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:
