Golden Milk

Turmeric is said to be one of worlds healthiest spices. Many people take daily supplements of it for Inflammatory Bowl Disease, Arthritis, Cystic Fibrosis, Alzheimer's disease, and Cancer prevention and treatment. Its a wonderful anti-inflammatory, source of vit B6, iron and magnesium; and is known to lower cholesterol. There's so much to this amazing spice. Rather than taking pills of it which seems so boring and tedious, cook with it, and better yet drink it! 

The first time I ever had this delicious drink was at Kundalini Summer Solstice.  A week of Kundalini yoga and meditation out in the hot desert. You would think that a hot drink in the desert is not what you would prefer, but it was a welcoming treat to everyone at the end of each day.  Ever since its been a staple in our house. I keep a mason jar full to use in oatmeal, tea, coffee or drink just as it is. We all love it. 

Golden Milk Ingredients: 

Milk
Turmeric
Cardamom
Cinnamon
Ginger
Black Peppercorn
Coconut Oil
Honey
 

Use milk of your choice. I use an almond non-sweetened vanilla milk. And sometimes make with fresh almond milk I make which is surprisingly super easy. The spices can be fresh or powdered. I have done both. Remember to be generous with Turmeric, as it is the main ingredient. Supposedly, black peppercorn increases the absorption of Turmeric significantly. 

P.S. If you accidentally mistake your Curry Powder for Turmeric like I recently did. Go with it. It's a perfect substitution for caffeine. The spicy kick is a nice awakening.
