If you like freshly squeezed orange juice, then you are sure to love this drink. This is a citrus explosion that takes classic orange juice to a whole new and healthy level. It's the perfect zesty juice to start your day and boost your immune system.
juice of 4 oranges
juice of 1 lemon
juice of 1 lime
1 inch of fresh ginger root
1 inch of fresh turmeric root
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
pinch of Himalayan salt
pinch of cayenne pepper

Juice or blend the citrus fruits, ginger and turmeric together. You can juice the citrus by hand and then blend or put everything peeled through a juice extractor. I highly recommend using rubber gloves for peeling turmeric and cleaning your juicer, as it stains your fingers and all surfaces, so be cautious!
Then add 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and a pinch of pink Himalayan salt and stir well. Transfer into a sterile glass bottle or jar. Store in the fridge for up to 10 days. (It barely lasts that long in my house!)
Take 1 'shot' sprinkled with a pinch of cayenne pepper, preferably every morning before breakfast for flu' prevention. Cheers to your good health!
