Oh, this is so delicious. I use a small handheld milk frother to whip up the oat milk (or your milk of choice) so its a little frothy on top.
The use of turmeric makes this a powerful ayurvedic drink. It is great to boost immunity, its an anti-inflammatory and is known to treat depression.
In India, turmeric has been coined as the most powerful spice of all. It has been the go-to fix for centuries. You should start giving it a try.
If you need an early morning coffee, you can turn this into a turmeric latte. Add a shot of espresso. Enjoy!
Turmeric Cinnamon Milk - Golden Milk
I love this warm, soothing, yellow, frothy drink any time of day!
1 cup milk (oat, almond, coconut or dairy)
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of cardamom powder
pinch of ground black pepper
pinch of ginger powder
1 teaspoon honey, agave, maple syrup (sweetener of choice)
Add all the ingredients to a small saucepan and heat over low heat. Do not boil or the milk will scald. You are just trying to heat the milk.
Top with a little sprinkle of cinnamon sugar.
You can use fresh turmeric and ginger by slicing and adding to the milk. You just have to strain it before serving.
I have also juiced the fresh turmeric and used a 1 Tablespoon per cup.
Don't limit yourself to try this delicious drink. If you don't have one of the spices, still try it. I also used a 1/4 teaspoon of ghee in my milk because a little extra healthy fat will help you absorb the turmeric better.
