    Golden Turmeric Coconut Milk

    Recently we held a Take Back Your Health Retreat in the Charlottesville – Brightwood area of Virginia, where there are beautiful rolling hills and views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

    I wanted to have a special drink ready for everyone when they checked in, so I decided to have this Golden Turmeric Coconut Milk warming on the stove!

    Believe it or not, this was my first time making my own version of this popular anti-inflammatory drink. I had tried it before but I never liked the black pepper taste. And, black pepper causes some undesirable joint inflammation in my body, so I was happy to find a good recipe that didn’t need it. It is delicious!

    Some people swear that black pepper is needed to absorb turmeric and that’s simply not the case. Turmeric is perfectly absorbable and accessible to your body with or without black pepper. 

    I remember one of my most powerful experiences using turmeric. I was having some extreme menstruation cramps. I almost felt like I was seeing stars. My friend told me to make a mug of hot water with 2 teaspoons of turmeric whisked in. I was supposed to drink it rapidly, or all at once. After drinking it, my cramps went away within 5-8 minutes. It was miraculous!

    Anyways, back to the point. Here is a delicious recipe for a turmeric drink. I hope you’ll enjoy it and share it with friends!

     

    Golden Coconut Milk

    Ingredients
    2 cups of canned coconut milk*
    1 1/4 tsp. turmeric**
    ½ tsp. cinnamon
    ¼-1/2 inch of fresh, peeled and grated ginger root or ¼ tsp. ginger powder
    1 tsp. raw honey/maple syrup OR liquid stevia to taste (optional)

    Directions
    1. Blend all ingredients on high until very smooth.
    2. Pour the milk combination into a small saucepan and heat for 3-5 minutes over medium heat until steaming. Enjoy!

    * If using full fat canned coconut milk, you might dilute with a bit of water. I usually do 1/2 cup water mixed with one cup of canned coconut milk to make a good consistency coconut milk. Most of the time I just “eyeball” it and don’t measure. This mixture can then be used in the recipe as the coconut milk.

    **The turmeric may stain your blenders and countertops. The color will eventually fade, but making a thick paste of baking soda and water and scrubbing the stain can help.

     

    I like to make this recipe ahead of time and store in the fridge. You can pull out just enough to warm up each night as a bedtime ritual. Or, maybe you prefer to drink it in the morning! Whenever you are in the mood, this golden milk will nourish your body and support healing.

    Enjoy!

    Keep taking back your health,
