Healing Golden Milk | Tara Thorne Nutrition

Ingredients

  • 1.5 C unsweetened dairy alternative of choice
  • ½ tsp powdered turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp Ceylon cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp powdered ginger
  • 1/8 tsp ground pepper (a few cranks of a pepper mill)
  • 1 tsp coconut or MCT oil
  • ½ tsp rea vanilla extract
  • 2 heaped TBS hydrolyzed collagen
  • 1 – 2 tsp raw or Manuka honey

Instructions

  1. Warm on the stove and then whiz up in your blender to make it all frothy. Enjoy! I like to keep a tiny whisk or spoon in the beverage as I drink it so I can stir it constantly, otherwise the spices settle on the bottom and you get a big mouthful of spice at the end.

Notes

  • You might be wondering about the pepper. Black pepper is important to always take alongside your turmeric because it significantly increases the bioavailability of the specific nutrient in turmeric – curcumin – that we want more of for its healing properties.
  • All ingredients should be organic
  • Be sure to use Ceylon cinnamon, especially if you’re having this daily. Most cinnamon you find in the stores is Cassia cinnamon, which contains a potent liver toxin. Make sure the label actually says “Ceylon Cinnamon”.
