The Immunity Shots Recipe
Let’s delve into the heart of this fantastic recipe. To make the Anti-Inflammatory Immunity Shots, you’ll need these easily accessible ingredients:
- Oranges – Packed with vitamin C and immune-boosting properties, oranges add a delightful tangy sweetness to the shots.

- Apple Cider Vinegar – A potent elixir that balances the body’s pH levels and supports a healthy gut, reducing inflammation and promoting overall well-being.
- Ground Turmeric (or Fresh Turmeric, if using a glass blender) – Celebrated for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, turmeric is a true superhero in combating inflammation and supporting the immune system.

Instructions for Making the Shots
Creating these Anti-Inflammatory Immunity Shots is incredibly simple. You don’t need any specialized equipment, just a blender and a sieve (or a cheesecloth bag) to strain the mixture. Follow these steps:
- Peel the oranges and ginger, then add them to the blender along with apple cider vinegar. Blend the mixture for a few minutes until it reaches a smooth consistency.
- Strain the liquid by passing the blended mixture through a sieve or using a cheesecloth bag. This step ensures a silky-smooth texture, free from any fibers or bits.
- Add ground turmeric and black pepper to the liquid. If you have a glass blender, you can add fresh turmeric instead, but be mindful of potential staining.
- Thoroughly mix the turmeric and black pepper into the liquid, elevating the shots’ immunity-boosting power.
- Divide the concoction between six small bottles or one big bottle for convenience. Start each day with a shot to kickstart your morning on a healthy note.
Here are a few more ways to reduce inflammation through your diet:
- Add turmeric and black pepper to your curries, stews, and soups.

- Snack on nuts and seeds to benefit from their anti-inflammatory properties.
- Consume a variety of colourful fruits and vegetables, which are rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients.
