A twist to the regular golden milk, this warm and soothing elixir, is packed with nourishing nutrients and is super simple to make. Done in under 10 minutes, we promise this golden milk turmeric coffee will become your new favourite way to enjoy coffee.
This golden milk turmeric coffee is health in a cup; milk infused with turmeric, ginger, cinnamon and coffee to create a spicy, warm, and creamy brew, with a bitter undertone. It is delicious! I can tell you that the addition of coffee really takes this up a notch. I got inspired by the extreme weather in Toronto to create something that was comforting, warm and healing. According to Global News, last week, “With a wind chill of -37.4, that’s the coldest it’s felt on this date since records began in 1938.” And how do we cope? We don’t have any choice but to pull through. And during these times, we turn to our “go-to” recipes to warm us up. And this one has become our daily obsession.We promise this #Turmeric #GoldenMilk will become your new favourite way to enjoy coffee. #Healthy #Recipe Click To Tweet
How to make Golden Milk Turmeric Coffee
You can use any variety of milk you prefer. I opt for what’s available at home and tend to alternate between coconut and soy milk. If you have fresh turmeric, by all means you can use that instead of powder, but I find the powder emits more flavour. As odd as it may sound, the black pepper is an important addition; it helps to increase the bioavailability of curcumin – the active compound in turmeric that’s touted for innumerable health benefits. In other words, the compound piperine in black pepper increases the absorption of curcumin. Let’s not forget it. You can choose any way to sweeten this golden milk turmeric coffee – maple syrup, honey, agave or enjoy without any sweetness. The spices help distract your taste buds from the sweetness.
Turmeric is a cherished ingredient in my spice cupboard. I love using it in this tandoori cauliflower recipe (which is a total hit in our home), or even in our favourite smoothie. It’s a versatile spice with many health benefits; most popularly known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, due to its curcumin content. With a long history, it has been used to help soothe tooth aches, menstrual pains, sore throats, bruises and more. I fondly remember my grandma giving us turmeric milk, during times of sickness.
Delicious on its own, it also pairs beautifully with a cereal bar, cookie or cupcake. Enjoy and stay warm!
