We would like to share a recipe for an ancient, inflammatory Ayurvedic drink. Making a cup of Golden Milk is one of the best ways to incorporate turmeric in your everyday life.
Tips: Drink before bedtime and you’ll sleep like a baby afterwards.
Ingredients (serves 2)
300 ml of milk (use any kind; rice, soy, almond etc.)
Turmeric (1 inch fresh or 1/2 tsp dried)
Ginger (1/2 inch fresh, thinly sliced)
1 cinnamon stick (3 inches)
1 tsp coconut oil
1 pinch of ground cinnamon or cardamom for serving
Optional: 1 tsp sweetener (honey, maple syrup or agave syrup)
Heat the milk and stir in the turmeric, ginger, coconut oil and the sweetener. Bring to a low boil and reduce the heat for about 10 minutes (remember to stir occasionally). Finally, strain everything through a fine-mesh sieve into your favorite mug and top with a dash of cinnamon.
You can choose to use fresh or dried turmeric for this recipe, but keep in mind that you need to stir well before you drink if you’re using the dried version, as this will settle in the bottom of the mug. You can storage the drink in the fridge for up to 5 days!
