Golden Mylk

Golden Milk has many benefits and turmeric may be the most powerful therapeutic spice in the world.  With flu season is full motion, it seems like a good time to share this ancient Ayurvedic beverage.  It has been used as a medicinal herb for thousands of years in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbs coconut oil
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder (or grated)
  • 1/2 tsp ginger (grated)
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • pinch of sea salt
  • cinnamon
  • nutmeg

In a pot, on a low heat - place your coconut oil with the ginger, turmeric and black pepper to a light simmer.  After about 1 to 2 minutes, pour in your coconut milk and stir for 1 to 2 minutes.  At this point, you are almost done with your cup of golden mylk.  Add your other spices for flavor - let your mixture come to a light simmer and remove from heat. 

I love this beverage and is a great morning drink to replace coffee or an evening drink before bed.   There are many benefits with this drink - anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, decreases depression and anxiety and improves brain function.  

Enjoy your Golden Mylk!
