Golden Milk

The health benefits of turmeric are almost endless!   Turmeric is anti bacterial, anti microbial, a powerful cancer fighter and a natural antihistamine.  In fact, turmeric can help prevent or treat  the following ailments: allergies, Alzheimer’s disease, gout, high blood pressure, arthritis (and all types of inflammation), diabetes, liver disease and several types of cancer (to name a few).  The active ingredient, curcumin, makes turmeric such a powerful healing root.

Studies conducted at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center showed that curcumin was more effective at reducing inflammation and fighting cancer (including pancreatic and breast cancer) than anything else studied One of the lead researchers, Bharat Aggarwal, Ph.D. says: 

 

“No cancer has been found, to my knowledge, which is not affected by curcumin. The reason curcumin is so effective against cancer is that it hits not just a single target or cell signaling pathway but dozens of targets implicated in cancer.”

 

With that said,  here is a delicious recipe for Golden Milk using turmeric powder:

First a paste is made and the the paste is used with a nut based milk to make golden milk. 

Turmeric Paste

¼ cup of Turmeric Powder

½ tsp of Ground Pepper

½ cup of Water

Measure out the ingredients and mix the powders and water in a small sauce pan and mix well. Turn the heat to medium and stir constantly until the mixture is a thick paste. This will happen quickly.  Let the mixture cool and then keep it in a small jar in the fridge for future drinks. It will store for a couple of weeks.

 Next, prepare the golden milk….

Golden Milk

1 cup of nut milk of your choice

1 teaspoon almond oil, ghee or olive oil, coconut oil

¼ teaspoon or more of turmeric paste

Raw honey to taste

You can blend all the ingredients to make a rich smoothie or you can warm the milk and serve it  with cinnamon or other spices sprinkled on top.  You can also blend with dates or other fruits for added sweetness.

Enjoy this treat daily and give your health a boost!

 

Go to your destiny,
