From the Be Well Kitchen: Turmeric Tea

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:

Turmeric Tea Recipe

  • 1 cup unsweeted nut milk (I love to use homemade cashew milk)
  • ½ cup hot water
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (or 1 teaspoon tahini)
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey
  • A 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!
