Most people by now have heard that tumeric is a great anti-inflammatory but most people only associate it with curry. Here’s a recipe a friend shared with me that is actually really good. It’s like a warm milk with a chai sort of taste. It gives that comforting feel and it actually good for you so drink up! This recipe is courtesy of Wellness Mama so I want to be sure to give them credit!
- 1 can coconut milk and 1 can of water (I use 2 cups Silk Coconut Milk instead)
- 1 tsp tumeric
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- pinch of black pepper (it helps the tumeric absorb)
- small piece of ginger (if you leave this whole you can take out which I prefer)
- raw honey to taste (raw is soooo much better)
So blend this up first (whisking doesn’t work very well). If you want to take the ginger out like I do, don’t add it into the blender just throw it in the pot. Then heat 3-5 minutes til warm but DO NOT BOIL. You will want to drink this pretty soon.
I keep the spices premixed in a small container on my stove so blend and heat and I am ready to roll. This is also nice on colder mornings. Enjoy the drink and the benefits!
