Turmeric "Golden Milk" Tea
This recipe is so diverse, it helps promote an excellent nights sleep, helps cleanse the blood, helps to heal digestive issues, is anti-inflammatory and helps protect against cancer.
Recipe type: Beverage
Serves: ~ 4 servings
  • 2 cups of coconut milk. I highly recommend this coconut milk - it's the only one without preservatives and is just pure coconut in BPA free cans. (You can also use almond milk)
  • 1 tsp (and you can work up to 1 TBL) of coconut oil. This adds more good saturated fats and anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties
  • 1.5 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1" piece of fresh peeled and sliced ginger or ½ tsp ginger powder
  • 1 tsp of grade b maple syrup or honey to taste
  • a sprinkle of black pepper (optional) - this enhances the body's ability to absorb turmeric by one thousand times, however, if you have ulcerative colitis, crohns or other sensitivities, please omit.
  • Note: You can add filtered water to your liking and consistency.
  1. Blend all ingredients thoroughly in a blender or food processor, until smooth
  2. Pour into saucepan and heat over medium heat for about 3-5 minutes
  3. Pour into your mug or cup and enjoy all the delicious anti-inflammatory health benefits
