24 Nov Golden Milk
Golden Milk – this delicious hot drink is perfect for yogis. It lubricates all of the joints and makes them flexible.
Golden Milk contains turmeric (curcuma) which is a wonder herb. Usually used in Indian cuisine, it has been used in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. Curcumin, the specific antioxidant in turmeric, is now being studied because it has so many health promoting qualities. Its properties are antimicrobial, anti inflammatory, and antioxidant; it protects against diabetes, and may even starve off Alzheimer’s. It prevents also cancer.
1/4 cup ground turmeric
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp. black pepper
Place the turmeric and the water in a pan over medium heat and stir continually for 7-9 minutes. It might become too thick, at which point you can add more water a tsp at a time. Put this mixture in a glass jar with a lid in the fridge; it will stay good for up to 2 weeks.
1 tsp Turmeric Paste
1 cups milk (cow milk, soya or another kind of milk you like)
1 tsp honey
Optional: 1 tsp coconut oil or almond oil
Heat it all up in a saucepan for about 2 minutes. Enjoy a warm cup of Golden Milk!
