Golden Milk recipe
Its great for you! Start drinking it every evening before bed.
Golden Milk is an Ayurvedic recipe. I started recommending Golden Milk to some of my clients that suffer from inflammatory conditions in the joints, from just muscle tension to more serious condition like cartilage degeneration.
Now I recommend this “magic potion” to all my clients because it has amazing benefits:
- It’s an antiseptic and an analgesic, so it helps with pain relief
- It detoxes the liver and helps to purify the blood
- It helps your digestive system
- It’s great for joint problems, such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
- It works well for different skin problems.
- It offers a general immunity boost and provides you with a good dose of antioxidants.
I recommend to drink Golden Milk before bed. It will help you sleep as well. My wife and I drink it every night.
The recipe is divided into two parts. First, we’ll look at how to make the turmeric paste. Then, we’ll use the paste to make the golden milk.
½ cup of clean water
¼ cup of turmeric powder
½ teaspoon of ground pepper
Put the pan with water in it on a medium heat setting. Add turmeric and pepper and stir well, so you create a smooth paste. It takes about 7 to 9 minutes to get the paste properly cooked. If it becomes too dry, you can add some more water.
Allow the mixture to cool down and then place it in a glass container with an airtight lid. The paste will keep in the fridge for 2 to 3 weeks.
Some people take this paste directly, without making it into a concoction. It’s good for pain relief. For severe pain, it’s recommended to take half to 1 teaspoon of turmeric paste a day.
Golden milk recipe
¼ teaspoon (or more if you can tolerate the taste) of turmeric paste
1 cup almond milk (you can also use organic cow’s milk or other milk substitute)
1 teaspoon of coconut oil (you can also use sesame oil or sweet almond oil) – get unrefined, cold pressed oil
Some honey (or use another natural sweetener such as maple syrup, stevia)
Put milk and turmeric paste in a pot and cook on medium heat. Heat the mixture until steaming but not boiling. Remove from heat. When the drink cools down, add honey and oil. The oil supplies you with healthy fats and further increases turmeric absorption. It helps with joint lubrication and promotes cellular function.
