How to Make Amla Ginger Shot
This amla ginger shot recipe is simple and requires just a few ingredients.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Fresh Ginger Root
- Fresh Amla (Indian Gooseberry)
- Lime Juice or Lemons
- Ground Turmeric
- Ground Black Pepper
- Black Salt
Step 1: Wash amla and remove seeds
Start by washing amla and then remove and discard seeds.
Step 2: Wash, peel, and chop ginger
Next, wash and peel ginger either using a vegetable peeler or a spoon to remove the skin. Then chop it into small pieces.
Step 3: Blend all the ingredients
Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until ginger and amla break down properly.
Step 4: Strain the juice
Finally, strain the juice using a strainer or a muslin cloth, squeezing out as much juice as possible. Pour the ginger shot into a jar or bottle and store it in the refrigerator for up to one week. Shake well before consuming straight or dilute it with water(if desired) every morning on empty stomach.
Storage and Serving Recommendations
- Store the juice in a bottle in the refrigerator for up to a week. Shake the bottle well before use and enjoy 30 ml of shot every day, first thing in the morning (about 20-30 minutes before breakfast).
- Overall this wellness shot is healthy and safe but consuming too much of it in one go could cause heartburn or stomach upset. So, if you are not used to drinking this, start slowly, about 15 ml every day, and increase the dose gradually but do not have more than 30-35 ml each day.
- If you find the flavor strong, try adding more honey or any other sugar-free sweetener.
- You could mix the shot into other drinks such as lemonade, iced tea, or smoothie.
- If you don’t mind the pulp for extra fiber, don’t strain the juice, or else you can use the leftover pulp for smoothies.
