Amazing “Golden Milk” Turmeric Tea Recipe
Here’s an awesome recipe for golden milk – a super-healthy drink made from turmeric – which is considered one of the best spices in the world for all round health benefits!
This drink contains not only turmeric but also coconut milk, cinnamon, raw honey (or maple syrup) , black pepper, ginger and optional cayenne pepper. All kinds of good stuff, in other words.
Some have described this drink as soothing and relaxing – “like chai without the caffeine”. The chai reference is appropriate, because it turns out that this is an old Indian recipe (except the old Indian recipe made with cow’s milk). Well, now you have further options!
If possible, use fresh, organic ingredients for best results. Another version of the recipe includes the addition of 1tsp of almond oil or coconut oil – but you could probably also add flax or hemp oil – and then blend!
