Golden Milk, or turmeric milk, has become quite popular lately. And for good reasons.
Turmeric has been used as a spice in Indian recipes and as an Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. It offers many health benefits since it has both anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties.
Turmeric is also used to relieve swelling and pain due to headaches and wounds and is called ‘natural aspirin’ in Ayurvedic medicine.
When combined with other healing ingredients in this Golden Milk, it helps you to sleep well at night, it balances your hormones, and it’s warming, soothing and delicious.
As a bonus, I’ve found that Golden Milk helps to relieve menstrual cramps.
It’s also incredibly easy to make! Here’s my favorite recipe.
First, cook a Golden Paste by blending 5 tablespoons virgin coconut oil, 1/2 cup organic turmeric powder, 1 cup water, and 1.5 teaspoons black pepper in a pot and simmer for about 10 minutes.
Cool and keep it in the refrigerator in a jar. It’ll keep for about two weeks.
To make the Golden Milk, warm 2 cups of almond milk (or rice milk, coconut milk or your personal favorite milk) and 1 teaspoon of Golden Paste in a pot. Whisk until fully mixed. Add cinnamon to taste.
