Crazy Healthy Instant Fizzy Turmeric and Spicy Ginger Beer

I am always thinking of ways to dress up my water. Slices of cucumber, raspberries, pieces of ginger, and big fat wedges of lemon. Don’t get me wrong I love water, after a jog feeling tired and hot, water in its simplest form is refreshing!

However, I love flavours and water is the perfect vehicle for an injection of taste. And in the case of turmeric and ginger it also benefits our health to add a bit of jazz. An interesting way to use plants.

Turmeric has a crazy powerhouse of health benefits! If you don’t already know what they are here is a quick list.

Turmeric is high in Curcumic which helps will the following:

  1. Powerful anti-inflammatory
  2. Strong antioxidant to neutralise free radicles
  3. Promotes brain health good to treat and heal Alzheimers
  4. Slows spread of cancer in the body even killing cancer cells
  5. Alleviates depression
  6. Can help arthritis symptoms
  7. Anti ageing
  8. Lower risk of heart disease

In light of this positive list I thought instead of just Turmeric tea why not Turmeric and Ginger Beer (not exactly traditional). These flavours sing in a curry so why not a healthy fizzy beverage and you don’t have to brew it. A healthy homemade soda.

If you are feeling adventurous and thirty for flavours take the Turmeric plunge!
