Golden Milk

Flu season has been no joke. Having kids in elementary school and an office job is practically the same as living inside a petri dish.

I don’t want to get sick, and I don’t want my kiddos to get sick, so I’ve been eating raw garlic until my breath bursts into flames, and then cool it down with clementines and water. When I want something *really* wonderful, I make Golden Milk. It’s a sweet and spicy chai-like creamy drink. It’s golden, because of the turmeric, which has amazing anti-inflammatory properties. It does wonders. Make it. Drink it. Brag about how earthy you are. Recipe below.

Golden Milk, to make 1 really big cup, or 2 small servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups coconut milk, unsweetened (or your milk of choice)
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Turmeric Powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • a small chunk (about the size of your thumbnail) of raw ginger, peeled
  • a pinch of black pepper (this helps your body absorb the turmeric)
  • honey to taste (I prefer about 2 teaspoons, at least)

In a blender (or using an immersion blender), mix all of your ingredients together. Pour into a small saucepan and slowly heat, just before boiling. Add honey to taste. Pour into your favorite mug. Sip. Ahhh.

Stay healthy, friends!

Cheers! –Nicole
