These days you scroll through instagram and see all the health gurus walking around with their healthy smoothies and juices. They tell you about how healthy they are and how much health benefits those smoothies bring you. So, you decide, I want one too. Because who doesn’t wants to be healthy right? You are all ready and go to the shop where all the gurus go, and then find out one juice costs $10. You buy them once, they don’t even taste that great and you easily spend loads of money.
So, if you are done with spending all your money on a good booster, or you are interested in how to create one fresh at home? Keep on scrolling.

Golden sunshine shot
Ever had a bloated stomach after having eaten too much the night before? Feeling a little guilty about having a binge? This healthshot will make you feel better in no time.
- 1/2 lemon squeezed
- 1 tsp. ginger powder or fresh shredded ginger
- 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
- 1/2 tsp. turmeric
- dash of black pepper
- splash of water
How: Squeeze the lemon into a little shotglass. Add the ginger, cayenne pepper and turmeric and give it a good stir. Then add the black pepper and a splash of water. Don’t add too much water or the shot will be hard to take down at once.
Why: The lemon and ginger are really good for detoxing and antioxidating. The lemon is perfect for calming your stomach and the turmeric is also a good detoxer. The ginger is good for relieving nauseau and inflammation. The cayenne pepper boosts your metabolism, helps digestion, lowers your bloodpressure and helps reduce hunger. The turmeric reduces inflammation, is highly antioxidating, improves brainfunction, lowers the risk of heart disease, shows increadible benefits against depression and delays aging.
“Put yourself at the top of your to-do list every day and the rest will fall into place.”
- 1/2 lemon
- (ginger, if you like)
How: boil the water and squeeze the lemon into the water. I like to use fresh lemon but you can also use plain lemon juice from the store. I like to just put the juice in but you can also choose to put some slices of lemon into your water. Make sure to get the lemon seeds out beforehand.
Why: I drink this cozy drink EVERY morning. It is a really good detoxifier. It stimulates weightloss and improves your immunesystem. It also benefits skinhealth, promotes dehydration and lifts your mood.
- Block of ginger (peeled)
- 1/2 lemon
How: Put the ingredients all together into a blender and blend until there are no more chunks (make sure to stir around to check if the ginger is fully emerged). Then get a sieve and lay it on top of a jar. Pour the liquid onto the sieve and press a little with a spoon. You can throw the pulp away and enjoy your fresh celery juice!
Why: celery is a very good source of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. It is packed with vitamins and is very hydrating. It is good for digestion and a good source of fiber. The lemon and ginger makes it extra refreshing and hydrating.
- Milk foamer
- Milk (soy, oat, almond, or whatever you like)
How: Foam the milk and add some turmeric and honey. The turmeric makes it taste really fresh and the honey gives it a sweet taste. The warm milk is just the cherry on top. (Btw, you won’t actually taste the milk-taste. I usually HATE drinking milk but this drink is just amazing.”
Why: like mentioned above turmeric reduces inflammation, is highly antioxidating, improves brainfunction, lowers the risk of heart disease, shows increadible benefits against depression and delays aging. The honey improves heart health, wound healing and blood antioxidant status.
