Ginger shots. They’re one of the few things that gives me a jolt of mental clarity without caffeine. But since I don’t have a juicer I had to figure out how to do it on my own. Here’s how to make ginger shots without a juicer..

Ginger shots are a great pick me up for those mid-day blues. I tried my first ginger shot on the streets of Amsterdam when I was jet lagged and extremely tired. I was amazed at how good it made me feel.

Now, you can pay a hefty price for ginger shots at your local juice shop, or you can just make them right at home. Since ginger is so cheap at the grocery store, these ginger shots will literally cost you pennies! Once you see how easy it is, there’s no going back to buying them individually.

I like to make them in my Nutribullet Pro because of it’s small size, but almost any blender will do the job. You can certainly use a Vitamix or Blendtec if you choose, but just make sure you’ve got enough ginger for a larger container.

  • 1 medium piece of ginger
  • 1 lemon optional
  1. Use a spoon to peel the ginger. Simply place the ginger on a cutting board and scrape the spoon away from you against the skin of the ginger. It doesn't have to be perfectly peeled, but remove as much of the skin as you can.

  2. Cut the ginger into manageable pieces to make it easier for the blender to turn it into pulp.

  3. Place the ginger into the blender cup/jar and pour just enough water so that it covers the top of the ginger. If using lemon juice, add 1/2 squeezed lemon per medium piece of ginger along with the water.
