  • Juicer


  • 4 small apples cored, roughly chopped
  • 2 cm fresh ginger root peeled, roughly chopped
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric optional, increase to preference
  • pinch black pepper optional


  • Feed the ingredients through your juicer (add the turmeric and black pepper, if using, with the apple) into a bowl or large glass. Pour into your glasses and serve immediately!


  • Add the turmeric (if using powder) a sprinkle at a time along with the apple and ginger pieces, rather than separately.
  • For a less intense juice you can dilute with a little water.
  • Both the turmeric and the black pepper are optional. Black pepper is higher histamine (see below) so my low histamine readers may wish to leave this out.
  • Please note that nutritional information is offered as a courtesy. It is auto-generated and should be understood to be an estimate.
