Healthy drink

Golden milk and turmeric paste

 

For the past five evenings I’ve ended my day with golden milk (also called turmeric milk). This drink is anti inflammatory and helps the immune system, aching joints etc. I thought I would give it a go!

So far I’ve only noticed that I sleep better but anything that will help my well-being and not make it so easy to become sick I must try. If this also helps to further elimit my joint pain (omitting lactose and gluten/grain has been quite noticeable) I’ll be forever grateful.

I’ve made a turmeric paste which I keep in the refrigerator and take a small amount every night and mix with milk and coconut oil and honey (i’ve sometimes omitted this though). It taste extremely yummy! Perfect way to end a day! So far I’ve only tried it with regular cow milk but I’m planning to try almond milk as well so I can drink this and be completely dairy free.

This is the recipe for the turmeric paste I used:

0,5 dL ground turmeric
0,5 dL freshly grated ginger
1 tsp ground black pepper
2 dL water

Mix and boil on medium heat until it becomes a paste. Stir repeatedly while cooking. Put in a small glas bowl and store in the refrigerator.

Recipe for golden milk:

Heat 2 dL of milk of your choice.
Add 1 tsp turmeric paste, 1 tsp coconut oil and 1 tsp honey.

Enjoy!
