Golden Milk …
it sounds delicious right ?! am i right ?!?
Initially upon learning of this Elixir I assumed it was the MILK OF UNICORNS (naturally).. because you know that sh*t will give you super powers ..
Nay (see what i did there?!) it is in fact an Old Ayurvedic Recipe used as an anti-inflammatory “Beauty Tonic” -Hello! and overall healthful drink .
on a scientific note the Golden Ingredient – The PUN QUEEN IS BACK!! sorry anyway the main ingredient TURMERIC has recently come to the forefront of western health because of its many benefits
Including But Not Limited To:
-fighting colds / flu’s
– assisting in insulin stability (helpful for diabetics)
-stimulates gallbladder – in turn aids digestion and weight loss
– natural liver detox
so its a good’n
But the Original Recipe from Ayurveda contains Dairy , which would have been fine because of the purity and freshness of milk back in the day (Imagining an old lady shaking her walking stick!?!?) but not so much now
so i’ve devised the dairy free alternative ..
+Yogi’s take note , because it lubricates the joints its great before classes to aid flexibility
1/2 tsp. turmeric powder (less if fresh root)
1 cup milk substitute (rice , almond, oat whatever go crazy!)
1/3 cup water
1-2 Tbsp. coconut oil (optional but helpful for the flu-ey people because its of antibacterial properties)
raw honey/stevia/maple syrup to taste
ALSO PLAY AROUND WITH THE AMOUNTS OF TURMERIC and sweetness.. when you hit that perfect personal preference this is friggin delicious
Boil water and turmeric in small saucepan over medium-high heat for 8 minutes (the turmeric must be fully cooked if not powdered ). Meanwhile, bring the milk and coconut oil to boiling point in a separate pan and remove from heat. Combine the two mixtures and add sweetness of your choice .
