Cheers to Glowing Skin, a Sharp Mind & Detoxing from Bad Decisions; All From A Magical Golden Drink!
Perhaps you share a similar hesitation with about a quarter of my friends and family that I love and care for deeply, and you too completely dismiss nutraceuticals. Thanks to recent culture shift in the united states towards a healthier and more natural diet, it has been slightly easier to coerce these lovely creatures into adopting a healthier and more organic** way of life. There is a lot to be gained from exploring the world of natural remedies and it is not something that you should turn a blind eye to your entire life simply because you don’t understand it or because there is a lot of monomania around it.
Or maybe you’re like me and get giddy at trying new tonics, aromatherapy and/or anything natural, so you can neurotically monitor all results, side effects and benefits. Then again, you might lie somewhere in the middle, either way golden milk, this magical gold drink, is for you! The benefits are vast, immediate and potent. It also tastes pretty damn good, is easy to access and make which is equally important in our society.
So what is it?!
Golden Milk (or tea) is a brewed concoction, intent and purposed specifically to deliver and optimize the magical properties of turmeric (that stuff that makes your mustard yellow) to the body. It tastes mildly sweet at first with a balancing savory and spicy finish. The drink itself has over 10 different viable benefits and it is best consumed in the evening. You already know I have to say it…its naturally gluten, soy, and dairy free…Yay!
Why should you drink it?
Golden Milk is proven to be a powerful anti-inflammatory, aid in brain function (neurological disorders), serve as an anti-oxidant, and anti-carcinogenic.
It is also been found effective in:
increasing memory function
improves skin condition

What You Will Need;
Turmeric 〉 the main player!
Black Pepper (or Cayenne pepper♥) 〉 adding pepper to turmeric enhances curcumin’s bioavailability by 1,000 times.
Cinnamon 〉 once combined with turmeric, helps to regulate metabolism and blood sugar.
Coconut oil 〉 a tasty fat for maximum nutrient absorption.
Honey 〉 make sure to use real honey, there are a lot of sugary imitations out there.
Almond milk 〉 unsweetened vanilla (or chocolate♥) Almond Breeze is fine.

How To Make it:
- Mix well 1/4 Cup of turmeric powder, 1/2 teaspoon of Black or Cayenne Pepper with 1/2 Cup of water.
- Pour in a sauce pan and turn the heat to medium high until the mixture is a thick paste. This does not take long so don’t take your eyes off it or it will betray you.
- Let this mixture cool and then keep it in a small jar in the fridge. The paste should last in the fridge roughly 2-3 weeks or until it begins to smell slightly metallic.
- Then when ready, combine 1 teaspoon of the paste with 1 cup of almond milk in a small pot.
- While heating make sure to stir constantly and bring the liquid to the point of almost boiling just before you turn off the heat. The turmeric should be well saturated in the mixture with no clumps left behind…trust me it feels not so great when one of the resistant nuggets slides down your throat unexpectedly.
- Finally add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and maybe 1 teaspoon or some tiny amount of honey to taste.
- Drink while hot, and to enjoy this little miracle about 2-3 times a week.
After a couple of weeks really check in with your body to see if you feel sharper, or are craving less sugar, or just feel better in general (especially those that live with chronic pain and inflammation.) While this beverage has many benefits it is not recommended for those people who are prone to develop kidney stones or gallbladder issues.
**I have to note that I mildly resent using the word “organic” in this manner; you see as a bio-major you come to understand the word organic as anything carbon-containing and almost everything is organic by that sense of the word-especially ALL foods-so it makes no since to use that word to describe non-GMO products because GMO are still indeed carbon containing. Okay I’m done
