This recipe was inspired by my friend Julie and from Mark's Daily Apple.
The first snow has fallen on this beautiful Sunday morning, and I am inspired to stay warm and well for the upcoming holidays. The spice turmeric, commonly used in India to aid in congestion, digestion, and skin issues, is one of the magic ingredients in this immunity building elixir.
Adjust the spices to your taste. Sip a cup to bolster your health. This recipe makes enough for one.
1 cup coconut milk (or almond or full fat organic cow's milk)
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 drop doTERRA ginger essential oil ( or 1/2-inch wide round slice of ginger root, peeled and finely chopped)
Dash of cayenne pepper
Dash sea salt
1/2 – 1 teaspoon honey or other sweetener
*Optional additions: a dash of cinnamon, cardamom, or black pepper
Gently warm the milk on the stove.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a mug.
Drizzle a tablespoon of the warmed milk into the mug and whisk until the liquid is smooth with no lumps.
Add the rest of the milk and mix well. I like to use my frother or a small whisk and whisk until it gets frothy.
(If using ginger root you can leave the pieces in the tea, or strain them out before drinking.)
Sip and enjoy!
