Recipe: lime, lemongrass and ginger cordial

My Nutri Ninja has been a massive hit. Not only do I make breakfast smoothies which help massively with my hatred of weekday mornings, but I have perfected a few juices and cordials which are helping my current non-alcoholic ways- such as this lime, lemongrass and ginger cordial.

Lime, Lemongrass and Ginger Cordial

A few weeks ago I bought one of those dine in for £10 deals from M&S. Because I’m not drinking I had the lime and lemongrass presse. It was very good, but it could make quite a dent on my wallet if I bought it on a regular basis. So I decided to give something similar a go at home.

It would be easy to make more of this at once- just multiply the ingredients and maybe add less water as your mixer gets full. The supermarket limes here are a bit small at the moment. If you live near a good market or in warmer climes than Manchester then snap up a bag full and get juicing. Lemongrass Spice Drops are great because there are no woody bits, but if you can’t wait to get a bottle online, mince your lemongrass very finely with a grater before adding it to the mixer.

I only use a bit of sugar as I like it tart – you can add more to taste. As I want to keep it quite healthy I will be experimenting with adding leaves from my new stevia plant when it is a bit bigger.

Lime, Lemongrass and Ginger CordialI think this would also be great frozen in ice cube trays if you are making lots and plopped out into glasses of water or even in a G&T or white wine and soda in the summer.  It really is very refreshing. One quantity made enough for four large glasses for me.

Lime,  Lemongrass and Ginger Cordial

A healthy, refreshing cordial made in the Nutri Ninja. Perfect for summer!


  • 1 lime: zest and flesh
  • Ginger: approx. 1 cm, peeled
  • Lemongrass Spice Drops: 2 drops or ½ tsp fresh lemongrass
  • Sugar: 1 tsp
  • Water: 300ml


  1. Place all of the ingredients in your blender cup and blitz for 1 minute. I use the ultra blend setting on my Nutri Ninja- just make sure there are no big pieces left in it.
  2. This is quite a tart mix. If you want it sweeter add more sugar.
  3. Pour into a clean jar or jug and store in the fridge. To use, add to a glass as you would cordial. Top up with ice and soda water, or maybe lemonade if you would like it a bit sweeter.


Easy to scale up - just add less water the more limes you put in. Try using a mix of limes and lemons for something a bit different. Keeps in the fridge for at least a couple of days or freeze in to ice cube trays and add to water or cocktails for a tangy hit!
