Turmeric and Ginger Goldenmilk

  • 1Cup milk of your choice (I used a cashew almond milk)
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • dash of ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp honey

Golden tea and golden milk are quite the popular drink these days and it’s no wonder. Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory and helps with muscle aches as well as being full of antioxidants. The trouble I have had is getting the grit out. I love the turmeric flavor but the texture by the end of my cup of tea is not so delightful. So I was super happy to find a blended method on http://www.wellnessmama.com. Her suggestion is to blend all ingredients in a high speed blender and that sure did the trick! It emulsified the turmeric into the milk and made it a lovely smooth drink.

I changed some of the spices from the original recipe simply out of personal flavor preference, so don’t be afraid to adjust the flavors to your own liking. I also added extra ginger because it also has great anti-inflammatory benefits along with it’s well known stomach soothing qualities. After a few consecutive days of drinking this lovely yellow potion, I have noticed a reduction in muscle soreness from my morning workouts.

To make this soothing drink, simply place all ingredients in a blender, or directly into a small saucepan and use an immersion blender to blend all ingredients together until they’re a nice smooth consistency. Place the saucepan over medium heat for about 5 minutes to get it nice and hot but not bubbling. Pour into a pretty mug and enjoy.
