I’m so cold today! This golden Milk hit the spot not only with warmth but also with providing me with superfoods to help me get rid of this cough and slightly swollen lymph nodes I’m fighting. Ugh, colds tick me off because I know I’m not getting enough sleep and need to do what I have a hard time doing the most- REST 😩 This hot drink is called Golden Milk because it’s main ingredient is the powerful herb, turmeric. Turmeric is anti inflammatory, boosts immunity, reduces pain and inflammation, soothes irritated tissues, supports the stomach lining, loosens stiff joints, balances blood sugar and is known for its anti cancer benefits. Here’s my recipe-
2cups unsweetened coconut milk,
1tsp powdered turmeric (start with 1/2 until your body is used to it),
1/2 tsp ginger powder,
1/2 tsp cinnamon,
1/2 tsp cardamom,
1tsp honey 🍯 or more if you want to it sweeter just don’t add too much!
Dash of black pepper for absorbing superfoods.
Boil milk reduce to simmer and stir in all ingredients.
This is great anytime of day, but at night is best since it will relax you and help you to sleep.
