Tumeric has been a real game changer as I am in the process of taking a holistic approach for fibromyalgia management for the first time in ten years. I’m working on a more comprehensive post soon to share my process and experience but for now I am elated to share this tumeric-rich vegan “milk” drink that I am now taking every day before bed.
Tumeric has so many health benefits and anti-inflammatory properties that are a great aid to those like me living with chronic pain. This warming beverage is just one way you can incorporate more of it into your diet. I’ve adapted my version from the recipe found on the Minimalist Baker blog.
Golden Tumeric Drink adapted from the recipe found on Minimalist Baker
- 1 ½ cups full fat coconut milk (about one can)
- ¾ cup almond milk
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 2 teaspoons ground tumeric
- 2 teaspoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
- ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- pinch ground black pepper
- (makes about 2 cups/ 16 ounces)
To a small saucepan, add coconut milk, almond milk, ground turmeric, ground ginger, cinnamon stick, coconut oil, black pepper, and maple syrup
Whisk to combine and warm over medium heat. Heat until hot to the touch but not boiling – about 4 minutes – whisking frequently.
Serve immediately, dividing between one 16 ounce mason jar
Best when fresh, though leftovers can be stored covered in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
Reheat on the stovetop or microwave until hot.
Did you know that you’d have to drink 25-30 times more turmeric spice compared to taking a supplement? https://www.qunol.com/pages/eating-turmeric-vs-taking-a-supplement?utm_source=respond&utm_medium=blog&utm_campaign=eating-turmeric
