TROPICS FOOD by TROPICS MAGAZINE – Ginger’s anti-inflammatory properties can aid digestion and offer a slew of other health benefits. Find out how to make this delicious, uber-healthy ginger juice recipe.

Juicing has taken off as a health trend, and everything from apples to cucumbers and even carrots can be juiced! One of my favorite juices comes from fresh ginger root, a powerhouse healthy ingredient. Read on for our favorite ginger juice recipe, and a guide to the potential benefits of ginger juice.

What Is Ginger Juice?

Ginger juice is made from the liquid content of fresh ginger root. It’s made by juicing grated fresh ginger. You can drink it (more on that below), or use it in recipes that call for fresh ginger.

The Ginger Juice Benefits You Should Know

Ginger has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial qualities, which may offer a variety of health benefits:

  • Ease digestion
  • Calm motion sickness or nausea
  • Ward off colds and sickness, and ease symptoms like congestion
  • May calm headaches or joint pain
  • Freshen breath

How to Make Ginger Juice

You’ll need:

  • A few pieces of fresh ginger root, peeled
  • Cheesecloth

Step 1: Grate the ginger root

Using a fine grater, like a microplane zester, shred a few large pieces of ginger.

Step 2: Squeeze

Place the grated ginger into a cheesecloth and give it a good squeeze into a bowl, much as you’d squeeze a lemon for juice. If your ginger is nice and fresh, plenty of juice will drip out.

You can also press pieces of fresh ginger into a garlic press to extract juice.

Step 3: Enjoy!

You can drink your ginger juice directly, or add honey to balance the flavor. If the ginger is too spicy for you, try diluting it with water; hot water turns the ginger concentrate into a tasty tea.
