I woke up with a sore throat and flu-like symptoms. I started several of my favorite home remedies, and it came to me to try turmeric milk. I had been seeing so many great things about it online. When I saw turmeric milk, I thought that it sounded different (like not good). But I’m not one to scare too easily. If it’s good for you, why not try it? It’s super easy to make, kind of like making hot cocoa, just without the cocoa.
Traditionally, turmeric has been used for colds, sore throats, flu symptoms, and depression, to name a few. Seriously, do some research this stuff is amazing!
What was the verdict? I actually thought it was really good and have had several cups now, very soothing. Those familiar with turmeric, are thinking what about that bitter aftertaste? Adding ginger, honey, and a little coconut oil masks that taste for sure.
- 2 cups of milk
- 1 teaspoon of organic dried turmeric
- 1 teaspoon of organic dried ginger
- Pinch of Celtic sea salt
- Pinch of black pepper
- Honey to taste
- Optional 1 -2 teaspoons of coconut oil
Heat milk on the stovetop over medium heat; add turmeric, ginger, salt, and pepper. Whisk it all up, as you are heating up the milk. Take it off when it gets little bubbles and starts to steam. Please don’t boil the milk (yuck).
Take it off the heat, and add your honey and coconut oil, whisk it real good and serve warm.
That’s it, easy peasy!
