Warming spices such as Cayenne, Turmeric, Black Pepper, Cinnamon and Ginger help us feel cosier at this time of year, they also improve circulation and can reduce inflammation. You can use these spices in your everyday cooking, but golden milk is a delicious way to get your daily dose!
Here’s my favourite recipe – coconut milk and other nut milks also taste great, however I find rice milk is too thin for this recipe.
Ingredients for two people:
500 ml almond milk
2 teaspoons turmeric
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of ginger
Pinch of nutmeg
Pinch of ground black pepper
Pinch of cayenne pepper, too, if you can handle some zing!
1. Gently warm the almond milk in a small pot on the stove.
2. Add spices and stir through with a whisk for a couple of minutes.
3. Pour into two mugs and sprinkle some extra nutmeg for garnish.
4. Add an optional teaspoon of raw honey to sweeten.
