Turmeric is a wonderful anti-inflammatory spice & is so enhanced by all the other spices in this gorgeous, golden milk.
Mix: 1 tsp organic turmeric powder, 1/2 tsp ground cardamom, 1/2 tsp ground ginger, 1/2 tsp cinnamon & a grind of black pepper (helps the efficacy of the turmeric) to a paste with a little milk.
Leave to stand for 10 minutes.
Add 1 cup of whole milk, preferably raw (or almond, coconut etc)
Heat milk gently, stirring often.
Remove from heat just before it comes to the boil & add 1/2 tsp vanilla essence, 1 tsp of coconut oil & a tsp of honey.
Pour in to lovely mugs & sip nicely to nurture both body & soul.
The spices thicken & sit quite heavily towards the bottom of the cup...just so you know!
Double the quantities for two or make up to your own taste.
I now make up the spice mixture & keep it stored in a jar, to streamline the preparation time.
Please don't use trim milk & never, ever homogenised...it's dreadful stuff!
