Turmeric Cooler

When I found this organic turmeric at the grocery store the other day, I squealed like a little pig!

Just the thought incorporating it even more in my diet is a dream come true.

I knew the first thing I wanted to do with the turmeric was kiss it… haha, just kidding.

Actually, I wanted to make juice!

Turmeric has the ability to reduce inflammation in the body naturally.

Did you know the inactive ingredients in different forms of over-the-counter medications include artificial food coloring made from petroleum, artificial sugars, sodium benzoate, GMO’s, propylene glycol and parabens?

These are ingredients I wouldn’t normally put into my body – and most definitely don’t want to subject my body to when I’m trying to recover from something.

When I had a bad accident a couple of years ago, I did not take painkillers long term, and I took turmeric in pill form to help my body to heal naturally. And I would not be sharing this story, unless it freaking worked! To this day – whenever I have an injury – I turn to turmeric.

But that’s just the icing on the cake – Turmeric has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat a number of conditions and scientists believe that one of the reasons why turmeric is so powerful is that it contains curcumin. Its beneficial properties have been the subject of thousands of peer-reviewed and published studies

So now that I’ve hopefully convinced you to try this root…. I need to tell you that juicing turmeric can be really tricky. If you use too much – the juice can end up very bitter and not at all pleasant to drink.

I experimented with a few different blends that don’t use fruit juice or sugar (like most recipes call for) because I wanted to find a way to drink this all the time without having to consume the additional added sugar.

The blend that worked is so REFRESHING.  The coolness of the cucumber and romaine worked like a charm…. I hope you can find fresh turmeric root where ever you are… because this juice is the BOMB.

  1. All those claiming “dont play doctor” , “turmeric is good but sometimes prescription drugs are needed” etc etc.. These people were ignorant from the start. Yes ignorant..if they werent ignorant they wouldnt have health issues. Compare indian health to american citizen health and thats your answer… I also highly believe there are people on internet forums making posts to deliberately get you away from natural and believing in the artificial. They do it on topics of health.love.science.especially politics to influence you to the wrong way. People call them trolla but that word is now misunderstood. Its even more of a conspiracy than that.. People want americans dead…end of story. Because you dying is a money maker and you dead is a money maker still. Hospitals are connected to funeral homes in a bad way sometimes…depending. Bottom line….listen well to yourself and go natural..if listening to your bodys calls is a challenge or you dont get any calls…then you obviously really need to get on the natural because odds are youve been artificial too too long. In health thus mind…

    1. thank you, this I am finding to be true, that there are negative posts out there trying to lead you back to the insanity of modern medical lies… back to the earth is what will save us, our minds, bodies and spirit… thank you!!!

    How often should you drink this tonic and how much? Every 6 hours? Every 8 hours? Every 12 hours? 8 oz? 10 oz? Just whenever you feel like you need it? That can be tricky if pain is ever present. What do you say?

    Thank you,
    H20Babe

    1. I added some mint and it took away the bitterness of the Tumeric and made it more refreshing. More carrots would overwhelm the taste and add unnecessary sugar.

  3. Hi, Just read this and I will try it. I love turmeric. I use it in everything. From rice to chicken. I suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and have been trying to ease it naturally. I would recommend buying it fresh or in powder form at a local Indian market if you can. It is a lot cheaper. Be well.

  4. Can this be frozen. And should 2nd serving be chilled until next use? How long does it keep?
    Thanks so much for all you do. 🙂

  5. Curcumin2K® – do you recommend this supplement? If not what turermic supplements do you recommend?

  6. Sadly, I live in a food desert and have not seen fresh turmeric anywhere. Can this “cooler” be made with the powdered version? Anyone have a recipe with this substitution? Thank you!

  7. Guys, one thing to remember with turmeric is Not to overdo it. My sister is an Ayurvedic physician and mentioned that turmeric has “heating” , anti biotic properties. The best way to use it is a quarter to half teaspoon in cooking. Let it bloom in hot oil and then add your veggies, meat etc. drinking warm milk with a quarter tsp of turmeric is very healing. The powder form is very potent and if you are using it in smoothies don’t exceed quarter tsp.

    1. If you go read up on it, you’ll find the main contraindication of supplements like turmeric or cur-cumin supplements is if you are on a blood thinner. You must not just start doing anything until you consult with your physician.
      It’s great to be able to consume something natural for health, but we don’t need to see anyone
      risk having a hemorrhagic event; just because it’s natural doesn’t necessarily mean it’s 100% ok for all people.
