I am so excited to be sharing today’s turmeric juice recipe with you all! I seriously make this pineapple ginger turmeric juice at least once a week, I try to drink a glass a day. Why? It’s so easy, affordable, and healthy! I’ll admit I am a little recent to the juicing game (normally a smoothie person!), but I have been absolutely hooked recently. There was definitely a learning curve to figuring out how to make delicious cold pressed juice recipes. However I think I have finally mastered making the best turmeric juice!
What is cold pressed juice?
Like I previously said, I am new to the juicing world. If you asked me a couple months ago what is so great about cold pressed juice? I don’t think I could have given you a solid answer. However, I dove deep into learning about cold pressed juices, and it’s truly amazing! A cold pressed juice is a juice that’s fruits and vegetables are crushed slowly and never heated. By keeping the juice cold, it retains more nutrients. It is so important to make sure that you are making cold pressed juice whenever making recipes like this turmeric juice recipe, because you want to retain the highest amount of nutrients possible!
What makes this pineapple ginger turmeric juice recipe so healthy:
The first key to making this pineapple ginger turmeric juice recipe is using a cold pressed juicer (see below for the one I use!). The second key is using quality ingredients. What does quality ingredients mean? In my opinion, quality ingredients means organic and nutrient dense. This turmeric juice recipe checks both of those boxes!
Why choosing Organic is important:
To be blunt, I just recently started opting for organic produce. I’ve been a whole foods plant based vegan for almost four years, and I just discovered how important eating organic truly is. We always hear that it is important to buy organic, and that the pesticides used in conventional produce is horrible for you. But what is it that makes it so bad?
I didn’t know until someone explain it to me like this: when you eat produce that is sprayed with pesticides you are therefore eating the pesticides. Pesticides kill bugs. Our gut microbiomes are full of good bugs that help our bodies function properly. When you eat produce that contains these pesticides that kill bugs, you are killing your gut microbiome. Therefore you can take all the probiotics and gut health supplements in the world, but it won’t make a difference as long as you are eating conventional produce.
This had me shook! I’m telling you I have had the ick ever since then about conventional produce, and I am now making an effort to buy as much organic produce as possible!
Choosing nutrient dense produce for this turmeric juice recipe:
I am going to be blunt again: turmeric is not a delicious flavor. Honestly I low key hate turmeric (except in my Simple Chickpea Curry of course!) However turmeric is insanely healthy. It is one of the best sources in the world for fighting inflammation and is also loaded with antioxidants that help fight free radicals. What about ginger and pineapple? Ginger is great for stimulating digestion, and is anitbacterial! Pineapple is loaded with vitamin C (and delicious of course!).
How to juice turmeric:
There are plenty of ways to enjoy turmeric. You can grate it and use it in curries, or blend it in smoothies. However my personal favorite way is to make this turmeric juice recipe. I love this cold pressed turmeric juice, because it is so easy! For the longest time I hated juicing, because cleaning the juicer was so difficult. However ever since I upgraded my juicer it has been the easiest way to eat turmeric. All you have to do is throw it in the juicer and you are good to go!
Best cold pressed juicer:
What juicer did I choose to upgrade to and why? I upgraded my juicer to the Kuvings Whole Slow C7000 Series. This juicer has seriously changed my life, and I am not even being dramatic. How? It’s simple. This juicer has allowed me to reduce my food waste, consume foods I otherwise wouldn’t have, and boosted my daily nutrition! I do this by making simple recipes like this turmeric and ginger juice recipe.
I love how easy it is to use and more importantly clean! To clean this juicer you just have to use the brush and water! It seriously only takes a couple minutes. Not only does this juicer make delicious cold pressed juices like this turmeric juice recipe, but it can also make nut milks and sorbets! Since upgrading to this juicer I started making my own nuts milks, which has been a dream of mine since going vegan. As always, my code: “NATURALVEGAN” gets you $40 off your Kuvings order!
How long does this turmeric juice recipe keep?
Kuvings cold pressed juicers are great for so many things, but one of my favorites is the ability to keep in the fridge! When you use a quality juicer to make recipes like this turmeric juice recipe, you can store your juices in the fridge for longer periods of time. This pineapple ginger turmeric juice recipe stores in the fridge for 72 hours! It may be hard to keep it around for that long though, because it is so delicious!
