Golden Turmeric Milk (non dairy)
Recipe type: Healing Beverage
Serves: 1 serving
Anti-inflammatory, allergy busting, immune boosting creamy elixir.
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) nut milk. I use coconut milk or almond milk. Full fat coconut milk will make this very rich, so I recommend light coconut milk unless you want a thicker, rich drink.
  • ½ tsp (1 full tsp if you're brave) ground turmeric
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp grated ginger root or ¼ tsp ginger powder
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Honey to taste (1 tsp usually does it)
  • cayenne to taste (optional, good if you have a cold)
  1. Add milk to saucepan and warm over medium-low heat.
  2. Whisk in other ingredients thoroughly until it reaches your desired temp. DO NOT boil.
  3. Pour into mug and enjoy. You can strain grated ginger out if you want.
  4. Alternatively you can mix everything together in a blender or immersion blender and warm it in the microwave.
  5. Doubles or triples easily if need be.
