A patient recently told me about golden milk. Golden milk ? I had never heard of that one before. I was curious and eager to try it out. So I searched out different recipes and finally came up with the combination of ingredients that I thought were the most healthful. We made it last night and it was totally yummilicious and awesome. Everyone loved it and the kids kept coming back for more! It’s a perfect latte because it has the anti-inflammatory spices of turmeric and ginger. The maple syrup as a sweetener is a far better option than white sugar. Using a nut milk instead of cows milk is much better for fighting inflammation and avoids all the saturated fat, mucus, antibiotics and casein in cows milk which is the last thing anybody needs.
So here is the recipe.
- 2 cups almond milk (or use any nut milk of your choice)
- 2 tbsp maple syrup (replaces refined sugars)
- 1/4 tsp ground turmeric (potent anti-inflammatory spice)
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger (optional)
Mix all ingredients together in a blender and serve
You could skip the blender and stir in a pot over gentle heat to allow all the ingredients to dissolve well.
Best of health to you and your family,
