Recreating the Morning Meditation Juice from First Watch restaurant at home is a delightful experience that combines nutrition, flavor, and visual appeal. This homemade version is easier to prepare and does not require a juicer.

Personal Testimonial

Initially, I wasn’t a fan of beet juice, but over time, I’ve come to enjoy it. The homemade Morning Meditation Juice provides a significant energy boost, often outperforming coffee or energy drinks in my experience.

Nutritional and Health Benefits

The ingredients—ginger, turmeric, orange juice, and beet juice—are not only appealing but also highly nutritious. The combination can make one feel superhero-like due to its health benefits. Beet juice is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals and is known for improving stamina and lowering blood pressure. Turmeric contains curcumin, which has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Ginger aids digestion and reduces nausea, and orange juice is high in Vitamin C and known for boosting the immune system.

Ingredients and Customization

The original ingredients include ginger, turmeric, orange juice, and beet juice. I use turmeric and ginger from my spice cabinet, specifically organic turmeric powder. Occasionally, I omit ginger due to personal preference.

Sweetness and Flavor Adjustments

First Watch adds agave nectar, but I find that Simply Orange Orange Juice is sweet enough without additional sweeteners. For a visually appealing drink, slowly pour beet juice over the turmeric orange juice to create a layered effect.


Here’s how to make your own version of Morning Meditation Juice:


  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup beet juice (or more to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried ginger (optional)


  • Whisk turmeric powder and ginger (if using) into the orange juice.
  • Pour the turmeric orange juice over ice.
  • Slowly pour beet juice over top to create a layered effect.
  • Serve immediately.

Variations and Tips

Explore potential variations by adjusting the amounts of each ingredient or incorporating fresh ginger and turmeric if preferred. Offering tips for sourcing quality ingredients might be helpful, such as recommendations for organic or freshly juiced options.
