Golden Milk

I was welcomed back to Massachusetts from Utah with a gift… a cold. Boooo. Not fun. It’s been making me feel pretty crappy and very lazy. Thank GAHD I just picked up new glasses so I can at least look sort of cute while feeling terrible #alwaysfindthesilverlining

ANYWAY… one of my home remedies/concoctions that has been saving me is this tea blend I’ve been making. Traditionally, “golden milk” is a turmeric based tea drink known to support the immune system.

Everyone sort of has their own recipe that they follow to make their version of golden milk- here’s mine!

Ingredients:

  • Turmeric packet (found in the Whole Body section at Whole Foods)
  • Ginger tea bag
  • Boiling water
  • 3 tbs. full fat coconut milk
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. honey

I boil water in our electric kettle and pour that over a tea bag of this ginger tea I have. I’m pretty sure its just straight ginger in the tea bag. You could also use a little bit of ginger powder or a knob of fresh peeled ginger. After letting the water steep for about 6-8 minutes, I stir in the turmeric packet, coconut milk, cinnamon, and honey. You could use an immersion blender to fully blend all of the ingredients. I’m usually too lazy (especially when I’m sick) to do so.79643I love the turmeric packets because they eliminate some of the work in making golden tea. Plus, the packet includes some black pepper which helps you better absorb the turmeric).8Perfect for the gloomy, rainy morningsΒ we’ve been having here in Boston.

I swear this beverage of goodness saved my life this week.1Other golden milk recipes you might enjoy:
