This beautiful mixture of earthy flavor and delicate sweetness is a Wellness Tribe favorite and the perfect drink to warm you, body and soul, this winter season…or all year round! We love Organic Golden Milk right before bed!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups homemade organic nondairy nut milk (coconut, almond or cashew)
  • 1 tablespoon raw organic honey
  • 1 tablespoon organic coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated or ground organic turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated or ground organic ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground organic cinnamon
  • Dash of black pepper

Directions 

Heat 2 cups light unsweetened nut milk with 1 tablespoon of fresh ginger, 1 tablespoon fresh turmeric, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and 3-4 black peppercorns. Bring to a simmer and simmer covered for 10 minutes until all the ingredients have a come together and have a smooth golden color. Strain and sweeten to taste with honey (if desired).

This organic golden milk recipe complements turmeric’s distinct, root-like taste with creamy nut milk, sweet honey and aromatic cinnamon. Turmeric is a plant that has been used medicinally and for culinary purposes for nearly 4,000 years.  Black pepper is added because it contains a compound called piperine which helps to increase the bioavailability of the compound curcumin, which is inherent in turmeric, by 2000 percent! Black pepper also contains a number of essential nutrients, including manganese, iron and vitamin k, and is commonly used to calm digestive issues.

In Okinawa, Japan, turmeric tea is a way of life. The people on the island drink this traditional tea daily, and numerous studies have linked turmeric with wide-ranging anti-inflammatory effects as well as brain and joint health.  Perhaps this is one reason why the people of Okinawa have one of the world’s longest average life spans!
