I only learned about turmeric last year, but since then we have been using it regularly. I initially wanted to try it to see if it would help with my chronic back pain. I am happy to say that it has helped me tremendously. As I stated in a previous post, one of the benefits of turmeric is that it helps to ease pain caused by inflammation. When I heard about how well it works against inflammation, I immediately started researching how to use it. Some people cook with it, others take it by the teaspoonful, and finally, some people use it to make a simple golden milk turmeric tea. I set out to find out how to make this turmeric golden milk and have been making it ever since. It is so easy to make. I love the taste of it and love the benefits even more. Here is a simple golden milk turmeric tea recipe.
Golden Milk Turmeric Tea Recipe
- 2 cups milk of choice (I use Oat Milk)
- 1 tsp ground turmeric
- 2 Tbsp raw honey
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Add milk, turmeric and cinnamon to a small saucepan and allow it to simmer until all the ingredients are combined. Strain the golden milk through a nut bag into a tea pot. Stir in honey. Serve it warm and with a dash of cinnamon on top. You may like to add a bit more honey if it's your first time trying it.
Straining is optional. I have issues with texture, so I prefer to drink beverages that are smooth. Also, sometimes when I want to change it up a bit, I add in fresh ginger and cloves. It makes it a little spicier, kind of like a chai tea.
