Anti-Inflammatory Elixir – Golden Milk

Anti-Inflammatory Elixir – Golden Milk

I’m loving turmeric this winter. Its anti-inflammatory properties make it my go-to herbal medicine for soooooo many issues, including joint pain, depression, and those nasty winter colds and flus. There are a lot of bugs going around town at the moment, so when I’m feeling run down, this Golden Milk is my simple, quick, prop-you-up-and-make-you-feel-strong drink – and it tastes pretty good too!

It’s super important to simmer the mixture – this “activates” the spices in order to release the active ingredients into the milk (the official term is a “decoction” – that’s herbal nerd speak for a brew that is boiled). Don’t skimp on this step – it will mean the difference between a warm drink and a powerful tonic.

Ingredients:

250ml almond milk (or dairy free milk of your choice)

1/4 tsp good quality turmeric powder

1/8 tsp ground cinnamon

Let’s do this! 

In a small saucepan over a medium heat, whisk the turmeric and cinnamon into the almond milk.

Bring it to the boil and then simmer, over a low heat, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Pour into a cup or mug, stir in the honey and serve.

Serves 1

    I love that you added cinnamon to this! That’s my go-to recipe. I’ve also added raw cacao powder and made a golden mylk hot cocoa which is super yummy with a little antioxidant boost. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
