A powerful, refreshing citrus juice with added turmeric for great anti-inflammatory properties.
Delicious, local and fresh fruit like coconuts, watermelon, papaya and mango are abundantly available on the island of Curaçao and all taste 100 times more glorious than any tropical fruit I can find in London. In fact the citrus fruits on Curaçao are particularly flavorful and there wasn’t a day we did not have an awa di lamunchi (lemonade). So to celebrate my stay on Curaçao I though I’d recreate and share a recipe I discovered and fell head over heels in love with whilst on there. It is made with grapefruit and oranges as well as turmeric – a super potent anti-inflammatory spice, popular in Indian and Pakistani cuisine.
Super Citrus and Turmeric JuiceKimberly Espinel
- 3 organic grapefruits
- 6 organic oranges
- 1 tsp ground turmeric
- Juice the citrus fruits (I used an electric citrus juicer. What a hand juicer it make take a little bit longer to make this quantity of juice). Put through a sieve to get rip off any 'bits' (optional step). Add the teaspoon of turmeric, stir and serve. Consume as soon as you make the juice to avoid losing any vitamins. That's all folks!
