When I first saw the Ginger Nectar recipe, I thought it would be difficult for me to drink because, as you know, ginger has an aromatic, pungent, and spicy taste. Well, it’s not hard at all. This recipe is perfect for ginger lovers and anyone looking for a new way to use it. Did you know that fresh ginger root is available year-round in the produce section of your local market?

The effects of Ginger

The Authority Nutrition has described Ginger as one of the healthiest (and most delicious) spices on the planet. Their description goes on to say that it is loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds that have powerful benefits for your body and brain. Do you agree? I agree, and I believe so should you.

After making this drink, I promise you that you will throw away your store-bought ginger drinks and start making this fresh Ginger Nectar. Making Ginger Nectar is so simple to make that even a child who is at the age to use a knife in the kitchen and also the stove will be able to make it. No need to add more preservatives and chemicals to your body. This recipe is so natural that you can even close your eyes and enjoy it.

How to make Ginger Nectar

Making Ginger Nectar requires a sweetener, and it is up to you to use what you prefer. I use organic sugar, brown sugar, or coconut palm sugar. I prefer not to use honey or agave because neither melts entirely. I say that because you have to juice the ginger with a sweetener and add more when mixing it with hot boiling water. You will be able to sweeten the ginger nectar when it is hot but not when it is cold with honey or agave.

This excellent ginger drink can be enjoyed hot or cold. By the way, I don’t think I mentioned this earlier; Ginger Nectar is a great iced tea for hot days. It may warm your body a bit but think about the benefits of ginger. I use this same drink in my smoothies, shake it if necessary, and when I am juicing.

One of the best tips I can share when making this drink is to use a powerful blender or a nutrients extractor. It is necessary to convert the ginger into a liquid form entirely.
