Golden Milk is a drink, which is a great help for stiff joints as it is an anti-inflammatory, and is asource of lubrication for the system. This is the recipe used bypractitioners of yoga who have creaking joints, lots of cracking, andpain in the knees and back from sitting in a cross-legged position. Itis also really great for those who simply have a need for a deep,healing sleep. Your sleep may be so rejuvenating that your voice may bedeeper and more resonant in the morning. The turmeric is good for manyailments including liver trouble.
It is prepared in two parts:
(1) Prepare a golden yellow turmeric paste by taking a 2.5 to 3 TBs ofturmeric powder to 1 cup of pure water and simmer on low heat for 8 minutes. Itwill form a thick paste. There is an important reaction that takes placeat 8 minutes. This will keep for 2 weeks in a jar in the refrigerator.
(2) After the paste is made, once daily for 40 days, for each cupof Golden Milk you want, blend together1 cup of raw milk (almond milk is a good substitute)1 teaspoon of almond oil (best), sesame or any vegetable oil,1/4 to 1 teaspoon, or more, of the turmeric paste as prepared above and then add honey to taste at the very end.While stirring on a low heat, bring the milk just to the boiling point. Remove from heat and add honey.
Optional: The mixture may be then blended in an electric blender to make abeautiful foamy drink. I recommend serving with a little cinnamon and/or a few dashes of nutmeg. Pretend you're at Starbucks.
