Turmeric Milk

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars
725

"I frantically started searching for recipes when my husband brought home 1 kilo of fresh turmeric root. I found many drink recipes calling for milk, turmeric, and ginger root. I sampled different amounts of each ingredient and feel this is a perfect balance between creamy almond milk, spicy ginger, and the earthy taste of turmeric. This is a less spiced version of Haldi Ka Doodh."

Fantastic! This was my first time using fresh turmeric root and I picked a winner of a recipe! I can see myself making this over and over again. No changes needed. Fresh turmeric is so much bet...

I made it with coconut milk, powder ginger, powder turmeric, cinnamon, black pepper! It turned out great!

For your body to absorb the tumeric you need to add 1/4 teas pepper. Also like!email other viewer coconut oil is a great additive

Soooo delicious and soooo healthy! Next time I make it, I'm going to add a banana! I did use agave nectar instead of honey, I love it!

Good, however I agree with another reviewer. It needs peppercorns. I also like more of a bite so I add a dash of cayenne. Coconut oil is also nice for body!

Taste awesome!

Nothing to change here! I was skeptical in making this, but it's surprisingly good and with many health benefits. Consumed nightly for just over a week and actually felt it helped me feel better...
