Golden Milk Tea
It’s healthy, tasty and powerful.
It’s well known by now that certain regions of Japan and India enjoy longevity, optimum health, and low cancer rates, among others. And some of the common components to their health are regular consumption of turmeric and ginger.
Numerous studies have linked turmeric with wide-ranging anti-inflammatory effects, in addition to supporting brain and joint health, and preventing certain cancers. Ginger is also a natural anti-inflammatory that can help relieve symptoms of arthritis, bursitis, and other musculoskeletal ailments, not to mention indigestion. Black pepper enhances the absorption and anti-inflammatory benefits of turmeric, while also providing iron, manganese and vitamin K.
Heat up 2 cups of organic almond, coconut or soy milk (unsweetened) with one tablespoon of peeled, grated fresh ginger; one tablespoon peeled, grated fresh turmeric or powder, and three to four black peppercorns or a pinch or ground pepper. Bring to a boil and then turn down the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain and sweeten lightly to taste with raw or high quality honey or coconut sugar, if you prefer.
