Golden Turmeric Milk Tea

Golden Turmeric Milk Tea

Like many runners, I suffer from a variety of aches and pains as a result of long distance running.  And like most runners, I prefer to use natural approaches before reaching for a bottle of pills to ease my pains.

Pinterest is full of homemade remedies for everything from the common cold to upset tummies, and everything in between.  Versions of this “golden milk tea” recipe have been circulating Pinterest for a while, so I thought I’d give it a try.  After studying about a dozen different versions, I mixed and matched and tweaked it it a little until I was happy with the flavor.  It’s a pretty simple recipe and very easy to make. 

Golden Turmeric Milk Tea

Turmeric is the key ingredient in Golden Milk Tea and contains the chemical compound curcumin. You can find turmeric in bulk on Amazon here.

One of my pet peeves is finding a recipe I love, only to have to scroll down a mile on the blog post to get the actual recipe.  So let’s just get to it, shall we?

Recipe Notes

You may want to keep a small spoon handy while you sip, as the ingredients tend to thicken at the bottom.

You can also add cayenne or ginger if you want to take it up a notch.  Adjust the ingredients to your liking!

Important:  Raw honey should not be given to children 12 months of age due to the risk of infant botulism.

Disclaimer:  It's important to note that curcumin has not been successful in any clinical studies, so use at your own discretion.  If it works for you, all the better!  Personally, I have been drinking one mug, once a day, and while I'm not pain-free, it significantly reduces the intensity of my aches and pains for at least a few hours.
