Golden Milk is an Ayurvedic healing tea that has long been enjoyed by practitioners of Kundalini yoga. The main ingredient is turmeric, a yellow spice commonly used in foods such as curries. It has many healing properties with its active ingredient ‚Äúcurcurnin.” It is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Studies at the University of Texas suggest it is useful in preventing cancers, and as a treatment against heart disease, type 2 diabetes, Crohn’s disease, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and arthritis.
There is a long-standing tradition in Ayurvedic medicine of using turmeric as a health treatment of inflammation, purifying the blood, ‘lubricating’ the joints, and supporting the female reproductive system.
Cardamom is effective in improving digestion, relieving stomach cramps and gas. It helps with cleansing the body as it has detoxifying properties. Cardamom enhances appetite and provides relief from acidity in the stomach. It is used in the cure of halitosis. It is beneficial for those suffering from various kinds of respiratory allergies. It also improves mental strength and relieves tension.

Golden Milk Recipe (makes 2 Cups)
1/4 cup water
1/8 teaspoon turmeric
1 cup almond or other nut milk
1-2 tablespoons of almond oil (optional)
Pinch of cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg
Sweeten with stevia, agave syrup or raw honey to taste

Boil water and turmeric in small saucepan over medium-high heat for 8 minutes (the turmeric must be fully cooked). Meanwhile, bring the nut or rice milk to boiling point in a separate pan and remove from heat. As an option you can add almond oil, spices and sweetener. Combine the two mixtures. Enjoy hot or cold. As an option, blend the golden milk in a blender (lowest speed) until frothy and serve with a little bit of cinnamon on top. The oil provides lubrication and energy to the system, while turmeric makes the bones and joints more flexible and provides anti-inflammatory support.

Enjoy!
