Jamu Juice (Indonesian Turmeric Drink)

Jamu Juice (Indonesian Turmeric Drink)


¾ cup fresh turmeric root (about 100 g), washed and sliced (you may leave the skin intact)*
1 large piece fresh ginger (about 4 inches), washed and sliced (you may leave the skin intact)
4 cups of filtered water
1 pinch freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp honey
2 lemons, juiced (or 3-4 limes)


1. Place the turmeric, ginger, water, and pepper into a blender. Blend on high until the mixture is completely smooth.
2. Pour the mixture into a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Lower heat and continue simmering for 15 minutes.
3. Once the mixture is done cooking, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly before pouring it through a fine-mesh strainer (or cheesecloth).
4. Add the honey and lemon juice, and serve chilled. The mixture will separate naturally while chilling, so give it a gentle stir before serving.

Serves 6

*Note: If you don’t have fresh turmeric on hand, don’t worry. Use 1 tbsp ground turmeric in place of the fresh turmeric root in this recipe and enjoy!
