One of our favorite ways to welcome Fall is to add this warming Golden Milk to our evening routine. It's star ingredient is tumeric that boasts a whole host of healing benefits including reducing inflammation, boosting circulation, soothing digestion troubles, calming skin irritations, pain reduction, and in our family it is our go to the moment we start to feel a cold or sore throat coming on. There are many ways to make it and below is our favorite recipe with the perfect touch of sweetness that have my kids asking for it!
You’ll need the following ingredients for 4 servings:
1 tsp ground turmeric (we love Whole Spice or a tbsp fresh turmeric root)
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 cups of your favorite milk (almond, coconut, whole milk…..)
Add these three ingredients to a saucepan and simmer on medium light until it begins to boil. Then, turn off your flame & add 1-2 tbsp of real maple syrup. Whisk and pour into your mugs to serve.
Play with the ingredients- you can exchange maple syrup for raw honey, or add a dash of cinnamon or ginger to spice it up!
