As the weather gets colder here in Brisbane, my mind turns to warming drinks and simple foods that I can eat to help boost my immune system. I’ve been hearing and reading much lately about the amazing benefits and healing properties derived from eating turmeric. I’ve read that turmeric has long been used for its anti-inflammatory properties in both Chinese and Indian medicine. As such, it has been widely used throughout history as a healing remedy. When I read things like this I think, ‘So what ways can I eat more of this amazing food?’
I’ve been using turmeric in my curries for a long time and more recently I’ve been using fresh turmeric in my juicing. I came across the idea of Turmeric Milk or ‘Golden Tea’ (as it is often called) last year. However, it’s only recently that I’ve started to drink it as a way to enhance my own health.
I’ve seen a lot of other recipes and I have tweaked them to make one that suits my tastes. I prefer a mild turmeric milk that has been spiced with ginger and ground cinnamon. I love to add a little sweetness by adding a heaped teaspoon of manuka honey, which is also known for its healing properties. If you want a vegan option, then substitute the honey with pure maple syrup or rice malt syrup. All in all, this is a pleasantly spiced turmeric milk that makes me feel warm inside. I hope you enjoy it.
