Healing golden milk

Healing golden milk

This little powerhouse of a drink is packed full of antioxidant & anti-inflammatory compounds with well-documented health properties for both body & skin.

It's simple to make & stores well. It's a must in my household as the winter cold kicks in & our immune systems, skin & joints need extra nourishment.

Curcumin, the active component in turmeric has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries for its anti-inflammatory properties to ease joint pain.

Ginger & cinnamon are both immune boosting tonics & wonderful for the skin as they increase blood flow & reduce inflammation. All of the above have been documented as improving overall brain health, digestion, lower blood sugar levels & improve mood!

I like to have this at night to help me unwind, slow down from the day's happenings & get my body into a restful state for sleep.

 

INGREDIENTS 

POWDER

1/2 cup tumeric powder

1 tbsp ground ginger powder

2 tsp ground black pepper 

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp ground cardamom

 

DRINK INGREDIENTS

1 cup milk or plant milk of your choice

honey or maple syrup to taste

 

METHOD

To make the powder, mix the powder ingredients together & place in an airtight jar. 

To make the drink warm 1 cup of milk on the stove top gently. When warm add 1 teaspoon of the Golden Milk powder & use a whisk to mix through giving it a good whisk to create a little froth. If you have a frother, now is the time to put it to work. 

Add honey to taste & drink immediately. 

The dry mix will store for up to 6 months before the spices lose their charm.
