tea

This recipe for a Turmeric Detox Tea is a warming tea that will help stave off colds and the flu!  I'm craving warm things right now, and just want to walk around with a cup of this tea in my hand all of the time.  It is a combination of water, lemon juice, turmeric, fresh ginger, honey and cayenne pepper.  I made it last night for my first cooking class...the theme for the class was healthy eating, and it was a hit.

Turmeric has so many healthy properties (read more about turmeric here)!  It's packed with fiber, iron, manganese, vitamin B6 and potassium just to name a few.

For the tea, you will need:

1/2 of a lemon

1 1-inch chunk of ginger root

1/4 teaspoon of turmeric (or more to taste)

honey to taste

cayenne pepper to taste

Boil enough water to fill a large mug or mason jar.   Add ginger (crushed in a garlic press, or just sliced), lemon juice, turmeric, honey and cayenne.  The cayenne pepper and honey add sweetness and spice.

This picture is a sneak peak from the cooking class last night!  I can't wait to share more with you!  We had so much fun, ate some healthy and delicious food and hopefully everyone learned something!
