How do you eat ginger? If you’re like most people, you might add it to your stews or soups when cooking. Well, there are plenty of other beneficial ways to consume this powerful herb.

Making ginger drinks is an easy way to enjoy all ginger health benefits. Plus, it will allow you to drink more water. According to research, ginger can reduce morning sickness and improve your mood. So take these drinks in the morning to stay energetic throughout the day.
1. Homemade ginger ale

Are you trying to quit soda? Ginger ale is the perfect soda substitute. This naturally fermented drink is sweet and fizzy. Ginger ale contains probiotics and enzymes that can help relieve digestive issues. And it will also give you all the health benefits of ginger.

Note that this beverage can contain alcohol if fermented for a long time. So brew it for a short period.

Lastly, don’t drink more than 4 ounces a day if you don’t usually drink fermented drinks. Drinking large amounts can cause stomach upset.

2. Ginger tea

Unlike ginger ale which takes long to ferment, ginger tea can be prepped in less than 20 minutes.

Fresh ginger and water are the only ingredients you need to make this tea. But feel free to add lemon juice, honey, cinnamon or other spices if you want to make the tea tastier.
3. Ginger detox drink

This detox drink is almost similar to ginger tea. But you won’t need to boil the water for this recipe.

Simply mix finely grated ginger with lemon juice and water. Then strain the mixture and enjoy. Drink this in the morning to stay energetic and keep your mind clear.
4. Mango ginger turmeric smoothie

This smoothie contains two of the most nutritious spices: turmeric and ginger. And it’s very filling because it has mangoes, oats and greek yogurt.

Here are other smoothie recipes you may want to try.
5. Pineapple ginger juice

I always advise against drinking fruit juice because it’s high in calories and lacks fiber. But I’ll make an exception in this case.

To make this drink you need fresh ginger, freshly squeezed lime and fresh pineapple juice. No need to add the sugar in this recipe.
6. Pear ginger smoothie

Make this recipe when pears are in season. You’ll need greek yogurt, spinach, almond butter, ginger, honey and unsweetened almond milk.

Just toss all the ingredients in a blender and blend until the mixture is smooth.
7. Pomegranate ginger detox drink

You can’t go wrong with a combination of pomegranate and ginger. Pomegranate has been proven to support heart health, fight inflammation, and even lower risk of cancer.

Ingredients include fresh ginger, pomegranate, lemon, and water. Blend the ingredients and strain the mixture before drinking.
