Turmeric Almond Milk Tea — “Golden Milk”

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.

very yellow vitamin

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!

Purva - Dear Parvati,
It was so wonderful to meet you at the Raw Bar tucked away in magical Tulum. Reading your bio and learning about your extensive yoga and travel background explains your gentle and peaceful aura about you. I am happy I didn’t have a camera after all; it is nice to have a real moment. Best wishes to you and yours on your next adventure. Namaste.

Parvati - So lovely to meet you and your sweet daughter. I look forward to bumping into you again someday.

Pumpkin protein shake

Some things never go out of season. Pumpkin lovers rejoice. I’ve concocted THE most delicious pumpkin smoothie of all time. Pumpkin is a superfood that’s high in fiber and low in calories– making it perfect for sustained energy and fullness in the morning or to refuel after a sweaty spin class. Plus, the carotenoids in pumpkin are major players in the fight against disease.

Here’s the recipe.

Pumpkin Power Shake

Pumpkin Power Shake

1/2 can pumpkin

3 dashes cinnamon

2 dashes nutmeg

1 medjool date

1 scoop vanilla protein powder ( I love Dana James’s Beautifuel)

1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1/2 overripe banana – frozen

1 spoonful of cacao nibs

1/4 avocado

2 or 3 ice cubes

Add all ingredients into a powerful blender and let her rip– blend until silky smooth. Top with a small spoonful of Paleonola maple granola.

Enjoy!
