Golden Milk (or Turmeric Latte)

So this is my current addiction...

... if you have not tried golden milk yet, you totally totally have to! 

Winter is almost over and here in Germany these days are like the last ones of Winter. Its still pretty cold, its freezing at night and getting ok warm during the day. However, this weather is still perfect to cuddle up in a blanket at night and to drink some warm and spicy golden milk. Oh I love it! 

So what is golden milk? Its a spicy "milk shake" or maybe more of a latte, made of black pepper, ginger, cinnamon and the magic ingredient - turmeric
Turmeric truely is a magic ingredient, it is shown to be anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, antiseptic,analgesic, to boost immunity, to be anti-carcinogenic, to promote digestive health, to detoxify the liver, to help against high blood pressure, to support memory and brain function to lower triglycerides and the list goes on and on! 

Turmeric is basically what makes curry powder yellow. You can buy turmeric as a powder, or even better, fresh turmeric roots. I prefer the roots, but if you find it difficult to get hand on them, just go for the powder! 

When you add black pepper to turmeric it enhances its bioavailability by 1,000 times - this is why black pepper is a MUST in the golden milk (also it gives this special taste...hmmm..)

Can it get any healthier? Of course! Add some ginger! Like turmeric ginger has anti-Inflammatory effects, induces cell death in cancer cells and is an analgesic, so it helps with pain relief (Try to drink golden milk next time you have a head ache!).

To add some extra antioxidants, I always add a little bit of cinnamon too - I also just love the taste of cinnamon! 

Okay, so here is what you need to make my kind of golden milk (there are other recipes out there all slightly different):

Aprox. 1 Liter warm water
A handful of soaked cashews (soak them overnight or some 5-10 hours) 
A handful of dates
Half a little finger os ginger root
Half a little finger of turmeric root
Some black pepper
Some cinnamon

Put all together in a high speed blender and blend it all up until you have a smooth milk. 

If you do not have a high speed blender you can always use some store bought plant milk, like soy milk or almond milk and add some maple syrup for sweetness instead of using dates. You can also use ground ginger and ground turmeric. However, you get the most creamy, smooth and tasteful golden milk when you use fresh ingredients :)

Enjoy! And have a wonderful weekend!
Sending much love!
