Servings: 4 servings


  • 2 medium apples, quartered and cored I like a sweet-tart variety like gala or pink lady
  • 1 large carrot scrubbed
  • 1 small lemon ends trimmed, skin on and quartered
  • 2 inch piece ginger peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses
  • 1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric or 2 inch piece fresh turmeric
  • 3 cups water


  • All all ingredients to a high speed blender and blend, using the soup setting. If machine doesn't have soup setting, blend on high until thoroughly liquified about 2-3 minutes and then gently heat on the stove over medium medium. Taste and adjust sweetness as necessary.


If you prefer a lighter textured tonic, you can strain out the pulp but I prefer to enjoy all that wonderful fibre to give my microbiome a boost! 
You can also totally opt to drink this unsweetened if you wish.
