A warm healing hug in a mug for cool evenings, when you're ill or anytime of the year!
Golden milk, also called turmeric tea, is a warm drink that has been used in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine for centuries, but has lately made a name for itself in the Western world. The uses of golden milk are extensive, and it is prized for its unique blend of ingredients: coconut milk, black pepper, and turmeric. This simple, yet powerful recipe has the power to create a wave of positive effects on the body, and it is no surprise the interest in turmeric has skyrocketed as a result. After all, this one drink has antioxidant properties, is anti-arthritic, and can help prevent cancer among an array of other conditions. To better understand what makes this drink so potent, it is best to look at what is in it.
The turmeric, cinnamon, ginger and pepper are all digestive aids and anti-inflammatory spices!
I highly recommend mixing the spices with a fatty milk (coconut or almond) for a healthier version, to fully enjoy both the taste and the healing benefits. Fat acts as an emulsifier, which binds to the spices: this allows your taste buds to fully enjoy the flavors and your digestive tract to absorb the healing benefits.
🥄 2 teaspoons turmeric
🥄 1 teaspoons cinnamon
🥄 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
🥄 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger.
🥄 1/2 teaspoon of honey (add more for added sweetness)
Mix all the spices together in 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. Mix well!
Pour 3/4 cup boiling water over the mixture and mix well. Fill the rest of your cup with a milk of your choice. The more milk you add, the creamier it will be.
🍯Add local honey for sweetness!
Sit back and enjoy!
