Also known as Golden Milk, turmeric tea is a warm and nourishing drink that helps the body fight inflammation while boosting the immune system. This bright-orange herb has been used in different cultures for thousands of years to treat and prevent disease by supplying the body with many beneficial antioxidants and healing properties, making it a great way to turn your food into medicine.
There are many turmeric-tea recipes, so feel free to play around with different ingredients. I have found this one to offer the best flavor in combination with a number of health-boosting ingredients.
The Tea Recipe
- 1 cup unsweeted nut milk (I love to use homemade cashew milk.)
- 1/2 cup hot water
- 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (or 1 teaspoon tahini)
- 1 teaspoon raw honey
- Sprinkle of black pepper (facilitates absorption of turmeric)
- Sprinkle of cinnamon
Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth.
Place liquid in a small pot and warm over low heat until hot but not boiling.
Serve and enjoy!
