After drinking mint tea with honey en masse, we then switched to ginger tea. Nice with a slice of orange or lemon, hm! Ginger has many health benefits and has been used for centuries to solve diseases and ailments. But honestly, it's nice to have some variety in our taste palette. That is why we have listed 5 alternatives to ginger tea for you. This way you keep the variety in it and you get your daily dose of nutrients. Check it out!
Ginger chai tea
Easy peasy, add some cinnamon, cardamom and cloves to your ginger tea. Add a splash of milk and you're done! OR… add some ginger to your chai latte. Just as easy.
Ginger latte with anise
You can make this drink with fresh ginger or dried ginger (for example I.AM.CAPS Ginger). Heat 250 ml almond milk with honey (or agave syrup), dried anise and 1 tsp coconut oil. Add the ginger (shot) to this and your ginger latte is ready to serve!
Ginger juice with turmeric
There's no better pick-me-up than a fresh ginger shot in the morning. Now you can buy this ready-made, at your supermarket or, for example, from Dr.Detox, but you can also get started yourself. Blend for example 500 ml of cold water, 100 grams of ginger, 1 tbsp turmeric and a pinch of black pepper in a blender and then strain it into a bottle. You can keep this mixture sealed for 7 days. Did you know that ginger and turmeric descend from the same plant family? Both contain antioxidants such as curcumin. So go well together!
Both an alternative to ginger tea and an alternative to coffee: Golden Latte! This heartwarming drink originates from Indian culture, where it is regularly drunk for all the health benefits of turmeric. The spice mix of turmeric, ginger and cinnamon warms and is perfect to start the day or as a pick-me-up in between. You can easily make this by supplementing your I.AM.CAPS Turmeric with almond milk, a pinch of cinnamon and a few slices of ginger. Enjoy! P.S a dash of honey or agave syrup is also delicious!
Matcha/Ginger iced tea
Best of both worlds, both matcha and ginger are packed with nutrients to boost your immune system. Matcha is a concentrated variant of green tea, making it a great base for iced tea and a perfect alternative to ginger tea during hot days. Use 1 capsule of I.AM.CAPS Matcha for an espresso shot of matcha. Top up with 1500 ml of warm water, juice of 1 lemon, 3 cm of ginger (peeled), 5 tbsp agave syrup and mint leaves. Let cool, add ice cubes and enjoy!
