How To Make Golden Milk
It’s the latest healthy drink (even if it has been around for a long time.) We’re sure it’s even on Starbucks radar! We’ve tried it and noticed how much better we feel after 3 days of drinking this golden wonder. Turmeric is known to reduce inflammation and a myriad of diseases (for more information on its many wonderful properties, check out the list here: http://www.healthdiaries.com/eatthis/20-health-benefits-of-turmeric.html). Most disease processes in the body have an element of inflammation and turmeric is a strong anti-inflammatory that you can actually feel working! Golden milk is a delightfully tasty way to include turmeric and other wonderful ingredients into your diet.
Here are 2 great ways to prepare it. (Note:Turmeric stains)
Golden Milk Ingredients
2 cups of milk of your choice (almond, coconut, goats)
1 teaspoon dried turmeric (or one-half inch fresh turmeric thinly sliced or diced)-Not all tumeric tastes the same. Some are more bitter. It may take a few tries to find one that’s right for you.
1 teaspoon dried or fresh ginger
1 dash of black pepper
Sweetener to taste. (Stevia, honey, coconut sugar)
Place milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Add turmeric, ginger, and pepper. Stir well if you are using the dried spices. Let the milk begin to simmer for 5 minutes and stir with a wooden spoon. Be aware that turmeric stains. Strain if you have used fresh ingredients. Serve warm and enjoy. Can be made in bulk for 3 days.
