My Favourite Hot Detox Tonic

121 comments

I’m feeling particularly nostalgic at the end of this year, mainly because it was our first full year of parenting. This year Adriana blossomed from a 3 month old baby in January into a 15 month old hilarious, chatty, and very strong-willed toddler by December. The change!!! We witnessed first words, first crawls, first teeth, and first steps in 2015. My iphone filled capacity countless times (breathe…), but I still worried that I wasn’t capturing enough. The sheer amount of development, growth, and experiences that we’ve shared together in 2015 are enough to make my eyes well up with tears. Even though I know there were tough times in every area of life, right now I’m reflecting through rose coloured glasses. I hope the memories will stay a part of me in one way or another, even if I wasn’t so great at documenting everything like I did in the early months.

Like every year, I consumed more than my fair share of treats this month. After we got home from visiting family, I found myself at the grocery store stuffing my cart with produce galore and planning homemade plant-heavy meals in an effort to bring back the balance. The great thing about plant-based eating is that it only takes a day or two to get back on track and feel energized once again. I’m not someone who shuns sweets entirely at the start of a year (I love my dark chocolate way too much), but instead prefer to focus on what I’m adding to my diet. Celebrate that stuff!

I love, love, love experimenting with homemade hot tonics, and I’ve been tweaking my favourite concoctions for a few years now. I know anything detox is so cliche this time of the year, but this drink really does make me feel amazing after weeks of indulgences so I don’t even care. In the past, I’ve often used fresh turmeric, fresh ginger, cayenne, and sliced lemon (see my “Healing rooibos tea” on page 69 of The Oh She Glows Cookbook), which is awesome, but it requires a trip to the grocery store, and finding fresh turmeric can be hit or miss. Recipes need to be accessible so I came up with this delicious “pantry” version for those times when I want it now. It’s fast, there’s no grating/peeling involved (unless you opt for the fresh ginger version), and you can keep the ingredients on hand in your pantry (aside from the lemon, but I usually have those miracle workers on hand!) to enjoy any time the craving strikes. Yes, you will crave this drink…it’s that good. I know this is going to be my reset button drink all winter long.

Get ready to feel warm, energized, and ready to tackle the day! This is my new go-to hot beverage of choice when I want to hit the reset button, amp up my metabolism, and boost circulation. It comes together fast with ingredients that I tend to keep on hand. I love to drink this throughout the day, but it’s especially effective when consumed on an empty stomach after waking. I use a ginger tea bag for a quick option, but I provide a fresh ginger option below too. Also, if you ever have some kicking around, fresh mint is an invigorating, tummy-soothing addition.

Yield
2 cups
Soak time
7-8 minutes
Prep Time
Cook time
0 Minutes
Total Time

Ingredients:

  • 1 ginger tea bag or 1/2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger*
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • Few dashes cinnamon, to taste**
  • Few dashes ground turmeric, to taste
  • Few dashes cayenne pepper, to taste (use less if you don’t like heat)
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 small lemon slice
  • Pure maple syrup, to taste (I use 1 teaspoon)

Directions:

  1. Grab an extra large mug or a small teapot (3-cup capacity). Place ginger tea bag inside.
  2. Boil 2 cups of water and pour all the water into the mug/teapot. Cover and steep the ginger tea for 7 to 8 minutes.
  3. Remove tea bag. Set aside the tea bag to cool. Once the tea bag has cooled a bit you can gently squeeze it into the pot to infuse the tea with even more ginger flavour.
  4. Add the cinnamon, turmeric, and cayenne. Whisk until combined.
  5. Add the vinegar and drop in the lemon wedge. Whisk to infuse the lemon.
  6. Add maple syrup to taste, and whisk to combine.
  7. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Tips:

  • * For the fresh ginger version: Pop the fresh grated ginger into a tea ball or mesh tea steeper, and steep tea for about 6 to 7 minutes. Proceed as usual.
  • ** The spices tend to settle at the bottom of the mug/pot. Simply whisk it now and then to redistribute.

Hi Angela,
I love hot tonics especially during this cold time of the year. In fact I am struggling with a sore throat at the moment and as I am writing this I am drinking a mixture of ginger and turmeric tea, but your recipe sounds like it will leave me feeling better in no time. Thank you for the recipe Angela, and have a great start into the new year. I look forward to following your exciting journey in 2016.
All the best,
Lynn

Thanks for asking the exact question I was thinking too! I will going online to Crate and Barrel. So cute! I love anything with the word Detox in it that will brighten my mood, energize me and generally “get me through” but it’s interesting that you drink this tea on an empty stomach. Not to get all graphic on you, but anytime I drink tea on an empty stomach, well, let’s just say the stomach flu sets in. Yet I’m not sick. I hope I’m not sacrificing any health benefits by eating with this tea. Was really excited about the mint too ~ it’s an intrusive plant and has taken over my side yard!!~ I have literally buckets full. If anyone wants any, pop over or send me your address for shipping purposes hehe =) I hate to see waste =)

8 Ruby January 7, 2016

Laura, I don’t think you are sacrificing any health benefits from drinking this tea with a meal vs. on an empty stomach. In fact, ginger and cayenne pepper are excellent digestive stimulants so you are actually assisting your digestive system by drinking this with your food. (Ginger and cayenne stimulate digestive circulation and turmeric is an anti-inflammatory, along with many other health positives.) I have studied naturopathic nutrition and have recently received my certification; these are all excellent health-boosting ingredients to consume. I am so pleased to see so many great recipes on this site that incorporate the use of whole foods and natural spices and herbs!
I can’t wait to try this tonic! Thanks Angela!

