There are yogis, and then there are yogis’ yogis. And Amy Ippoliti—co-founder of 90 Monkeys, an online destination for teachers looking to hone their skills and grow their classes—is the latter.
Boulder-based Ippoliti’s become one of the country’s most recognized yoga teachers. That’s probably because, she’s on Yogaglo, she’s got it together on Facebook, and she’s even looking back at you from the cover of Yoga Journal. (Clearly, there’s a reason why other teachers wanna hear what she’s got to say.)
Outside of yoga (and her expanding empire), one of Ippoliti’s biggest passions is juicing, and this green turmeric limeade is a fave. It offers a “huge hit of anti-inflammatory goodness from the turmeric,” she says, “combined with tart and refreshing flavor from the green apple and lime.” Serve it chilled on ice as an inflammation-banishing alternative to sugary limeade. —Jamie McKillop
Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric Limeade
3 or 4 handfuls baby spinach
2 celery stalks
1 green apple
3″ fresh turmeric root (best when plump, orange-colored, and Hawaiian grown)
If you’re using a masticating juicer, juice all ingredients, and enjoy!
If you’ve got a centrifugal juicer, put the celery in first and plunge. Put a cucumber in without plunging, fill the space around it with baby spinach, then plunge. (This allows the spinach to get juiced, rather than spun through the juicer.) Do the same with the turmeric, then juice the apple, and finish with the lime. Enjoy immediately!
