Since it’s still freezing in NYC, I decided to get adventurous and try whipping up one of my very favorite warm drinks.
Golden milk has turmeric in it which makes it insanely good for you and also extremely yellow– so yellow, that it stained my Vitamix this crazy shade of polarized Ray Ban.
Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory which makes it really good for joint health. It also brightens the skin and helps to detoxify the liver. The benefits go on and on, but the drink is just plain yummy. So give it a try, and let me know how you like it!
Golden Milk Recipe:
1 caterpillar of fresh turmeric — look for this in the produce aisle at Whole Foods
1/2 cup boiling water
Blend these two ingredients together for about a minute. Then add:
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
a few small pieces of fresh ginger
1 medjool date
1 tsp honey
4 cups unsweetened almond milk
Blend all of these ingredients on high for about a minute or so. Then pour the mixture into a pot and heat it up. Stir occasionally.
Serve and drink while it’s warm. Enjoy!
