May 2021 - #090 - Use This Recipe to Detox by the Spoonful

Hi Everyone. Welcome Back.

This month I’d like to refresh and repost a simple recipe that I shared back in 2016.

I have received a ton of traffic on this detox recipe page lately for people who are trying to cleanse and get their bodies healthy again.

The biggest complaint is this darn pandemic. So many people have fallen into the rut of overeating and/or drinking more often than usual.

This is why this recipe has become so popular lately. People want to get healthier as we are getting closer to returning to a normal life.

I love the fact that not only are people trying this recipe and adding it to their everyday lives, but they feel better and are actually benefiting from it.

That is why I am reposting it this month. After all, the world is slowly returning to normal and I want to feel my best when we can go out and socialize again, visit family and perhaps even travel.

This simple recipe helps detox the body and quite simply makes you feel great.

It’s easy to make and all the ingredients that you need for it can be purchased at the supermarket and/or health food store depending on what kind of stores are available to you where you live.

You see, I wanted to create something that would help detox the body, improve digestion, increase metabolism and improve circulation, but without a whole lot of hassle or inconvenience.

I made this recipe an all-in-one spoonful of goodness that has all day benefits.

I started to take 1 plump teaspoon of this recipe every morning and at supper.

As the days slowly passed I started to feel more energetic and my digestion and circulation improved. I also love the feeling of my cheeks turning blush from a warm feeling I get after eating this stuff.

But another amazing thing happened. After about 20 days of regularly taking my “homemade medicine” I noticed that the pain and problems I had with my bones and joints had diminished (I had a car accident at age 16 that left me with lifetime problems and pains).

Now it did not take all my pains away, but it really reduced them by A LOT.

So I urge you to try this recipe and you can also make larger batches of it depending on how many family members would also like to use it.

So here it is:


1/3 cup homemade horseradish - for my recipe click on this link How to Make Homemade Horseradish

4 – 5 garlic cloves cleaned

3 index finger size fresh turmeric - peeled

1 large thumb end of fresh ginger - peeled

½ - 1 tsp. of freshly ground pepper

2 tsp. of cinnamon honey – or regular honey will do too

This recipe makes just over ½ cup and is good for 1 person for about 10 days’ worth approximately. It’s easy to make double or triple size batches if needed.

So I use these ingredients for this recipe. The honey doesn’t half to have cinnamon in it, I just like the flavor of it and cinnamon also provides certain health benefits.

Whichever honey you choose to use, just make sure it is REAL honey. (there is a link farther down this page if you want to read more about "What is Real Honey").

The honey is mainly to make this recipe more palatable. When I first started to experiment with these ingredients I didn’t use honey at all and I still managed, but it’s definitely nicer with a little natural sweetness to combat the potency of the other ingredients.


Before you start cleaning your ingredients, lay a piece of newspaper on the counter. This will come in handy because turmeric stains everything.

That’s why I started using plastic gloves when cleaning turmeric because it took days before that orange-yellow color would finally fade away from my fingers and hands.

You can use either a peeler or small knife to remove the skin from the turmeric and ginger root.

Once the garlic, turmeric and ginger are clean make sure you have set aside a 1/3 cup of horseradish.

Cut all the garlic, turmeric and ginger into small pieces so it will be easier to chop up in the chopper or blender (which ever you have).

Take the horseradish, turmeric, garlic and ginger and place into a chopper (or blender). I purchased this cheap little chopper just for this purpose because turmeric stains everything. This little chopper was around $15.00.

Then add some freshly ground pepper into the mixture, about ½ - 1 teaspoon worth. You must add the freshly ground pepper because turmeric is only absorbed properly by the body if it is combined with freshly ground pepper.

This is weird but true. There are literally thousands upon thousands of scientific studies that show that black pepper enhances the health benefits of turmeric by 2000 %. Wow, that is just such a huge number and these studies have been proven, so we add the black pepper.

Not to worry because black pepper offers a long list of health benefits that help with weight loss, respiratory and digestive disorders and offers antibacterial and antioxidant qualities.

I call this a win-win combination.

Now add the honey.

Let the machine grate and chop it up until it’s similar in consistency to the horseradish or even a little smoother if you prefer.

You will have to take a spoon or spatula and scrape down any of the mixture that has stuck to the side of the container.

Now mix again until all ingredients are well blended. You may have to do this a couple of times depending.

Now scrape the ingredients into a glass jar of your choice.

Once complete the mixture looks like mushed up baby food. It may not look inviting, but it will definitely be inviting to your body and organs.

These are all liver loving foods, so your liver will definitely thank you.

Store this in the fridge and enjoy 1 plump teaspoon twice daily. You can decrease or increase this amount depending on what you think is the right amount for you.

All the ingredients are healthy, so if you want to eat a little more of this “homemade medicine” it will be good.

Increase the recipe by doubling or tripling all the ingredients depending on the size of your family.


I like to take a spoonful of this right before I eat breakfast and then again before supper. You can eat it on an empty stomach or with food. You will have to figure out which way works well for you, either way just get it in you.

You must experiment and decide what time of the day is best for you. It’s healthy no matter when you eat it, so just choose a time and stick with it daily and make it part of your routine.

If you don’t want to chew this mixture (as it can be strong) you can just wash it down as fast as you can with some water. That’s what I usually do most of the time.

There is no harm in changing this recipe. If you prefer more garlic then add it, want to add cinnamon then go for it. You get the idea.

You don’t have to add honey, but I find it makes the mixture much more palatable, but please use real honey if possible.
