Ginger is a healthy addition to any diet, and many juices benefit from its spicy flavour. Straight ginger juice is quite potent, and just a teaspoon goes a long way. The juice can be used in small amounts as an herbal remedy for indigestion and a source of extra vitamins. Pure ginger juice can be made by squeezing peeled ginger through a garlic press and pressing the pulp through cheesecloth. Add honey to the mixture if you wish to sweeten the strong, spicy taste.

Slice off a piece of ginger 1/4 inch long. Peel the ginger by pressing the edge of a spoon across its skin. Push the spoon into the folds of the ginger in order to reach the skin inside.

Chop the ginger into small chunks.

Press the chunks through a garlic press over cheesecloth. Allow the juice to seep through the cheesecloth into a bowl below to remove the extra chunks.

Add the peeled ginger to a juicer if you wish to skip the grater and cheesecloth process. If using a power juicer, it is not necessary to dice the ginger into fine pieces. Juice the ginger according to the juicer's instructions. Add 1/4 cup water if the mix is too pulpy.


Consume the ginger by mixing with honey or adding it to other juices.
