If this anit-inflammatory busting juice could speak I’m sure it would say something like ‘hell yeah its good to be alive!’.
If you ever need to start your day with a power boost, need something to help prevent or sooth inflammation and want a juice that will leave you feeling anything is possible then this is the juice to do it.
So I have been experimenting again with my juicer and this is now another firm favourite and one I hope you’ll enjoy too.
Bursting with flavour and a fantastic energy boost this orange juice could re-define orange juices, dare I say so myself.
Makes one generous glass of juice
Place the following in to your juicer:
- 3 x oranges (ideally organic)
- 1 x 1 inch of ginger root (ideally organic)
- 1 x 1 inch of turmeric root (ideally organic)
- 1 x apple
- 1 x celery stick
Notes: This juice is best enjoyed immediately. One word of caution turmeric can stain but apparently can be removed with lemon juice.

I’m gonna try it! Love all that good stuff!
Thanks Susan. It’s amazing how much goodness a few pieces of fruit and toot can provide. Enjoy!
And THINK how it would work as a hangover cure 😉
Oh yes, I haven’t tried that yet!
Great combo, yes, turmeric can be a pain in the tush. I will try lemon juice next time.
Thank you. Are you not a turmeric fan because it can stain?
Oh no, I love it and use it in fresh and dried form, I have lightly stained a countertop before so will try lemon juice if it happens again! 🙂
I should have at least one a day due to the anti-inflammatory benefits! Sounds yummy
Thank you I really love it, not that you’d notice from my post and created it too for the anti- inflammatory benefits and have noticed a difference! Added bonus is that it tastes amazing too 🙂
@cheergerm, oh good 🙂 I don’t think my brain was fully engaged this morning when I read your comment!
Great post and information! I don’t have a juicer but will try this with my Nutribullet! Thank you! 🙂
Thank you Catherine. I haven’t heard of a Nutribullet! I’m off to check that out.
I received this wonderful gift from my son last year. Just like juicing, I never would eat the amount of fruits and veggies I drink in one smoothie. 🙂
Oh, thank you so much for this!!!! I am going to buy the ingredients this afternoon! It’s really a health booster and must be delicious!
It is. Happy shopping and happier drinking 🙂
Thank you!! 🙂
This looks delicious! I loved the specific information you provided about each ingredient. I’m excited to experiment around with these ingredients as well as try the Firestarter Juice!
Thank you. In going to do this on every post now. It’s a great juice. Enjoy!
Lovely. Simple. Colourful. Powerful.
Thank you Kellie, and thanks for stopping by.
This looks fantastic!! Makes me wish I had the ingredients right now. 🙂 Mmm ginger…
Thank you. The ginger and turmeric really give the orange juice a powerful and fantastic flavour.
Question please Tabitha. No one in our area carries turmeric root. I have seen dried turmeric root. Do you think I could use dry turmeric root? Thank you for your opinion! 🙂
Hi, I would think so, worth giving it a try. Sorry not to be definite but I’ve never used dried turmeric root and without trying it myself I wouldn’t like to say 100% let me know how you get on?
Thank you for your response. I’m going to see if my son can track down at a farmers market in the city! I tend to agree with you that fresh root would be preferred. Let the hunt continue! lol Have a great day!
Good luck with the hunt and have a wonderful day too. I brought mine from a UK organic food store…so maybe wholefoods or somewhere similar might sell in the US?
I thought for sure we would be able to find at wholefoods or fresh markets, no luck! Stay tuned!!!
As a big fan of Smoothie’s I was looking for something different and this looks great. Thanks! 🙂
Thank you. I will be posting a smoothie recipe this week 🙂
