Happy Monday! I hope this finds you well.
I wanted to share with you today my ‘Turmeric Tea’ recipe as it has been an absolute saviour for me on my GAPs journey.It is super simple to make, just blitz and add to hot water as you need it. Perfect to sip on any time day or night and just so good for you! I personally love it with double the ginger but the kids aren’t massive fans of ginger, so I have decreased the quantity for them. I hope you love it as much as we do!
200g fresh turmeric
100g fresh ginger *
150g coconut oil *
a REALLY good pinch of black pepper
Place all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz on high until completely combined and as smooth as you can get it.
TMX: Speed 7 / 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides, then a further 1 minute / Speed 4.
Add 1 teaspoon to hot water to make your tea. It is lovely hot or cold as an iced tea.
If you have a tea strainer, it is best to put it in this, otherwise you can drink it without one but you might just have a few ‘bits’ in there.
- if you love ginger you can increase this amount to 200g
- the coconut oil I used was soft but solid (not runny)
- store in a glass jar in the fridge for many weeks
- be careful if using this mixture in a white cup etc as turmeric does stain
- GAPS friendly

The food you eat is not the only thing that affects your digestive system. Stress is another major factor.
