How to make Turmeric tea (and detox daily)

how to make turmeric tea

Turmeric is a natural detoxifier and it’s getting rave reviews lately amongst health experts. Today, I want to show you my unique take on how to make turmeric tea. I call this concoction: Turmeric Tonic.

Anti-inflammatory benefits of turmeric are well-known. It’s easy to consume enough each day in this simple-to-make tonic. It can be consumed anytime, but we suggest starting off the morning with it to help get things “moving” (if you know what we mean) and jumpstart the daily detox process from the get-go.

This Turmeric Tonic recipe is from my Thrive Summer Reset, which is a 7-day complete meal plan (recipes to cover you from dawn to dusk). This reset could help energize, kickstart metabolism, lose some pesky weight, and ditch your sweet tooth.

Each morning of Thrive Summer Reset starts with Turmeric Tonic, so I’m going to show you how to make turmeric tea.

    That looks great, but where is the coconut oil you mentioned in your email linking to this blog post?

    I’m allergic to nuts. What can I use in place of coconut oil?

    if I’m not mistaken, there are no nuts in coconuts, it is a fruit

    My friend is allergic to tree nuts and coconut is among the nuts she cannot eat. If you’re allergic to peanuts but not tree nuts you should be fine. But if you’re not sure I would avoid it (or ask your doctor).

    Great post, thank you, Jen!
    I’ll definitely try that.
    Honey loses its benefits once it’s heated above like body temperature, so maybe just use maple or agave syrup.
    All the best, Tina

    Hi, I don’t see the coconut oil listed in the recipe, but you mentioned it in this morning’s email. How much should I use?

    I personally used 1 tsp and blended everything together and that was pretty good. The consistency was a little frothy after blending it, which I like.
