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.

Drink and Enjoy!  You'll feel healthier with the first sip!  To read more about ginger read this fabulous article about The 22 Health Benefits of Ginger Root & Ginger Tea, from one of my favorite blogs, Bembu.

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!

The February 9 cooking class is full, but there is still room in the Vision Board Workshop!  If you're interested in signing up, just click shop above!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
