Spiced Golden Milk

Turmeric (The healing spice) is a nutritional powerhouse. Unlike many other supposed ‘superfoods’, Turmeric has been around for thousands of years and it is here to stay. My most favourite way to consume turmeric is in the form  of ‘Golden Milk’, a potent anti-inflammatory hot drink with absolutely insane health benefits. These health benefits include:

  • Fights Respiratory illness
  • Fights cancers
  • Super antioxidant
  • Aids Digestion and Regulates Metabolism
  • Gives you clear skin and reduces wrinkles
  • Detoxifies the body
  • Blood Purifier and aids better circulation
  • An excellent source of calcium
  • Will rid you of the common cold and flu symptoms

Black Pepper

Always add Black Pepper to your Golden Milk. The reason for this because Black Pepper increases the absorption of Turmeric by as much as 2000%.

Coconut Oil

Curcumin, the main ingredient in Turmeric, is fat soluble which means in order to be absorbed in to the bloodstream it needs to be dissolved in fat. And what better form of fat to use than the absolute godfather of good fats – Coconut Oil. Make sure to use a good raw extra virgin coconut oil, unfortunately not all coconut oil was created equally.

    1. it’s sort of like a spiced up version of a chai latte. some people moan about a slightly bitter taste hence the addition of honey in the recipe but I can happily drink it without honey. it tastes delicious. give it a try and let me know how you get on

    I have store bought turmeric at home and I have 2 turmeric plants. I have already dug out some of the roots. It would be interesting to make this drink.
