HOW TO MAKE GINGER SHOTS

Making wellness juice shots at home takes about 10 minutes start-to-finish depending on the amount of shots you make.

  1. Prep Ginger and Fruit – peel and chop fresh ginger, pineapple and lime
  2. Juicer – push the ginger, pineapple and lime through the tube feeder on a juicer.  If you don’t have a juicer, then blend all the ingredients in a high speed blender and strain though a fine mesh sieve and discard any remaining pieces of fruit and ginger.
  3. Pour – pour about 1/3 cup for each shot

I typically juice up a whole pineapple at a time with about 6 1-inch pieces of ginger and 2 – 4 limes and then pour the shots in these little containers that I purchased at Smart and Final.  The pineapple sweetens the taste a bit and makes it a little easier to down the ginger juice in a shot.
