Turmeric milk is living its best life at the moment. When Starbucks recently introduced the golden twist to their coffee,Turmeric Latte, it instantly rose to fame and took over social media with beautiful images of the healing brew.
From weight loss to better digestion to glowing skin, golden milk is truly a magical brew. The combination of milk and turmeric is a powerful one and should be your ultimate health & beauty potion.
Here is our favourite way to mix the elixir up:
- Half cup Water
- Half cup milk
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- A pinch of black pepper
- A pinch of Cinnamon
- Grated Ginger
– Take a vessel, pour half cup of water and bring to boil
– Add Turmeric and simmer in it
– Add a pinch of black pepper
– Add Cinnamon (Cinnamon is the secret to a thin waist line, it helps in reducing belly fat)
– Add the grated ginger
– Boil the concoction for 5 minutes
– Add half cup of milk and stir the milk while it is simmering. This will ensure heat is evenly distributed.
– Strain the milk with the help of a strainer and pour it into a cup
– Garnish with honey if you like
– Add a spoonful of coconut oil (if you like) for that extra nourishment
The pepper is the key because it allows the body to absorb the turmeric nutrients since our body struggles to absorb the ‘curcumin’ that is the magic substance in turmeric. Adding pepper makes sure that the body absorbs the nutrient and you can get the full benefit of your golden milk.
