If you’re a health guru or even just live in Los Angeles, you’ve likely heard of wellness shots. While these miniature beverages do pack a nutritious punch, they also often carry a hefty price tag. Here’s how to harness the power of natural immune system boosters to make influencer-worthy simple wellness shots and kick that winter cold once and for all. 

Making a “wellness shot” may sound complex, but in reality, these are just concentrated doses of ingredients like ginger, turmeric, orange, lemon, and cayenne which have natural cold-fighting properties. To read more about why these ingredients fight bugs so well, read our article on foods that boost the immune system.

So, how does one make a wellness shot? Simple combine any number of the ingredients listed above in a blender, add a crack of pepper and pinch of salt, and blend on high. Then, strain the liquid through a mesh strainer, and voila! You can put the liquid into a container in the fridge or freeze it in an ice tray for easy, single portion storage. 

The recipe is flexible too. Feel free to pick and choose the ingredients of your choice and add in a clove of garlic or oregano oil if you’re feeling particularly adventurous. The recipe is surprisingly simple and will save you from paying for expensive juice shop shots. If you’re feeling under the weather, or just want to take precautionary measures, try making your own wellness shots at home today!
