Turmeric Lemonade

May 1st, 2020 Drink of the Week

orange fizzy drink

Turmeric is a bit of a wonder spice, packed full of health benefits for the body and brain. Apparently it’s one of the most potent natural cure-alls. So this drink is not only fun to make and yummy, it’s also incredibly good for you. And, best of all, easy.

Ingredients (for two large drinks):

1 tbsp powdered turmeric
2 tbsp honey or maple syrup
Juice of 1 lemon
4 cups fizzy water


Mix the turmeric, honey and lemon juice in a small bowl (I had to stir this mixture for quite a while to dissolve the honey).
Pour half of the mixture into a large glass then top up with 2 cups fizzy water.
