This drink could change your life. I don’t say that lightly either. I see it as a little miracle beverage.
Turmeric is a spice that is golden yellow… almost orange in color. It is well researched and known for anti-inflammatory qualities. Many people hear about the benefits of turmeric and ask me about how to use it or put another way, what to put it on.
Sure, we can take a supplement, however turmeric really works best when consumed with a healthy fat and also when used as a raw spice.
If you’ve been reading my blogs or working with me, you’ll see that I’m a big advocate for healing the gut, supporting the liver and boosting immunity. If we are open to the possibility that trying something new, that can impact or improve our general immunity, detoxing ability and gut health, will help us to experience powerful changes within our body for years to come.
I would like to introduce you to “Golden Milk” . It’s something that I drink personally and even share with my young son.
If you are someone who likes that connection and warm, healthy feeling of a good tea… try this out.
It gives some relief for colds, flu’s and coughs.
It helps support your gut best when you take it on an empty stomach either upon waking or before bed.
Turmeric has antibacterial and antiviral properties.
Do you have digestive issues? Pretty much all digestive issues from candida, intestinal parasites to leaky gut or IBS could benefit. Turmeric Milk or Golden Milk is a good place to begin.
For those of you taking part in the 18 Day Love Yourself Naked Cleanse Challenge or looking to support your liver to detox or cleanse, there are so many scientific studies centered around the impact of the curcumin within turmeric to prevent and reverse liver cirrohossis and fatty liver.
I addition to all of that, it tastes delicious, at least in my opinion!
Check out the recipe below.
Golden Milk or Turmeric Tea
- 1-2 cans of coconut milk
- 1/4 cup Ground Turmeric to make Turmeric Paste
- 1/2 cup pure spring water or filtered water
- 2 cups of coconut milk (from the can) – do not use the carton of store bought. (I sometimes mix hemp milk for one of the cups).
- 1 tablespoon of Blackstrap Molasses
- 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon Raw Honey
Step 1: Make Turmeric Paste
Put ¼ cup of ground turmeric and water in a saucepan and cook over medium heat and stir continuously for 7-9 minutes. The mixture should become thick. I add drops of water to the thick mixture until I get the consistency I desire. Then, place the mixture into a glass jar with a lid. It will store in your fridge for up to 2 weeks.
Step 2: Making the Milk
In a clean sauce pan, I add 2 cups of milk (homemade milk is best or raw milk), 1 tablespoon of black strap molasses, 2 teaspoons of turmeric paste, 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and 1 teaspoon of honey (optional). Heat and stir over low to medium heat for 2 minutes. Enjoy!
