Easy Golden Milk Recipe – Almond Milk with Turmeric
Turmeric has so many benefits that it would be difficult to cover all in just one post. It can help to relieve joint pain and increase your memory. But I like to use it for it’s anti-inflamitory benefits as well and boosting the immune system. This Golden Milk Recipe is a delicious and easy way to get the benefits of turmeric. You have to try it to see how it helps you!
Personally, I like to use it when the people around me start getting sick! Golden Milk along with other natural cold remedies have helped me stay healthy over the years.
Earlier this year both kids got the flu. As you can predict, they were coughing in my face and rubbing their germs all over me! I was taking vitamin C and drinking lots of green tea and orange juice. But I also incorporated Golden Milk in to my mornings and miraculously, I didn’t get sick. At that point I was sold on Golden Milk.
The standard recipe isn’t sweet at all and it has a very strong turmeric flavor. It was hard to drink since I wasn’t used to turmeric. I started adding (a lot) of honey and it was delicious! It has actually become a replacement for a latte. In fact, it would probably be delicious with a little coffee mixed in… hm…
Tips for Making Golden Milk
Golden Milk has a similar consistency to a latte. Therefore the first time I tried it, I expected it to be sweet. I was disappointing when it wasn’t sweet at all! If this is your first time drinking it, I would recommend adding a lot of honey. At least 2 Tbsp. Another alternative (my favorite way!) is to used sweetened Soy or Almond milk. I keep this to a minimum since it is added sugar, but I tell myself that the health benefits of Turmeric offset the sugar! Shhhh…
