When I came to Canada, I did not know what was Golden Milk. It seemed a very fancy milk, and I wanted to have it. But then I realised it is the milk which my mother used to force in my mouth every night.
Since I am out of my home I stopped drinking it, but now I am aging (I am 34) and I need the benefits of the turmeric.
I buy Turmeric root from Sobeys, but it looks like ginger. I buy fresh turmeric every week.
This is how I make my turmeric milk every night. I actually make it in the evening 5 p.m so that by 8 p.m the milk has more yellow colour and more flavour of spices.
The recipe is for 1 glass of milks
- 1/8 tsp of Turmeric grated.
- Whole milk 1 1/2 cup
- 1/4 tspof cinnamon powder or you can use cinnamon stick just throw in the boiling milk 1/2 inch of cinnamon stick (i prefer stick)
- pinch of black pepper grounded
- sweetner of choice. (Sugar, Jaggery, maple syrup)
To a sauce pan add every thing and put it for boil.
Once boiled, let it cool down and enjoy the Golden Milk, with amazing benefits.
