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. My children both love this too – the turmeric is not really detectable and i leave out the cayenne for them…
1 cup of milk of choice (I use oat, almond milk, but coconut milk would also be delicious)
1 tsp turmeric
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Pinch of black pepper
Pinch of ceylon cinnamon
Honey or rice malt syrup (optional)
Warm up the milk in a saucepan, or in your milk frother and adding the turmeric, cinnamon, cayenne and pepper. If you are using a saucepan – give it a whisk to make it frothy! Bring to a simmer and then pour into your cup. If you need to sweeten it then stir through honey or sweetener of choice.
