Fresh ginger turmeric lemonade recipe made with whole foods: fresh ginger and turmeric root and a touch of black peppercorns to boost the absorption of curcumin and stimulate the taste buds.

This homemade turmeric lemonade is as wholesome as it gets. I used whole peeled lemons, fresh turmeric and ginger roots, plus a pinch of whole Malabar peppercorns. Yes you guys, I added black pepper to the lemonade and I promise you won’t even know it’s there. 

I’ve experimented with a few variations of this recipe and finally decided this is the best way to make it and get the most benefits.

Vegan. Gluten-Free. Oil-Free.


Initially I started making it for the Batman so he can stop complaining about inflammation after his workouts. But then I discovered how delicious and refreshing it really is and I’ve been making it on a regular basis. There’s always a bottle or big pitcher of it sitting in our overstuffed fridge now. 

Try experimenting with some blackberries, raspberries, blood oranges and even adding a jalapeño into the mix.

No matter how hard I try to capture the beauty of this golden turmeric color, one can’t really appreciate its beauty unless seen in person. That gorgeous yellow color is all thanks to the curcuminoids compound found in turmeric. If using dates to sweeten your lemonade just know that the color will change a bit and become darker.

  1. The video didn’t show the whole content in the ingredient list. I thought it was 1 lemon until I read the ingredient. How would you proportionate to single serving? Lemon rind is remove for this recipe right?

    1. Yes the lemon rind is removed to prevent the lemonade from turning bitter. I’ve never just made one glass of lemonade but you can just divide the recipe by 6 and use those amounts to your liking.

  2. Not a big fan of turmeric but I can drink this lemonade all day long. Very delicious and Quenching, I did add agave to sweeten.

  3. Very refreshing! I juiced the lemons, added some calamansi juice and some ginger and jalapeno simple syrup, blended and than strained the pulp and it was just lovely! Thank you!

    1. Please consult with the doctor that prescribed your medication, I am not qualified to give medical advice, all I can tell you this is a natural healthy drink but do not know how it might interfere with any prescription medication. Hope that helps ~ Florentina.

        1. I encourage everyone to use a cruelty free sweetener, there’s nothing in honey that your body needs at all, it is only a superfood to baby bees. Agave and maple syrup work great here 🙂

  4. Simple and delicious! I made it exactly as written with the dates for sweetening and even my sweet-tooth husband enjoyed it! I’m sharing it in my holistic health Facebook group now. Thanks!

  5. Florentina, thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe. How many days could it be stored in fridge? Or is best to drink in one day? Any recommendations on how many times a day is good to drink? On empty stomach?

  6. Can you put the everything through a juicer first then add to water? I don’t have a great blender but I do have a wonderful juicer.
