Golden milk is a wonderful turmeric infused hot drink orginating from India. Turmeric has amazing medicinal qualities. It is anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and supports immune function.
The pepper helps the body to absorb the medicinal properties of the turmeric. I often have this drink if i am feeling a bit run down and it always makes me feel better! Its also a perfect bedtime drink.
1 cup of milk of choice (I use almond milk, but coconut milk would also be delicious)
1 tsp turmeric
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Pinch of black pepper
1 tsp raw honey/xylitol/rice malt syrup
Warm up the milk in a saucepan, adding the turmeric, cayenne and pepper. Using a whisk give it a good mix, this also makes it pleasingly frothy! Bring to a simmer and then pour into your cup. Stir through honey or sweetener of choice.
