A bottle of organic turmeric powder in your pantry is a must!
I use this milk at the first sign of malaise heralding a winter chill and cold.
1/2 – 1 level teaspoon turmeric powder
1 spoon green cardamom pods, finely pounded in a mortar and pestle
1 cup of almond milk – I like the Califia* brand because their unsweetened version does not have anything but almonds and water (not a big fan of fortified milks). Cow’s milk or any other milk you like to use are great options too.
In a heavy bottom pan, boil and whisk together the almond milk, turmeric, and cardamom for about 8 minutes. Shut off the heat. Filter off the grit if you are sensitive to that. Sweeten with a natural sweetener like honey or agave. Just don’t heat the sweetener with the drink – mix it in after you take the mixture off the heat.
Drink this warm milk as a pick-me-up preferably away from meals. It works as a soothing night-time tonic.
