Jamu Juice

A sour and tangy combo, this tonic perfect solution for cold or seasonal allergies. Versions of this recipe have been used in Balinese medicine for hundreds of years!

Ingredients: 

  • 2 oz fresh ginger, unpeeled
  • 2 oz seedless tamarind block
  • 2 tbsp Nurture My Skin blend
  • 1 Liter water
  • 1/4 c maple syrup
  • 1.2 c fresh lemon juice

How to make:

2. Heat up 1 L on the stove on medium heat. Drop in the tamarind block to make the tamarind concentrate. Add the ginger puree mixture and simmer on low for 20 minutes. 

3. Let the mixture cool then strain through a fine-mesh sieve or milk bag. 

4. Pour the juice into a pitcher. Add the maple syrup, lemon juice, and Nurture My Skin blend. Mix and enjoy!

" I love to practice mindful eating in a capitalistic world, meaning that I try to be very present with my food. It is hard to do that when you see everyone else around you doing the complete opposite: eating at their desk while working, eating at meetings, or just simply not being present. I think wellness is overall being in the moment, listening to your body and what it needs, and feeling good about yourself."
