Heated with a little milk and lots of warming spices, turmeric is wonderful for warding off colds and keeping your immune system in tiptop shape. This is a great one to have before bed, too!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk (coconut or almond are both nice for this one)
  • 1 heaped teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon freshly grated ginger or ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of ground black pepper
  • pinch of Himalayan sea salt
  • pinch of cayenne pepper for extra heat (optional)

Preparation

  1. For each of the drinks, gently heat the milk in a saucepan on the stove. Just before it boils, remove from the heat and add the rest of the ingredients. Whisk everything together until smooth and frothy. Drink as it is, or for an extra foamy treat, add the mix to a high-speed blender. Pour into a cup and enjoy!
