I know, I’m a little late to the party.
BUT. As promised from the recap post, the turmeric golden milk ( or tea ) recipe is happening.
It’s totally worth the share – I’m obsessed.
If you read that post, you know I wasn’t really into the color/sight of the tea when I first saw it.
I also had no idea about the benefits of turmeric until it became a thing all over Instagram, thanks insta!
I read that it was great for swollen days and was very close to just swallowing turmeric from the bottle.
( huge sigh )
Opted out. Instead I tried the latest trend.. with a twist. Duh.
I try a lot of random things, like.. a lot. You can show me anything ( gross looking or not ) and tell me the benefits that tag along with it and I’m in. I’ll always, always try something.
But I’ll be honest about it. If I hate it, I’m telling you.
Like avocado milk. ( Sorry Kourt K. I love you.. just not your drink. )
Have you guys tried her morning ritual drink? I thought I was going to love it..
Anyway. This turmeric tea is delicious. I love love love tea in general, and this one has major benefits!
Instead of just turmeric, almond milk, syrup/honey, and cayenne.. I added some extra’s for a real benefit booster of a drink.FUN FACT: turmeric has a rough time making it past the stomach.. WHAT. I had no idea. So pepper/fats ( coconut oil, avocado, etc. ) help to better absorb the spice! I added coconut oil to the drink since I take a tablespoon a day anyway.
+ 2 cups almond milk
+ 1 tsp honey
+ 1 tsp turmeric
+ fresh ginger ( 3 slices )
1/2 tsp cinnamon
+ 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
+ 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
+ few pinches of cayenne pepper
+ nausea relief
+ heartburn relief
+ brain function
+ boost metabolism
+ chop up the ginger into slices
+ put everything into a blender ( I use my NutriBullet )
+ put it on the stove, lowest heat for about 3 minutes, maybe? depends on how hot you like it
I’m drinking it allll the time right now.
I’m loving the added ingredients, too. Ginger is my go-to. I eat it all.the.time. And the vanilla extract is a win-win.
Let me know what you guys think. Love it, hate it, or if you put a twist on it!
