Golden Milk Recipe: Health Food Big Trend of 2017

This lightly spiced drink is packed with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, thanks to the turmeric in it. Golden milk is a big trend in 2017 because of the increased desire to be on an anti-inflammatory diet. Here’s the golden milk recipe just for you:

Ingredients:

  •  1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk, preferably coconut milk beverage or almond milk
  •  1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick
  •  1 (1-inch) piece turmeric, unpeeled, thinly sliced, or 1/2 teaspoon dried turmeric
  •  1 (1/2-inch) piece ginger, unpeeled, thinly sliced
  •  1 tablespoon honey
  •  1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil
  •  1/4 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  •  Ground cinnamon (for serving)

Directions:

  1. Whisk coconut milk, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, honey, coconut oil, peppercorns, and 1 cup water in a small saucepan; bring to a low boil.
  2. Reduce heat and simmer until flavors have melded, about 10 minutes.
  3. Strain into mugs and top with a dash of cinnamon.

Notes:

  1. Golden milk can be made 5 days ahead. Store in an airtight container and chill. Warm it before serving.
  2. Using fresh turmeric adds a clean, bright flavor to this drink, but dried turmeric can be substituted when fresh is not available.
  3. Stir well before drinking because turmeric tends to settle to the bottom of the mug.
