This warming spicy delicious drink is a wonderful easy way to gain the many benefits of an earthy golden spice...turmeric, which has been revered since ancient times for its healing properties. This contains pure organic cinnamon also which is used for many issues including properties which can lower glucose levels as well as increase circulation and digestive issues just to name a few. Pepper has been added as it contains piperine which greatly increases the absorption of turmeric.
It is especially enjoyed before bedtime as it is relaxing and can help give your immune system a boost while you sleep. Turmeric has long been associated with the production of enzymes that detoxify the liver and promoting a more free flowing bile that actually cleanses the liver. We are all bombarded with pollutants on a daily basis and while the liver is a very strong and capable organ to handle all the assaults it receives it is best to help it out when we can.
This beverage can be made with water but for a completely creamy and exotic healthy warm drink it is best enjoyed with any number of different milks such as: almond, pecan, coconut, cashew, any dairy milk and even bone broth if you are not a milk drinker. It can be sweetened to tone down the somewhat bitter taste of the turmeric with a few drops of a pure vanilla, coconut or any extract of your choice. Honey or blackstrap molasses are also good choices to enhance the flavor of this healthy beverage. With this basic recipe the add on choices are infinite and well worth experimenting with to customize it to just your taste.
Simply add 1 heaping teaspoon to a cup of your milk of choice, mix well perhaps with a mini whisk and heat till warmed and enjoy!! Depending on how much you add this should make about 30 cups of ancient golden milk....
a note of caution however.....the turmeric can stain clothing and countertops as well as cups, it does fade away but if spilled on the cabinet you can use a paste of water and baking soda and it should remove it .
