WHAT THE SPICE? | WHAT IS GOLDEN MILK AND WHY DO I NEED IT IN MY LIFE?
I love a hot beverage.
Morning, evening, summer, winter - any time is tea time - and Golden Milk is a favourite.
Golden Milk originates in India, where export and consumption of turmeric trumps all other countries worldwide.
Why would that be?
Well, turmeric is a proven natural health heavyweight containing the active ingredient curcumin, the benefits of which are increased 2000 fold when used in conjunction with black pepper.
The major strengths of Curcumin include:
- Anti-inflammatory (maintains immunity and reduces inflammation)
- Improves brain function
The list goes on!
So, why not give Golden Milk a try?
This beverage is delicious hot (maybe in the evening with a cozy blanket and a good book!), or iced on a warm summer day.
Let me know what you think!
1 cup milk (I prefer full fat coconut)
3 tsp fresh grated Turmeric powder (or 1 tsp turmeric powder)
2 tsp honey (or sweetener of choice)
1 tsp fresh grated ginger (1/2 tsp ginger powder)
1 pinch cardamom
1 pinch cinnamon
1 pinch clove
1. Pour milk into a saucepan, on medium-low heat until hot. Keep an eye on it! Milk has a tendency to boil over.
2. Add all fresh and/or powdered spices
3. Turn down the heat to low and allow to steep at least 10 minutes.
4. Strain and sweeten
