Golden Milk

Golden Milk is a traditional Ayurvedic beverage from India.  It has many health benefits.  Here is how you make it:


1 Quart of Your Favorite milk*

3-5 Pieces of Turmeric

1-2 Pieces of Ginger

Honey** (optional)

Powdered Turmeric (optional)

2 cups Water

First mix water, turmeric, and ginger in a blender.  Pulse a few times.  Now pour mixture into a saucepan.  Cover and heat on medium for about 10-20 minutes.  Next filter using a French Press.  This is what gives the Golden Milk its flavor.  Mix about 1/4 of the ginger/turmeric liquid with 1 cup of milk (or desired amount) and warm in a saucepan.  Sprinkle with turmeric powder.  Add honey if desired.  EnJOY.
