As some of you might know, I’m trying my very very best to eat healthy. Actually, I really do eat very healthy most of the time, I just have some treats now and then. But, this month I’ve been doing a reset diet with Reformed Metabolics. I really just want to be healthy and fit. I’ve kind of given up on the hope of a skinny body, and I think that’s ok. I’ve earned this 40 year old mom body, and I’m pretty proud of what it is capable of. I work this body hard. But, I’m trying to eat things that help me feel my best. And there is only good things in this Golden Turmeric Milk recipe.
I love this warm, spicy, creamy drink. Not only does it taste great, turmeric is also has anti-inflammatory properties. This is great for my, always sore, hips and lower back. But, let’s but 100% honest, I really drink it because it tastes great. And really, it’s the perfect drink before bed, because there’s no caffeine.
If you’ve shopped around, a turmeric latte or golden milk in a coffee shop is just as expensive as a fancy coffee. And there are mixes out there you can buy, but I kind of love the idea of knowing what you are putting into your body. So, I came up with my own recipe. Mine is a little spicy, but that’s the way I like it.
Homemade Golden Turmeric Milk
- 3 tbsp. ginger
- 3 tbsp. turmeric
- 2 tbsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. black pepper
- 1 tbsp. cardamom
In a bowl, combine all the spices above. Whisk together the distribute the spices evenly. Store in an airtight container.
Add 1-2 tsp. of the turmeric mix to a cup of steamed milk of your choice. Whisking it in works well, but for best results, I pour it all into my blender and just pulse a couple of times. I have tried it with both regular milk and almond milk. And if you want it a little sweet, a teaspoon of honey is really nice.
It ‘s really such a pretty drink. Now cheers, and let’s drink to our health!