As for the mint… that is best contained in a pot on a sunny patio; they are very intrusive, as you know. Basil has a tendency to do the same thing ;)

This looks very comforting right now. Did you drink this when you were pregnant? I’m 22 weeks pregnant, and although I wouldn’t expect you to say definitively whether pregnant ladies can drink this or not, I’m just curious if you used it during pregnancy too.

Also, I have a 2 year old son (about 11 months older than your little girl), and the changes don’t stop! It’s incredible the rate which they develop and grow. This past year with him, from 14 months to now 26 months, has been SO fun! And don’t worry, you will keep those memories of the first year+ forever; more memories will just pile up on them!

Angela, would this work with some ginger lemon teabags? I have some in my cupboard from when I was pregnant, but don’t love it just to sip on (I’ve got heaps of green tea and mother’s milk tea for that :) ). However I would drink it if it was first thing in the morning and combined with the other ingredients. A nice change from my hot lemon water.

Reply

35 Amber December 31, 2015

I’m allergic to ginger – fresh is out and I wouldn’t chance the tea bag. But it’s in sooo many recipes like this – and I understand why, it is really good for you. But for me and others like me; what are good alternatives? Something with close to the same benefits that could be subbed. I was thinking maybe cinnamon tea and leave out the fresh cinnamon but maybe there are other things out there that are also beneficial and would work just as well.

Reply

36 Robyn B @ Modern Day Missus January 1, 2016

Perhaps try some fresh apple. You will still get a kick from the cayenne and apple cider vinegar but the apple will complement these flavors well xx

This tonic was just what I needed! I’m getting over a cold at the moment, and this, coupled with your tomato soup, warmed me right to the bone. I only had fresh ginger and not ginger tea, which I think I preferred as I could make it as spicy as I wanted! ;)

This is THE best tonic I’ve ever had. It’s like a delicious apple cinnamon tea. It’s great cold, too!

Everyday I find a way to get 1 tsp of turmeric into me for its anti-inflammatory benefits. Needless to say, I’m pretty sick of turmeric at this point and sick of my go-to ways of getting that much into me daily. This tonic is something I look forward to everyday now, especially since you can’t really taste the turmeric.

I recommend making a huge batch (with everything but the ACV and lemon) to store in your fridge so it’s easy to use all week long! Just add the ACV and lemon after re-heating.

Thanks, Angela! I’ve been telling everyone I know to make this!

Hi there! Have been a big fan of yours for years and preordered your first cookbook way back when! I started drinking this detox tonic at the start of the year to help cleanse as I am cleaning up my diet (again) and plan to lose a little weight before a yoga retreat in Honduras that I am leading in March.
I’d like to add one thing: in order for the body to best absorb turmeric, it must be consumed with fat. I’ve adding a 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil to the tonic and find it actually improves the taste while ensuring I am reaping all the benefits!

Thank you for your inspiration and Happy New Year!

I drink this all day at work, hot, cold or in-between. I’m now using twice the spices (or more). The intense flavours satisfy my palate much more than weak herbal teas. It didn’t stop me from catching my daughter’s cold tho – darn!

Thanks so much for sharing this recipe, Angela! I’ve been reading about detox teas and wanted to be able to make my own but didn’t know how. Problem solved! Your blog is such an inspiration and I am super excited to try more recipes and keep reading about your experiences.

Thank you I’m looking forward to future newsletters from you. I have your cookbook and love it and looking forward to your new one in the fall
Thank you JoAnn

Hi! I just wanted to say that this detox tonic is incredible! Of course it tastes amazing and makes me feel warm and comforted throughout the day, but it has almost completely healed my reynaud’s syndrome. The combo of tumeric and cayenne has done wonders. Thank you so much for that – and yet another amazing recipe!!!

This sounds great. Im starting a 3 day detox tomorrow in hopes of kicking my bad snacking habits to the curb. Do you have any other detox tips or good breakfast ideas?
Also, excited to hear about the new newsletter. Thanks

This is such a great digestive tonic. Brava!

What is also interesting about these ingredients is separately they all have their purpose and best times to consume. Like hot water and lemon alone first thing in the morning wake up the body like no other. An agni herbs like ginger helps digestion along so to actually maximize the nutrients you digest. That’s why what you drink can define what you eat.

Hi :) this looks and sounds lovely…but I thought the turmeric was soluble in fat, therefore required a tad bit of fats for the curcumin to be absobed.
If you hold any extra info on this subject it would be greatly appreciated!
Cheers!

Hi Serina, I’m not super familiar with the subject, but if you’re concerned about the absorption I think you could try adding a small amount of coconut oil into the tea. Hope this helps!

Can’t wait to try this! BTW, I just order the teapot, so beautiful! I have been looking for a teapot and was in a tea store just 2 days ago and just could not decide, it just was not what I was looking for…I came here today to grab a recipe for dinner tonight and boom, there it was! Thank you for sharing!

Congrats on the pregnancy! I’m 20 weeks so we are not too far apart and wondering if this is safe to drink in pregnancy? I’ve been having a black tea daily and would like to have something hot and caffeine free as I love the ritual of sitting with a hot cup
Of something in the morning and this sounds great.

I made this with a Tazo Organic Spicy Ginger tea bag (which I did Not like alone, perhaps due to the fennel). Had everything else except the cayenne & I Love it! Thinking of trying it with orange as well. Thank you!

I have been drinking this tea since spring, I am keeping my psoriasis under control with this tea. Has any one else had good results with this tea?
