How to make Golden Milk
1/8 tsp. turmeric
½ cup water
1 cup organic milk (or coconut milk)
raw, organic honey to taste
Boil water and turmeric for about 8 minutes as the turmeric has to be fully cooked. In a separate pot, bring the milk to a boil and remove from heat. Combine the two mixtures and add honey to taste. I would also recommend to add a little nutmeg since it also offers so many amazing healing benefits.
Drink a cup of warm turmeric milk two or three times per day for best results.
