We both grew up drinking turmeric milk as children, not really understanding the true benefits.
Our new recipe started at Natures Harvest is tastier and even more beneficial with the added spice blend served either hot or iced that even our mums agreeJ
Turmeric, also known as the golden spice or the magic sword against inflammation, has been used in Ayurveda, the Indian system of holistic medicine, for nearly 4000 years. In Sanskrit Turmeric has at least 53 different names including jayanti (one that wins over diseases).
I spent many years as a pharmacist dispensing medications now choosing to promote and encourage a more holistic approach dispensing food as medicine!
Natures Harvest is now distributing Turmeric Latte Mix to Cafes around the world.
3 cups hot water
3 to 4 fingers of peeled turmeric (or 1/2 teaspoon of powder)
2 teaspoons honey or maple syrup
2 to 3 tablespoons coconut butter
2 pinches ground black pepper
Pinch salt (optional)
Cinnamon for sprinkling
Blend the hot water with the peeled turmeric and strain through a nut milk bag or sieve. You won’t need to really squeeze the bag like you do with making nut milk, but even so, be careful not to burn your hands.
Add the sweetener, coconut butter, black pepper, salt (if using) and blend again.
