Turmeric Milk – My Favorite Winter Warmer

There’s nothing like hot milk to warm you up when the weather outside puts a chill in your bones. Turmeric milk is popular in yoga circles, and once I made this recipe, it became my new warm milk go-to. Try it, and you may never drink hot chocolate again!

A good source of protein and calcium, milk nourishes and satiates. Turmeric not only adds a cheerful golden yellow color to the milk, it contains a powerful heart-healthy compound called curcumin. Curcumin is an antioxidant, which means it helps your body fight free radical stress and inflammation.

I add several grinds of black pepper to my turmeric milk because the piperine in pepper helps our bodies absorb the beneficial curcuminoids in turmeric, and gives the turmeric milk a unique, peppery bite. A little raw honey lends just the right balance of sweetness and nourishment to the soothing warm milk. Choose organic milk when possible to avoid artificial hormones, GMOs, and pesticide residues.

You’ll need:

1 to 2 cups whole milk

½ to 1 tsp ground turmeric

3 to 8  grinds black pepper

1 tsp raw honey

In a saucepan, heat the milk to almost a simmer. Stir in turmeric and a few grinds of black pepper until well blended. Pour into a mug, sweeten with honey, and enjoy!
