Ginger juice is a tasty and healthy addition to your morning smoothie or tea! This ginger juice has lots of health benefits plus adds a nice flavor to you drinks!
How To Make Ginger Juice!
Making ginger juice is really easy. I first started making it because I heard of all the health benefits but then realized I really enjoyed the flavor it added to my tea.
Health benefits of ginger:
- Relieve nausea
- Is an anti-inflammatory
- Helps lower/regulate blood sugar
- Help indigestions
- Help lower bad cholesterol
- Helps brain function
- Help fight infections
It truly is an amazing food!
Making ginger juice is incredibly simple. The most time-consuming part is straining it- that’s it!
How to make Ginger Juice:
- Peel your ginger
- Add ginger to a high-powered blender or food processor.
- Add 1 ½ cups water to the blender or processor and process on medium high for 30-45 seconds.
- Strain the liquid through a mesh strainer.
- Dilute the ginger juice to the potency you want.
How to use ginger juice?
I like to freeze the juice in an ice cube tray then pop an ice cube or two into my tea or smoothies! You can also drink it straight- but I recommend diluting with extra water so it’s drinkable, otherwise it will be awfully strong!
You can also use it in soups, or stocks for an added flavor and health boost!
How to peel ginger?
You can use a potato peeler but I really like using a spoon. Hold the spoon facing away from you (so you see the back of it) and press the tip onto the ginger. Scrape the peel away with the tip of the spoon- it will come off really easily!
But I do enjoy exploring some of these interesting food items that turn out to be healthy.

How To Make Ginger Juice
- 1 medium size head of ginger
- 1 ½ cup water plus more for diluting
- Peel the ginger. I like to use the tip of a spoon to scrape the outside of the ginger off. It’s actually really easy! (1 medium ginger)
- Add 1 ½ cups water and puree on high for 30-45 seconds. You want the ginger to be processed into tiny bits.
- Using a mesh strainer, strain the ginger juice to remove all the pulp. You can save this for baking into muffins or just toss it.
- Add about 8 cups to the ginger juice concentrate (add less if you want super concentrated, more if you want it diluted more).
- Store in the refrigerate for up to a month or freeze into ice cubes (my favorite way to use ginger juice!).
- Use in smoothies, soups, tea, or coffee!
