Golden Milk

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut, rice, or almond milk
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon turmeric paste (or just add powder OR, if possible, freshly peeled and grated turmeric)
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • Few shakes of freshly ground pepper
  • Generous dash of vanilla
  • Raw local honey or maple syrup to taste
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon to taste

Golden Milk is flavored by black pepper, which enhances the absorption and the anti-inflammatory effects of the turmeric.  Plus, black pepper contains a number of essential nutrients, including manganese, vitamin K, and iron; it is often used to calm digestive issues.  The coconut oil helps your body actually absorb the nutrients from the other ingredients; plus it tastes great!
