Golden Milk for the Cure

Flu season hit Nashville late this year and is currently in full force.  I got it BAD a few weeks ago and was knocked down for awhile.  I have not been that sick in forever.  It has taken me almost two full weeks to recover.   I discovered this recipe a few months ago and decided to try to concoct one myself when I was sick.  The key ingredient is Turmeric.

Turmeric has many health benefits including reducing inflammation and fighting cancer cells. It has been used in many cultures as a go to in treating ailments such as a cold, skin issues and arthritis.  To learn more about it's benefits click here.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of almond milk or coconut milk.  (I used almond milk)
  • 1 tsp of turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of ginger powder
  • A pinch of pepper (the pepper supports in aiding the body to digest the turmeric)
  • Honey or stevia to taste

Directions

  • Pour the milk and spices into a small sauce pan.  
  • Bring to a simmer and stir often to make sure the spices mix well. 
  • Simmer for 3-4 minutes.  Taste after this time and if it is bitter continue to cook it a bit longer.
  • Pour into a mug or glass and ENJOY!
