Good Morning Sunshine Turmeric Shots

August 22, 2023

Ah is it just me or have the winter germs been extra bad this year?! We’ve got a quick and easy way to get all the good stuff into you and your little ones! Basically all you do is blitz up these ingredients and then freeze the liquid into ice cube trays. When you’re feeling run down, pop one of these into a mug, top with hot water, and add a little drizzle of honey. It’s the best way to start your morning and you’ll be feeling better in no time! 


5 juicy Lemons (zest and juice) 
100g Fresh Ginger 
100g Fresh Turmeric  
½ tsp cracked Black Pepper 
Turmeric is known for helping inflammation and for its antioxidant properties.  
Lemon is packed with vitamin C and can have anti-viral properties.  
Ginger has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.  
Black pepper is helpful in reducing inflammation and helps enhance the healing properties in curcumin, the active ingredient of the turmeric (by 2,000%!)  

Time to Get Cooking

1.  Peel the lemons (try not to get the white part in) and blitz these in a blender until all blended up into tiny pieces. Alternatively, zest all the lemons.  
2. Juice lemons.  
3.  Add blitzed lemon peel, turmeric, and ginger and blitz until it begins to form a paste.  
4.  Add in lemon juice and black pepper and blitz to combine.  
5.  Spoon into ice cube trays. Freeze until solid.  
6.  Add one turmeric ice cube to a mug and top with hot water. Drizzle in honey for sweetness (omit if your child is under 1)

Luvme Eco is truly a close-knit, family-owned business and today, it’s our birthday! Woo hoo! Luvme began nearly 14 years ago when Kendall and her mum, Laurie, were confronted with the fact that every year 1.5 billion disposable nappies end up in landfill in Australia every year! They knew they had to find a solution that was kinder to the Earth, for future generations. The first eco nappy was born not long after and the rest is history!
