Golden Milk is a great way to get your daily dose of turmeric. Turmeric is used by yogis for flexibility of the spine and stiff joints. First is the recipe for Golden Milk and then the Tumeric Paste recipe .
1/8 tsp. turmeric
1/2 cup water
1 cup milk (dairy or soy – original recipe is with dairy milk)
2 T almond oil (optional)
Boil water and turmeric in small saucepan over medium-high heat, for 8 minutes (the turmeric must be fully cooked). Meanwhile, bring milk and almond oil to boiling point in separate saucepan and remove from heat. Combine the two mixtures and add honey to taste.
(Recipe is From Vegtables with Love by Siri Ved Kaur Khalsa.)
1/2 cup tumeric powder
1 1/2 cups water
Combine the tumeric powder and water in a pan over medium heat. Simmer, covered, for about 8 minutes. Be careful, it will bubble and spit. Stir often and check if more water is needed – the mixture will reduce to a thick milkshake like consistency. Once cooled, keep refrigerated in a covered container. Great to add a 1/2 tsp. or more to a hot drink or to a cup of juice to get your daily dose of tumeric : )
